24/7 n3D channel on DirecTV starts July 1


If you have DirecTV and a 3D-capable HDTV, starting in July you'll have a reason to wear your shutter glasses all day, every day. The first 24-hour n3D channel starts broadcasting over the satellite service at 9:30 a.m. EDT.

The channel is being produced by DirecTV and Panasonic, both of which are working hard at building 3D momentum. You don't need a Panasonic 3D HDTV to watch the new channel, though; it will work with any 3D HDTV. So far, the only content confirmed is NASCAR and baseball games, but hopefully 3D movies will start to come through in time.
