LG Electronics 3D TV – UK Update

LG Electronics UK (LG) clarifies its agreement to supply TVs for British Sky Broadcasting Group’s (Sky) forthcoming 3D TV service. LG is currently working with Sky to bring 3D TV to pubs and clubs throughout the UK and Ireland. LG will supply 3D TVs nationwide to support the launch of Sky 3D, Europe’s first 3D TV channel. The channel goes live in pubs and clubs from April 2010.

A previous release issued on 16th March 2010 referenced a commercial deal to supply 15,000 3D TVs to Sky. LG Electronics UK would like further clarify the situation. The figure of 15,000 3D TVs is inaccurate. Sky is helping support its commercial customers purchase TVs direct from a UK third party.

“Supporting the roll out of Sky 3D represents a great opportunity for both LG and Sky to bring ground-breaking technology to the UK public and a significant step forward in our desire to showcase the latest TV technology in action” said an LG spokesman.
