DirecTV Telecasts MLB All-Star Game on New 3D Channel
By| July 12, 2010
DirecTV, Major League Baseball and FOX Sports, will offer the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in 3D exclusively on DirecTV’s new 3D channel, n3D, powered by Panasonic. The game will be telecast from Angels Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., July 13.
The 3D broadcast will require a separate FOX Sports production crew using nine cameras to cover the game, offering viewers camera angles not normally seen in a regular 2D broadcast. The 3D telecast is available to DirecTV HD customers with an HD 3D TV set and 3D glasses.
DirecTV and Panasonic have recently launched a trio of dedicated 3D channels including n3D powered by Panasonic, DirecTV Cinema in 3D and n3D on demand, which is currently offering replays of ESPN’s 3D coverage of the 2010 World Cup Games.
