Cool ESPN launching a 3D channel in june

Quote:
(USA TODAY) -- ESPN is going 3D. The venerable sports network will launch ESPN 3D on June 11 with a World Cup soccer match, creating what it says will be the first all three-dimensional television network to the home.

ESPN 3D expects to showcase at least 85 live sporting events during the first year. There'll be no reruns initially, so the network will be dark when there's no 3D event. Among other events planned for 3D broadcast: the Summer X Games (extreme sports), NBA games, college basketball and college football.

ESPN is committing to the 3D network through June 2011. "We're going to assess the viability of this as we did with all our businesses," says Sean Bratches, an ESPN executive vice president for sales and marketing. He's confident that sports fans will immerse themselves in the technology.

Will you need to be wearing those 3-D glasses?

even if you had to wear the 3D glasses, that's sick. I'd enjoy that immensely.

There are already a few good 3D tv's available, might cost a few grand though. Apparently blu ray will go 3D soon too, PS3 already has the technology to run it...3D's becoming the way of the future

I bought my 46" 1080p last year. I won't be jumping on the 3D bandwagon for a while. Sounds like 3D is something still greatly in planning and development.

FYI, you'll need glasses to enjoy this new channel if you have any normal flat screen or any sort of t.v. for that matter.

All three sets (due to ship in August) use "active-shutter" 3D glasses from XpanD (a competitor of RealD, the company that's partnering with Sony, JVC, and Samsung for their 3D technology). Using an infrared sync signal, the XpanD glasses feature left and right lenses with LCD shutters that open and close rapidly in sync with the screen, all the better to ensure that your left and right eyes are seeing the correct left-or-right video image at the precise moment.

Wicked, more money to spend. Bit it would look cool if in a foot ball game a guy gets tackled and it looks as if he is about to hit you

apparently if you look at the TV images without the glasses, you will go blind.

Well I dunno if you'll go blind but I'm certain you need Glasses to watch the new 3D TVs.

I think this is a great move by ESPN to jump on the wagon before anyone else.

Come to think of it

I got my HD PVR
I got my LCD TV
I got my surround

NOW I NEED TO BY 3D TV... dam time to get a second job
