    Very much agree, the Masters in 3D was fantastic!

    I'm still not impress by the current 3D technology.

    Maybe when they mount a camera in a baseball catcher's helmet. I might be impress.

    My family and friends really enjoy 3d movies, especially ones like Hugo. Last year we watched 2 or 3 football games in 3d and also enjoyed the whole new perspective. It was like being on the sidelines and watching. We'll miss the football. I think those who dis it and call it a fad really haven't given it much of a chance. I don't think the technology is dying, I think it'll get better. Until it does it won't be profitable.

    We need a premium channel like HBO to step up and offer 3D movies (maybe 4 new not repeated movies a month). For those of us that have invested in a 3D TV would you pay $10mo for this service or something like it? My thinking is that #1 it's almost impossible to rent a 3D blu-ray, #2 going to just one 3D movie a month with a spouse (no kids) and no food purchases will set you back at least $20. In 2011 48 3d movies were released, in 2012 57 3D movies were released, in 2013 37 3D movies are set for release, so they won't run out of new movies to show. I don't even have kids but I would become a HBO subscriber if they offered this option. I think HBO would get a lot of new subscribers, especially considering how many new 3D TV's will be sold each year.

    Indeed. I'm going to miss ESPN 3D. They actually showed a few good events in the format.. I especially enjoyed the BCS National Championship Game in 3D.

    HBO already does have 3D service. So does Starz. They are on demand. I have them both through Verizon FIOS. That's what 3D is good for. Yeah when I first got my 3D TV I watched ESPN 3D for some basketball games but once you've seen it, well you've seen it. Movies are the thing that always was of interest to me when I bought mine. And I didn't pay $1500 for it or anything. I got a good deal a year ago from Best Buy. Got the TV, 3D BR player, glasses, etc for around $1000 total. Since then, anytime we've bought a Blu ray movie that was out in 3D we buy the one with the 3D one included. That along with Starz and HBO's 3D on demand channels is fine.

    I loved watching golf and football in 3D as well as some of the boxing they had on.

    When I had Xfinity/Comcast they carried HBO 3D and Starz 3D on On Demand. When I switched over to DTV I was disappointed to see that they didn't carry that programming. On me for not checking first.
