FIFA considers scrapping 3-D coverage of World Cup
 
FIFA is considering scrapping 3-D broadcasts of the next World Cup, describing ESPN's decision to abandon the format as another setback for the technology.
 
The sports network said earlier this week that there weren't enough viewers in the United States to make 3-D broadcasts worth the investment, and ESPN's dedicated channel will close by the end of the year.
 
"We know that the technology has had a few setbacks in recent days, if you refer to some of the statements by (ESPN),'' Niclas Ericson, FIFA's director of television, said Wednesday at a briefing during the Confederations Cup.
