sort of sporting event in 3D but always forget to DVR it on ESPN 3D, here's some good news. The nation's first 3D network will now be broadcasting live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When ESPN 3D launched last year, it was only airing programming for specific live events. A total of 60 sporting events were aired over ESPN 3D in 2010.
Now, thanks to that back catalog, when there isn't a live game ESPN 3D will air previously taped events. This makes it the only multi-carrier 3D network with 24/7 programming.
ESPN 3D also only airs 3D commercials, so this news must mean it has found good advertising partners to air a constant 3D stream.
"As we continue to expand the number of 3D events on the channel, it made sense operationally to transition ESPN 3D to a 24-7 network. We've been very pleased with the rate at which our affiliates have adopted ESPN 3D in its first year and we continue to look for new ways to serve fans, advertisers and affiliates with the best 3D sports content available," said the network's executive VP Sean Bratches.
The next live ESPN 3D broadcast will be today at 10:30 PM Eastern Time, with the Los Angeles vs Phoenix NBA game.

iPhone 6 Plus Has Not the Best Smartphone Screen
The experts at DisplayMate have tested the new iPhone 6 Plus display. While it is impressive, it is not the best smartphone display on the market. Samsung is in the lead. Is it time for Apple to switch to OLED?
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
