Coverage of the women's Wimbledon final on July 2 and the men's final on July 3 will be beamed live in 3D direct to homes on digital terrestrial, satellite and cable TV.
The BBC's broadcast, in collaboration with the All England Lawn Tennis Club, AELTC and Sony Professional, will use the existing BBC HD channel available at Freesat channel 109, Freeview 54, Sky 169 and Virgin Media 187.
Viewers will need a 3D-ready TV set to watch the broadcast on BBC HD, but will not need to purchase additional receiver or set top box equipment.
There are also plans to run live 3D screenings of the men's singles final at selected 3D-enabled cinemas and at BBC Television Centre in West London. People can apply for tickets to the screenings at the BBC website from today until June 13.
The BBC's full Wimbledon coverage will be available in standard and high definition on BBC One, BBC One HD, BBC Two and the BBC HD channel.
Danielle Nagler, the head of BBC HD and 3D, said: "I'm delighted that in this anniversary year we're bringing UK audiences a new way of getting close to the action on Centre Court. I'm sure that 3D will only add to the drama as the world's greatest players compete for the championship."
Paul Davies, BBC executive producer of sport, commented: "During our 75 years of televising the Wimbledon Championships the BBC has continually broken new ground in broadcasting techniques. This unique 3D transmission is the latest innovation to bring to life all the tension, drama and excitement on one of the most iconic arenas in the world".
BBC Vision director George Entwistle added: "We know how much audiences already enjoy the BBC's Wimbledon television coverage. This is a hugely important experiment for us and I'm pleased that we have the opportunity to show some of our stunning sports coverage to our audiences, in 3D, for free."
The landmark live 3D broadcast on all of the UK's major television platforms is part of the BBC's experimentations with the emerging broadcast technologies.
Writing on a BBC blog, the corporation's principal technologist Andy Quested revealed that five extra camera positions will be used for the 3D coverage of the men's and women's finals.
Quested said that his team has been working hard on getting the encoders for BBC HD ready to handle the 3D transmission, which requires more bandwidth than a normal HD broadcast.
"When they're happy, all the BBC HD Channel encoders will be updated. As we are transmitting on all platforms (Freeview, Freesat, Sky and Virgin) there's a lot of testing to do!" he said.
"When the 3D update is complete a modified BBC HD Channel promo will replace the current version. This has a short 3D clip and a change to the test card to help us check registration."
Quested added: "If all goes to plan, the 3D changes will be made during the morning of June 16 and they will change back to the current settings on July 6."
Just like the existing Sky 3D channel, Quested said that BBC HD will transmit a side-by-side 3D picture, meaning the images are run next to each other with the specialist 3D glasses interpreting the feed to create the required depth.
The 3D coverage of the Wimbledon Finals will possibly offer a glimpse as to how the BBC could run live 3D broadcasts of the London Olympics in 2012.
A BBC spokesperson said that the corporation is "committed to bringing the Olympics alive for the licence fee payer in the UK", but stressed that talks over what content will be available to rights holders in 3D are "still ongoing".
The crucial issue for the BBC with any major sporting events is whether the coverage can be broadcast to the free-to-view audience on digital terrestrial.
It seems apparent, therefore, that should the landmark live 3D broadcast of Wimbledon on all digital TV platforms prove a success, it will most likely provide the blueprint for distributing the key Olympic events in 3D next year.
Alongside the 3D coverage, viewers can also watch Wimbledon via live stream on the BBC Sport website, or via the BBC Red Button interactive service.
BBC iPlayer will offer up to two full matches every day from the tournament, and highlights programme Today At Wimbledon will be available on-demand in HD and SD.
Virgin Media has already broken ground for live 3D tennis broadcasting in the UK by showing coverage of the French Open tournament on cable TV as part of a deal with Eurosport.
