Sky will broadcast this year's FA Cup final, between Manchester City and Stoke City, live in 3D on 14 May - without ad breaks to spoil the effect, apparently.

    Crock of Sh*t

    3D is a load of balls. It basically gives you a headache and lowers the quality. For once, Techrepublic puts the point across very well.

    But the only reason

    I bought a 3dTV subscribe to skys' extortionate package was to watch Barry Sheen sell me Cillit Bang in 3d :(

    Doesn't give me a headache. Certainly far less so than opinion masquerading as fact on these forums.
