DISH Network Introduces 3D Movies On Demand

Posted Fri Dec 17, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

As a bonus, everyone who orders one will be entered for a chance to win a 3D TV. (Begging the question, why are they ordering the movies in the first place?!)

The folks at DISH are stepping up the 3D content on their service by adding On Demand 3D movies. Say what you will about the quality of the titles, it's content in a market that's starved for it.

Among the movies launching this month are 'The Last Airbender' and 'A Christmas Carol.' You'll have to wait until next month to watch 'Saw: The Final Chapter' and ' Despicable Me.'

As an added bonus, everyone that orders a 3D movie will be entered into a sweepstakes. The prizes include Fox Family prize packs, Sony Webbie HD cameras, and a 46 inch 3D TV.

3D content from DISH will run between $5.99 and $7.99 and will be delivered in up to 1080p resolution.
