Cox Communications says they will offer customers with a 3D HDTV and HD receiver 3D coverage of the Masters Tournament next week from Augusta National Golf Club. The 3D high-definition programming starts with the Par 3 Contest on April 7 at 3 p.m. ET and is offered at no additional charge.
The actual Masters Tournament begins on Thursday, April 8 and continues through Sunday, April 11 starting at either 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. Eastern (those are the times Cox gave out). The 3D live coverage will primarily focus on the second nine of the tournament.
3D glasses are required off course, and your HDTV must be connected via HDMI and switched to 3D mode.
“We consider ourselves fortunate to be a leader in providing this technology, thanks in large part to our valuable partners who share in our commitment to deliver a meaningful and memorable viewing experience,” said Masters Tournament Chairman Billy Payne.
The 3D broadcast will also be available on Masters.com for viewing on 3D-capable PCs.
