Virgin Media news

Virgin Media has offered a boost to tennis fans by adding Eurosport's live French Open 3D stream to its pay TV platform.

Cable broadband and TV subscribers will be able to tune into all the action from Roland Garros over the next fortnight, as Andy Murray chases a maiden Major win.

The Scot will have to be at his very best to triumph on the clay, with Rafael Nadal chasing a seventh win in eight attempts in Paris.

Either way, Virgin Media TV subscribers will not have to miss a second of the action - or compromise on their viewing quality,

Like its rival broadcaster Sky, the service provider is offering wall-to-wall 3D coverage of the tournament, which runs from May 27th to June 10th.

Virgin Media customers simply need a HD compatible set-top box and a 3D-enabled HDTV to enjoy three-dimensional coverage on channel 523.

Eurosport - the first company to present live tennis in 3D - has also committed to broadcast over 100 hours of 3D content from the London Olympic Games this summer.
