Why do Sky find it necessary to scramble the 3D Test Card?
I have been told that this is the best way of making sure all my TV settings are correct, but cannot access it.
The 3D channel shows very little sport, but Sky want to force me to pay for a sports subscription to watch it.
What other way is there of accessing this channel?

I have searched everywhere but cannot find the test card. It says on the 3D video with Zoe Ball, that you can use the test card to test brightness, sound synch etc, but it makes no mention of where to access it. Can you help?

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lateness of my reply.
To have access to any of the 3D content from Sky, you need to a Sky World customer, unfortunately if you do not subscribe to the Sports package this would not be possible.
I appreciate that this may not be the answer you were looking for from us.

Does anyone know where to find the 3D test card and how to use it? I have spoken to several different people at sky and they have no idea what i ame talking about!
It shows up in the EPG quite often so you should be able to find it - it also often appears in between programmes. The audio explains it.
BBC HD have their own version usually shown 2-3 times a day during the Preview programme.

I don't think your on the same page as Mitch26 here!
When watching the Test Card on Sky 3D at 1145 Zoe Ball clearly states that 'she will not go into the settings right now' (ie the brightness/contrast/dolby tests etc) but if you go to sky.com/3dtestcard you can find out where to access them.
At the end she says 'Dont forget the extended test card is available on anytime and online'. I cant find it!
So does any one know where we can access this?!

It does pop up on Anytime every now and again - I kept it in my planner.
It is also seen as a filler in between programmes on Sky 3D - but not listed.
