Fashion TV is upping its 3D programming. Fashion TV is using Israel’s RR Sat to uplink its 3D programming as part of its H3D channel onto AsiaSat 5, Eurobird 9a and Intelsat 805 for wider distribution.
As announced by RRsat and FashionTV in February 2011, viewers and operators of AsiaSat 5, Eurobird 9a and Intelsat 805 satellites have been able to receive FashionTV’s 3D programming in the beta test mode four times a day for 10 minutes each. After 10 months of testing, FashionTV has decided to extend this to a regular 30-minute 3D window four times per day beginning December 1st.
Fashion TV will start its new 3D service November 1st.
