Oh tidings of joy
TV broadcasts in 3D have been pretty scarce this year. Aside from a few baseball and football games, the World Cup, and some basic DirecTV in-house shows, there hasn't been a whole lot. But we're going to end the year with something that could make your home feel just a bit more extra special this Christmas.

It's been part of the holiday TV makeup since the 1960s and has remained relatively unchanced over the last 44 years. Hundreds of millions of viewers have tuned in to see the relaxing fireplace burning with classic Christmas music in the background.
This year, though, you can make it feel like that log is so close you can touch it. For the first time, its producers will make the TV special available in 3D. Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cablevision, and Cox have all signed up to offer the 3D feed to their customers.
"Cable raised the bar a few years ago with the first high-definition crackling fire. Now this year for the first time, many systems are also showing the 'Yule Log' in 3D, in addition to high definition and standard definition," said the show's production company in a statement.
