ESPN 3-D Hits Comcast June 11th

Posted Fri May 14, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The channel will make its Comcast debut just in time for the World Cup.

What's the fascination with showing soccer in 3-D? It's not that soccer is bad, mind you. It's a fine sport. But the big broadcasting companies seem to be obsessed with providing the FIFA World Cup in 3-D.

Comcast is no different. They'll be bringing ESPN 3-D to their customers just in time for the first match of the World Cup. But that won't be the only thing coming to you in beautiful 3-D.

If soccer's not your thing, don't worry. College football games (including the BCS Championship game in January) will all be shown in 3-D. The same goes for NBA basketball and next year's college basketball Big East tournament.

And of course, what would 3-D be without things getting a little extreme? The summer and winter X Games will be broadcast in full 3-D. Say what you will about the relevance of the X Games, they'll be great to watch.
