Verizon will be one of the last major satellite/cable providers to offer a dedicated TV channel for 3D content, with its offering slated for launch sometime during the upcoming holiday season.

Cablevision, Cox, Time Warner, and Comcast all have infrastructure in place to have a dedicated 3D channel in place for this week's Masters golf tournament. DirecTV plans to launch a full-time 3D channel in June.

In a statement, Verizon said that "new technology – especially entertainment opportunities as great as 3D TV promises to be – must be accommodated and delivered rationally and superbly, just as we have done with our HD TV offering."

As of now, there aren't any plans to bring entertainment (non-sports) 3D content to TV providers. Once movies like Avatar begin to hit the airwaves, though, you can bet that will change.
