Is Movies included in the Sky 3D Free Week?
No, Sky Movies isn’t included. This is because of the agreements we have in place with the Studios. Any existing Sky
World customers will be able to view Movies content through Anytime during this period.
What do customers need to do to set this up?
Absolutely nothing! It will happen automatically. All they’ll need is a 3D TV in 3D viewing mode and connected to their
Sky+HD box to view the content.
Can non-Sky World customers view any recorded 3D content after the Sky 3D Free Week?
Yes, HD Customers will be able to play-back any 3D content they’ve recorded during the 3D Sampling Week, as long as
they keep their HD subscription active on their account.
If customers want to continue enjoying 3D after the sample period they just need to contact us, either through
Interactive (red-button) online or through Service, to take Sky World and activate their account for 3D.
The 3D Sampling Week applies to direct-to-home customers only and not Sky Business customers.
