Now that 3-D is taking over movie theatres across the world. It will soon be invading your television as well.
First ESPN is launching a 3-D channel on June 11. Also, Discovery Communications, Sony Corporation and IMAX have announced that and launching the first 24/7 channel that will be in 3-D.
And, yes you will need those annoying glasses in order to watch this.
Here is the press release. Thanks to Collider:
“The new 3D network will feature high-quality premium content from genres that are most appealing in 3D, including natural history, space, exploration, adventure, engineering, science and technology, motion pictures and children’s programming from Discovery, Sony Pictures Entertainment, IMAX and other third-party providers.”
I blame the success of “Avatar” for this. Sure, that film wasn’t the only film in 3-D, but with its success the industry wants to convert everything to 3-D. OK, so it wouldn’t be solely to blame, but you would dumb to not think that the film would affect this at all.
I can predict now that in 2,020 2-D will be either extinct or on the verge of being extinct. You can call me paranoid, but the way things are going it may come true.
What do you think?
