It didn’t take long for other carriers to get in on the NASCAR 3D action. Two days after NASCAR announced DIRECTV would carry the Coke Zero 400 race on July 3, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Bright House have been added to the list of carriers. The coverage will be presented in TNT’s Wide Open widescreen letterbox format free of commercial breaks. The broadcast will feature two custom 3D feeds – one from various 3D cameras set up along the track and the other capturing pit crew action.
The 3D production will also be viewable through NASCAR’s TNT RaceBuddy web service (www.nascar.com/racebuddy3D), but there are requirements and a 3D-capable PC is one of them.
The 3D action begins at at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time on TNT, with a “Countdown to Green” pre-race show starting at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
