AT&T and ESPN have announced the addition of ESPN 3D to the U-verse TV channel lineup. AT&T U-verse TV customers will be able to watch 25 2010 FIFA World Cup matches and nearly 100 live sporting events in the next year in 3D.
The first ESPN 3D 2010 FIFA World Cup match will air on June 11, featuring South Africa vs. Mexico. Other events to be delivered in 3D include the 2010 State Farm Home Run Derby, X Games 16, Winter X Games 15, college basketball and football games and the 2011 BCS National Championship Game.
3D programming is supported on all customers’ existing U-verse DVRs and receivers, without any additional set up or U-verse equipment upgrades. Customers will need a 3D-ready TV set and 3D glasses. The ESPN 3D channel is available to U-verse TV HD customers (with the U100 package or above) who subscribe to the 3-D Technology Package for $10 a month.
