As a UK citizen paying my TV licence I cry foul, this is Wimbledon all over again, half baked and showing the world how we suck at 3-D live broadcasts.
Be grateful that the BBC is showing so little interest in 3D; if they ever launch a full-blown 3D channel of their own, they will probably start charging us extra for a "3D Television Licence"!
Their official reason for not investing in 3D is that they don't want to spend licence-payers' money on a technology that so few of their viewers will actually be able to watch. By that logic, they should never have invested in colour forty years ago. Or stereo sound; or high-definition, for that matter.
Last July, the BBC's Head of 3D resigned, to work in the private sector. I didn't even know they had
a Head of 3D.
