DirecTV to broadcast US Open in 3D

This Labor Day weekend DirecTV will broadcast select US Open tennis matches in 3D on n3D (channel 103) powered by Panasonic. The men’s and women’s third and fourth rounds will air daily in the afternoon from Sept. 4 through Sept. 6, and be available to customers who have a 3D TV system and have received the 3D software upgrade.

Have to miss some of the matches? DirecTV says they will re-air the matches throughout the day following the East Coast live broadcast. Below is the schedule of US Open 3D broadcasts on DirecTV:

  • Sept. 10 from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT
  • Sept. 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. EDT and 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. EDT
  • Sept. 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. EDT

The 3D US Open broadcasts will also be available for viewing at Best Buy and other retails stores nationwide as part of the Consumer Electronics Association’s “National 3D Demo Days” taking place Sept. 10-12.

“Our 3D broadcast will bring every serve, volley and passing shot to life in viewers’ living rooms, giving them a completely different perspective on the game,” said Derek Chang, executive VP of Content Strategy and Development for DirecTV.
