No one really thinks of a golf tournament as a place to kick-off a key moment in the world of high-tech entertainment, but it appears as though the Masters Tournament will be defined as the first big televised 3D event.
Comcast was the first to announce that it would create a special 3D channel for the sporting event, which will be accessible to anyone with a 3D set without the need for a new set-top box.
Cable provider Cox later announced it would air 3D coverage, and now Time Warner and Cablevision are following suit, according to industry publication Multichannel News.
For all of these companies, the Masters Tournament, which begins April 7th and lasts through the 11th, will be the very first program that is broadcast in 3D.
As of now, Panasonic and Samsung are the only manufacturers that offer 3D sets, though every single one of the big names (Sony, Philips, LG, etc) has multiple models in the works.
The 3D signals for the Masters Tournament will be produced by ESPN.
