Fashion TV (FTV) will start test-broadcasting in full 3D on February 18th. FTV’s 3D signals will beam out daily at 2pm and 11pm for Europe, Asia (Hong Kong time) and the USA (ET), from a total of 10 satellites around the globe. Signals are being uplinked by RRSat. FTV is building up content, including the stunning ‘Victoria’s Secrets’ catwalk show, in order to launch a full-time service later this summer.

FTV says “Fashiontv H3D viewers will see most current and sexy fashion shows such as Burberry, Dolce&Gabbana, Gucci, Cavalli, Chanel, Victoria’s Secret, Armani and top models like Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, Tyra Banks, Gisele Bundchen, and reports from the Oscars, Monte Carlo Grand Prix, Cannes film festival and major fashion weeks from around the world. The fashion world and its top models look more sexy, hot and attractive in 3D in recent close up reports.”
