The yet unnamed 24/7 3D channel launches in 2011 with plenty of content.

The joint venture of Sony, Discovery, and IMAX has announced a large amount of content for their upcoming 3D channel – the first 24/7 fully programmed 3D television network in the U.S.

The group announced four new original series which trend toward documentary. 'Abandoned Planet' explores cities that have become completely abandoned, 'Africa in 3D' and 'China' have obvious focuses and 'Jewels of the World' explores both natural and cultural wonders like the Grand Canyon and Cambodia's Angkor Wat.

Six exclusive U.S. premiers were announced as well, including the television debut of 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' and 'Monster House,' as well as the hour long shows 'Attack of the Giant Jellyfish,' 'The Haunted,' 'Into the Deep 3D' and ' Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D.'

The channel itself will launch in 2011 with all this programming and more.
