KUALA LUMPUR: Like the semi-final challenges, the World Cup final will also come “alive” in your living room — in 3D!
Malaysians are among the world’s first to catch the World Cup matches via the latest craze in viewing.
In the words of a fan who watched the Netherlands vs Uruguay semi-final match in 3D: “It’s like actually being in the stadium.”
Astro chief operating officer Henry Tan said Astro B.yond customers with the sports package will be the first in South-East Asia to watch football in 3D.
“I believe this will add more excitement to football fans’ viewing experience,” he said.
La Bodega general manager Sebastien Delnatte, who also watched the semi-final match in 3D, said it was an experience like no other.
“I like how the players ‘pop out’ when the camera pans along the field,” he said, adding that he would like to see more sports programmes in 3D, especially F1 racing.
“It was quite an experience, like I was actually in the stadium,” said sponsorship manager M. Padmanabhan, who watched the last World Cup final in Germany four years ago.
“I would definitely recommend hardcore football fans to get a 3D TV to watch the final.
“It is the next best thing to actually being there (at Soccer City) yourself.”
To catch the experience, Astro B.yond customers must subscribe to the sports package and have a 3D TV at home.
The World Cup finals is at 2.30am (Malaysian time) on July 12.
