I don't think you will ever see that from the leader in sports.
This story is even getting air time on WGN America, watching the noon news today which quoted the story and saying the channel would be added 1/7/2010.
Any word how soon after the 3D channel launch D* will unveil a long waaited Quadrophonic music channel? :lol:
Loved Avatar and I did not get the usual 3D headache but my eye's where red and watering from about halfway through the movie. IMO 3D is not going to be very popular unless they can figure out how to ditch the glasses and the eye strain.
ESPN to Launch 3D TV Network in June:
So, will this be the channel DirecTV will be launching first? Hmmm...
Piggybacking onto that:
ah - kheldar beat me to it...
It'll be stupid for D* not to get this channel, specially for the world cup.
Or would D* wait for D14 and try again in 4 years?
It looks like an add-on adapter will be required for the Mitsubishi DLP's to be able to display 3D.
There is no information on the cost of this adapter yet.
I hope that it doesn't turn out to be like the Mits "Promise Module" that would add ATSC tuner and firewire support, it was $1K to get it installed.
I wish there would be an add on tuner for previous TV we already have...my TV is a year and a half old and i cant use it for 3-D ughh
Yet another reason I'm glad to be going to the CES this weekend....
In a not so many years, a lot of the pictures taken at the Winter '10 CES will be as funny as this....
... and people will be laughing and talking about how back when that "funny picture" was taken at the 2010 CES, people were actually saying that a lot of stuff on TV would soon be in 3D, while all the experts try to figure out why more people didn't rush out to replace their new >$1000 TVs with new 3D TVs.
Even though 3D technology has vastly improved since the above picture was taken, 3D TV will be little more than a niche market, just like 3D theatrical movies continue to be a niche market a quarter of a century after the superior polarized glasses technology was rolled out and began to be regularly experienced by the masses.
"I see white people."
C'mon, Haley Joel, be nice.
For someone such as myself who has problems with their eyes, 3-D is a complete waste.
The cost of glasses is also something which needs to be considered. I saw a article the other day discussing this and stating glasses will run at least $200.00 each. I'm sorry but I am not about to spend an additional $1200 (on top of the cost of a new equipment) for each member of my family (not to mention guests will need a pair as well) to watch 3-D at home.
It was already funny last year at CES 2009...saw 4 major 3D demo exhibits there, with folks standing in line to get in...
I suspect that when I get there this coming weekend, CES 2010 will be much the same...with perhaps more 3D vendors there...
So does drinking alot of alcohol but that doesn't seem to stop alot of people nowadays.
Yes, we will be checking out 3D Exhibits won't we!!!
Now that we've read both Discovery and ESPN are launching 3D channels in 2010...it will be interesting to see what kind of traction it gets.
As we know....DirecTV intends of supporting at least one 3D channel in 2010...perhaps even both of those.
I really enjoyed seeing the 3D Exhibit last year at CES that showed Football in 3D.
It looked like the Football Player was going to run out of bounds right into my lap.
Very Cool but would I want to see it every day. I don't think so. It is great for certain types of shows or movies but I don't want to see everything in 3D.
Maybe Adult Educational Videos but not the Evening News or Nancy Grace!!! YIKES!!! :eek2:
