To many, the lack of consumer consumption regarding 3D HDTV programming has very little to do with a decline in interest regarding the technology. Instead, there simply isn’t much to watch in regards to 3D programming. So, to remedy this situation, consumers can expect more programming on the 3D platform in the coming months.
For example, “Lucretia Borgia”, a popular operatic piece, will be aired in 3D on DirectTV this month. Further, there will be several other 3D releases coming to DirectTV customers. Tron: Legacy, Tangled, Jackass, and Piranha will all be released in 3D, which should excite many that felt that they weren’t getting the content necessary to utilize their recent entertainment upgrades.
Sports have found the 3D movement, as well. ESPN is now offering 3D coverage for major golf events, with 10 hours slated in their coverage of the Masters in Augusta. This could be a risky venture, as many aren’t sure just how sports will translate to the 3D technology. Look for quite an investment on ESPN’s behalf. Should the technology take hold, they’ll want to be the frontrunner for the movement. That’s a guarantee.
