Fox Sports beats Nine to first 3D sports broadcast

Socceroos’ farewell match against New Zealand to trump State of Origin 3D broadcast

Fox Sports stole Channel Nine's thunder yesterday by announcing that it will broadcast the first 3D sporting event on Australian television next week.

The Socceroos' last home match before the 2010 FIFA World Cup — a friendly against New Zealand at the MCG — will be filmed using Sony 3D cameras and production technology. It was expected that Channel Nine's footage of the first State of Origin match on 26 May would be the first 3D sports broadcast in Australia; Fox has beaten the network by two days.

Channel Nine will still hold the honour of being the first broadcaster to display 3D television footage on Australian free-to-air television.

“As Australia’s leading sports broadcaster, Fox Sports is proud to be making history by delivering an Australian television first to viewers around the country,” said Fox Sports Chief Executive David Malone. "This live and exclusive Socceroos 3D experience is FOX SPORTS next step in an on-going quest to take the sports broadcasting experience to exciting new levels for all Australian fans."

Coverage of the Socceroos’ farewell match against New Zealand will commence Monday 24 May on Fox Sports 3D (Channel 200) at 7.20pm AEST.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
