DirecTV managed to add a few channels and now they have taken them away. There is one full time 3D channel, one PPV movie channel and on demand content. DISH has 3D VOD (channel 1 or 501) for movies. There is no need for a "live" PPV channel (just play the same movies from VOD).

Yeah 3d is really a on demand thing IMHO. No need for linear channels. 4k is a different story IMHO.

Yeah, I watched Captain America 3D the other day (only because it was $3 at a local theater).  It was "cool", but I think distracting is a good word.  Just looked a little unrealistic/fake to me.  If it could be perfected (just as clean as a regular HD movie), maybe it would catch on, but I would guess perfection would cost even more.  I'd rather Dish stay away so our bills don't go up even more!  Or make it a $25 add-on, so those who don't want it might see their rates go down. Movie theater 3D glasses suck!  Never tried TV glasses, but I'm guessing they'd be worse (as far as feel), especially having to wear them over glasses.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: dish, dishnetwork, dish network, 3d, 3d channel, 3net
