New Channel: 24/7 HDTV 3D channel to be added soon, 3net

February 11, 2011 by  

We have frequently lamented the future of HD 3D, but yet another seeker of 3D fortune has sprung up, and we aren’t sure what to think really. It could be a huge success, or with its limited viewership (DirecTV only at first apparently), it could crash and burn. Read on:

The number of 24/7 broadcasting 3D channels in the US will go from one to three next week, now that Sony, Imax and Discovery have announced the launch of their channel, 3net, on DirecTV alongside its existing n3D channel and ESPN 3D, which will start looping its sports videos 24/7 on Valentine’s Day. Scheduled to go live at 8 p.m. Sunday night on channel 107 it promises fresh debuts all month with a new show added to the rotation every night at 9 p.m. It’s big promise is to “offer viewers the largest library of native 3D entertainment content in the world by the end of 2011″ although any 3D TV owners who don’t have DirecTV would probably just be glad if it got added to their channel lineups anytime soon.

We’ll keep you updated as this goes along. No predictions yet, so we’ll where it leads.
