All the sports fans receive earlier today a very good notice; ESPN announced its plans to launch a 3D channel in June. ESPN 3D is expected to showcase at least 85 live sporting events.
The first sporting event will be the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match, featuring South Africa vs. Mexico. Other events to be produced in 3D include the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, Summer X Games NBA games, college basketball and college football. .
“This will be a meaningful step to drive adoption of 3D television sets and afford opportunities for our affiliates to create value through new product offerings, and our advertisers, who want fresh sponsorship opportunities,” said Sean Bratches, ESPN’s executive vice president of sales and marketing.
For more than two years has been testing the 3D technology producing college football and basketball games in 3D.
