DirecTV will add ESPN 3D, a 3D sports TV network, to its upcoming 3D lineup that will offer three dedicated 3D channels.

Launching in June, millions of DirecTV HD customers will have access to a minimum of 85 live sporting events during its first year, beginning June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match, featuring South Africa versus Mexico.

Other events to be produced in 3D include X Games 16, 2010 college football ACC Championship, college basketball and NBA games in 2011.

DirecTV HD customers who subscribe to ESPN will receive ESPN 3D at no additional cost.
