While other TV giants like Time Warner Cable and Dish Network still have absolutely no 3D content anywhere in their program guide or schedule, DirecTV is ramping up the competition even steeper, adding 3 more 3D channels.
DirecTV already was one of the initial broadcasters to pick up ESPN 3D from day one, and now it is working on its own library of 3D channgels.
- N3D: This will essentially be DirecTV's 3D hub channel. This is where almost all of its exclusive 3D content will air. From original programming to non-ESPN sports, to concerts and more. DirecTV has partnered with Panasonic to create the new channel, which already has a line-up of unique shows designed specifically for 3D.
- DirecTV Cinema in 3D: This is a new one-stop channel for 3D movies. However, right now there are only two titles available, both from Imax - Deep Sea 3D and Under the Sea 3D
- N3D On Demand: DirecTV's first 3D on demand channel, this channel offers programming from N3D, as well as on-demand clips from all of DirecTV's other 3D networks, including ESPN 3D.
"Our innovative technology has allowed us to lead the industry in HD and we are continuing on that same path by establishing ourselves as the premier destination for the best 3D viewing experience available. We are proud to be partnering with Panasonic and are excited to deliver this new dimension of television to millions of DIRECTV HD customers across the country," said DirecTV EVP Derek Chang in a statement.
The satellite provider did a similar thing with HD. It has an entire, massive lineup of exclusive HD channels that it worked to attain on its own.
