BT Vision to offer 3D films

BT has entered into an agreement with NBC Universal International Television Distribution for the UK video-on-demand rights to all 3D movie titles the studio will release over the next 12 months.

BT has also signed an agreement with Vertigo to show StreetDance, the first British movie to be shot in 3D.

Under the terms of the NBC Universal deal, Step Up 3D will be available to customers from 29 November, and the animated Despicable Me will be available on BT Vision from 14 March 2011.

Marc Watson, Chief Executive of BT Vision, said: "We already have an extensive catalogue of more than 500 movies in the UK courtesy of our long-term deals with major Hollywood studios and independents like Vertigo. Now Vision viewers can experience films at home in fantastic 3D, thanks to these new deals. This is just the start of 3D on Vision—viewers can expect to hear much more from us in the coming months."
