2011 Brings to You a 24-hour 3D Television Channel

Well, the future is almost here. Discovery, Imax, and Sony have joined to bring you 3D television (possibly).  This was announced today by two people who knew about the deal.

This deal is expected to be elaborated on sometime before CES (or on CES), where 3D TV’s will be a hot topic.

The three companies will own equal stakes in the channel, according to one of the people with knowledge of the deal, who requested anonymity because the channel had not been announced.

Discovery Communication, which controls Discovery, TLC, and other channels will distribute the channel, which has a 2011 broadcast premiere date. It is expected to showcase a mix of 3D content, including entertainment and sports. It will also show some of the natural history programming that Discovery is well known for.

Also, ESPN announced that they will be delivering an “ESPN 3D” channel starting in June 2010. There will be a minimum of 85 events shown on the channel in the first year of its operation.

Well, it looks like we are getting closer to the future will every passing year. Soon, we can all be expected to have full immersion TV that’s completely interactive. [NYT]
