The licences allow the trial operators to test new radiocommunications technologies between 19 May 2010 and 19 July 2010 by broadcasting 3D high definition television to viewers with access to 3D-enabled digital television receivers. The trials will include live telecasts of the three State of Origin rugby league matches.

“The 3D TV trials will be broadcast in digital mode by the SBS on UHF channels in Sydney (Channel 35), Adelaide (Channel 29) and Perth (Channel 35) and by the Nine Network in Melbourne (Channel 35), Brisbane (Channel 50), Newcastle (NBN Ltd) (Channel 35), and in Wollongong (WIN Television) (Channel 50). Each trial will carry both SBS and Nine services. Viewers in these locations will access the trial through logical channel number 40 on a 3D-enabled digital television set,” said the ACMA.

ACMA Chairman, Chris Chapman said, “The ACMA supports the development and demonstration of new broadcasting technologies and is pleased to be able to assist with the trialling of 3D TV. It is important people are aware that these trials have only been approved for this two month period.”

The ACMA understands retailers will be using the trials to showcase the first generation of 3D television receivers.
