A cable network has announced it’ll launch a 3-D channel this year, following word last month that DirecTV will launch such a channel.
ESPN will launch a 3D network for home viewers on June 11, USA Today reports.
The network will launch with a World Cup soccer match and broadcast at least 85 live sports events in its first year, including the Summer X extreme sports games and NBA games, college basketball and college football. It will go dark when there’s not a live event on.
The initial commitment from ESPN is just for one year.
