Al Jazeera Sport will broadcast the World Cup in South Africa in 3D from June 11 to July 11 in conjunction with FIFA.The sports network is in the process of building two 3G (3Gbps) studios that are designed to facilitate better transmission of HD 1080p and 3D signals.

Subscribers will have to pay an extra charge on their existing subscriptions to view the channels in 3D, according to Khalifi Bin Nasser Al Ghanim, director general of Al Jazeera Sport.

The 2010 World Cup will also be broadcast by Al Jazeera Sport in HD via satellite.

Al Jazeera Sport has been one of the most profitable divisions of Al Jazeera Network and recently made several technical and business investments.

The Sports network recently purchased the rights to several premium sports broadcasts from ART. It is also in the process of building a brand new studio facility in addition to a 3G facility.

The first of the 3G studios is scheduled to be completed by mid February while the second is scheduled for completion at the end of March.
