Last week Comcast launched a dedicated 3D channel called Xfinity 3D, starting with Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic and an MTV World Stage concert featuring Kings of Leon. Comcast says the 3D channel will offer more than a dozen movies, original 3D programing, as well as more sports and music events.
Xfinity 3D’s original programming will offer niche content such as Chinese dragon dancing and rhythmic gymnastics. Documentary subjects include African safaris, haunted castles, the ocean, the sun, and the dinosaur age.
Last month Comcast launched HBO 3D On Demand with movies such as Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Monsters vs. Aliens and Coraline available to customers a la carte.
“Whether it is a concert, sporting event or movie, Xfinity 3D brings the best seats in the house right to customers’ living rooms,” said Marcien Jenckes, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Video Services for Comcast. “
