3D Kids Programming Coming to 3Net

Posted Thu Aug 25, 2011 at 09:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Two original series are launching on the 3D channel, both aimed at younger audiences.

When 3D programming first hit the airwaves - that's becoming a really inaccurate term, isn't it? - plenty of content was announced. When it comes to children's programming though, there was little to see. Since kids could be an essential market to keep 3D interest going, this seems like a pretty significant oversight.

Two original series are debuting on September 25th - 'Bits and Bolts' and 'Dream Defenders.' More is on the way too, including exclusive 3D movies, the 3D exclusive 'Puppy Bowl,' and other titles. On October 1st, the "3net Three Dee Kids" Saturday and Sunday morning program block will launch.

"The announcement of a dedicated programming block for kids 7-12 and their families marks another important step forward in our mission to provide compelling, diverse and original 3D television content," says 3net CEO Tom Cosgrove. "“It further underscores 3net’s on-going commitment to building upon our leadership position in the dynamic and ever-growing in-home 3D entertainment space."
