Then why would they block that from my TV? That is just silly. That is watchable.

Joe Jackass would see that and call DirecTV wondering why 3D isn't working. While I don't like to be denied access to things like that, it definitely makes sense from a support standpoint.

I can see that point but as they allow me to download it with a warning, they can't give me a warning that says the program will not look right but do you want to watch it anyway.

IIRC A few months ago network TV ran a music video by Michael Jackson in 3D. Can't recall if it was an awards show or his funeral service. Might even have been VH1. Whatever the show was it didn't interest me except the 3D clip. It was awful as I didn't have or know which type glasses were needed. Some parts were pretty blurry. I could see where if you didn't know what it was you could think something was wrong with your TV or box.

That 3D is the old school anaglyph 3D (red/blue). The new 3D is totally different.

Hey, you never know, they may add an option in the setup menu to turn on the 3D channels.

For a fee.

Actually, from what I have seen, I doubt it at this point.

I figured as much. They sure tried to make you believe it was the up and coming 3D. :lol:

Yep, the exact same way Jerry Jones did it during one of their home games last year. If you're going to do 3D, do it right, no need to turn the masses off of the technology.
