Google Fiber adds 3D channels to service

Late last week Google announced two channels, 3net and ESPN3D, have been added to the Google Fiber service. 3net, a joint venture between Sony, Discovery and IMAX, has been added to the Gigabit + TV package. And, for an extra $5 per month you can get ESPN3D. 3net broadcasts a wide range of 3D content including documentaries, concerts, movies and scripted series. 3net Studios also produces original content in native 3D 4K, 2D 4K, 3D 2K and both 3D/2D HD formats. ESPN3D is a 24/7 sports channel that offers 3D coverage of golf, basketball, soccer, X Games, and other sporting events.

Unfortunately, Google Fiber hasn’t expanded beyond the two Kansas City markets it launched with back in Sept. 2012. But the search giant says new markets in Kansas and Missouri are scheduled to be added.

Google Fiber is available in 3 different service plans. Gigabit + TV costs $120 for both TV and internet service (they are currently waiving the $300 setup fee). Gigabit Internet costs $70 per month for internet only (setup fee also waived). And finally a free internet service that costs $300 for set up (or $25 for 12 months).

The Gigabit + TV service currently provides a Storage Box with capacity for 500 hours of HD recordings and an expanding VOD library. The company is currently offering a free Nexus 7 Android tablet which can be used as a remote or for mobile viewing throughout your home.

Google Fiber customers can find 3net on channel 338. Subscribers need to call customer service to sign up for ESPN3D.
