The UAE has been named as one of the first five countries in the world to offer 3D broadcasts on an IPTV platform

According to a report by Informa Media and Telecoms, Etisalat’s 3D launch on June 1 put it among the first five services of its kind globally along with France, Belgium, Portugal and Switzerland.

The telco highlighted the service as one of the benefits drawn from its investment in a high-speed optical fibre network.

“Years ago, at a time when the world was considering the cost and returns of the huge investments that go into building a traditional network, Etisalat took the leap forward,” said Ahmad Abdulkarim Julfar, group COO, Etisalat. “Becoming the first to launch the 3D TV service in the region is a natural and eminent advantage of this network,” he added.

The 3D service is available to eLife triple-play customers and E-vision subscribers.
