Currently, only customers that subscribe to the Sky World digital television package can get the Sky 3D channel and the new plans would significantly change that.
At the moment, Sky have not said whether or not they intend to charge an additional fee to customers that want to subscribe to the 3D channel and a number of different options are also being considered.
One is to potentially expand the service onto its video on demand service Sky Go, whilst another involves potentially making the channel available during set timeslots.
Sky 3D initially started off by showing a wide range of sports and movies content whilst in recent times there has been more of a shift towards providing more documentaries and factual based programming.
During last summers Olympics approximately 350,000 people watched 3D content from the Olympics in 3D and the Sky 3D channel is available to all Sky HD set top box subscribers.
A spokesman for Sky said “As the number of Sky homes that own a compatible TV continues to grow, we are looking at the potential for even more Sky customers to experience Sky 3D.”
