Orange serves up Roland-Garros Tennis Open in 3D

April 12, 2010

Orange has signed multi-year agreements with the French Tennis Federation and with France Télévisions covering Orange's broadcasting of the Roland-Garros French Tennis Open Championships from 2010 to 2013. The Orange sport channel will broadcast in HD the best matches taking place on the Philippe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen courts based on a licensing agreement with France Télévisions, the tournament's official broadcaster.

For the first time ever, Orange will enable its broadband and fibre-optics subscribers who are already equipped with a 3D compatible TV set and special glasses to experience the event in 3D. For the sixth year in a row, Orange will also provide its “Tennis Everywhere” service to keep abreast of matches via TV, PC and mobile phone.
