Comcast 3D Goes Live For the Masters

Posted Thu Apr 8, 2010 at 02:40 PM PDT by Mike Attebery

If you’ve been dying to get some 3D out of your 3D TV, Comcast’s bringing you… well, golf.

Maybe it’s just us, but when we think about 3D, we think about action movies, fast moving sports, and fantastic locations. One thing we don’t think about is golf. It’s just not the spectacle you’d expect from the still nascent technology.

Still, Comcast has officially turned on its 3D feed just in time for The Masters Tournament. So if you’ve got a 3D television and you’ve been looking for some content – you can only watch 'Monsters vs Aliens' so many times – Comcast is as good a place to get it as any.

Comcast customers will get about 2 hours of 3D coverage from the masters. You’ll have to set your TV to 3D mode, which enables a 3D picture but will make the channel guide appear distorted. And of course, you’ll need a 3DTV, glasses and a Comcast HD box.

The Comcast FAQ page has a few tips on getting 3D to work correctly, including “Your 3D glasses may have batteries in them. Please make sure they're good.”
