DirecTV Bringing ESPN 3D To Sports Fans This June
Starting this June (that's just a few months away), DirecTV will begin to broadcast ESPN 3D. ESPN 3D is easily the flagship 3D channel, and at the moment, we can't think of another 3D channel with as much clout. June is a great time to kick things off, as the FIFA World Cup 2010 also begins that month, and yes, those soccer matches will definitely be in 3D.
ESPN 3D will showcase a minimum of 85 live sporting events during its first year, beginning June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match, featuring South Africa versus Mexico. Other events to be produced in 3D include X Games 16, 2010 college football ACC Championship, 2011 BCS National Championship game, college basketball and NBA games in 2011, and best of all, DirecTV subscribers will get the channel at no extra cost.
Now, if only we knew when all of those other cable providers would get it, we could decide whether or not we need to switch to the dish.
