The 3D coverage of the final between the Netherlands and Spain follows a live 3D telecast of the Netherlands vs Uruguay semi-final for invited guests on Wednesday morning.
Subscribers with the new Astro B.yond set-top and a sports package subscription will be able to watch in 3D – if, of course, they are also equipped with a 3D-compatible TV. Astro claims to be the first broadcaster in south-east Asia to offer 3D content.
Astro chief operating officer Henry Tan said: “Malaysians will experience another first with Astro - the historic live telecast of the World Cup final in 3D. This will add more excitement to our customers' viewing experience.”
