Sony's PlayStation 4 console now plays 3D Blu-rays.

Sony has released the 1.75 software update that lets PS4 owners watch Blu-ray discs in the third dimension.

The console has beaten Microsoft's Xbox One, which will offer support at some point in August.

3D channels haven't really taken off, though lately some films – like 'Gravity' – have been well received, with critics claiming they're better in 3D.

Netflix and YouTube also offer 3D streams.

Sky has backed 3D from the off, showing a range of sports and entertainment content in the format. This Christmas, David Attenborough will host 'Conquest of the Skies 3D' on Sky 3D and Sky 1 HD.

Sky's Now TV service also came to Sony's console last week. Again, it beat the Xbox One, which will have to wait "a few weeks".

Now TV offers a range of sports, film, and TV entertainment. There's no subscription, you only pay for what you watch.

Sony is also hard at work making its own TV shows, which will be made available exclusively through the console. The first of these will be a one-off supernatural series called 'Powers'.
