First all-3D TV network to start February 13

updated 06:30 pm EST, Thu February 10, 2011

3net all 3D TV network launches this Saturday

A network fully dedicated to broadcasting 3D TV signals will launch on February 13. Called 3net, it will be offered by DirecTV on channel 107 and is a joint venture between Sony, Discovery Communications and IMAX. On the 13th, the channel will air two one-hour long, original programs in native 3D, China Revealed and Forgotten Planet. A longer movie, Into The Deep 3D, will make its TV debut afterwards.

The programming begins at 8PM on Sunday night. What other shows will be shown the next day remains unknown, as does what the channel will cost to subscribers.

Adoption of 3D TVs has struggled so far and has usually seen only a small percentage of buyers jump in. Higher prices are often the biggest obstacles, but a lack of content besides a handful of 3D movies and games has been another major factor. Many are also waiting for the advent of glasses-free 3D TVs as good as their 2D counterparts. [via CrunchGear]
