3net 3D programs to air on Comcast Xfinity TV

The 3D television network 3net will start airing on Comcast Xfinity TV networks this Monday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. ET, when 3net premieres the original series Storm Surfers, A Year in Africa, and NASCAR: The IMAX Experience. Those shows will have encore presentations on Jan. 31, Feb. 2, and Feb. 3. Xfinity TV subscribers will also be able to get 3net content On Demand. 3net says new shows will air on Mondays, with the original series “Forgotten Planet” starting on Feb. 4. To view the 3D shows, subscribers will need an HDMI-connected 3D TV, 3D glasses, supporting set-top-box, and Xfinity TV service with HD package. Comcast does not charge extra for the 3D service on Xfinity TV.

3net is a joint venture between Sony, Discovery Communications and IMAX. The network first launched on DIRECTV in Feb. 2011. Last month, Service Electric Cablevision became the first cable provider to host the channel, making it available for customers with 3D HDTVs in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The network is also carried on Google Fiber and Netflix.

In October 2012, the joint venture announced 3net Studios, a production studio focused on creating native 3D 4K, 2D 4K, 3D 2K, and 3D/2D HD content.
