ESPN Announces New 3D Network For Sports Fans

January 5, 2010

(ChattahBox) – ESPN has been test running a possible 3D television network for some time, but without plans for a full launch. But this week they announced official plans for opening up their new viewing format.

Starting with the 2010 FIFA World Cup between South Africa and Mexico, ESPN will be offering a full 3D network dedicated to the format.

Viewers will have to get a 3D ready television, some will have to have a set-top box, and 3D glasses.

While this would have been a big fault in the past, leading the idea to flop, 3D technology has become advanced enough in the last several years to make this a viable entertainment option.

Packages from The Walt Disney Network, owners of ESPN, would have a 3D option, similar to HD cable packages.

The 25 World Cup matches and the X Games are both expected to be among the sporting events presented in 3D, in order to offer a more interactive and exciting experience for the viewer.

The move by ESPN has put them at the forefront of modern television technology.

While it isn’t clear whether or not it will go as far as they hope, the latest responses to 3D films seems to suggest it will do well.
