UFC Goes 3D This Week; 3net Begins ‘3Day Weekends’

UFC has joined the growing list of sports organizations that have gone 3D. This Thursday’s event, broadcast live on the Versus network from Louisville, will be the company’s first 3D broadcast. It’s headlined by Diego Sanchez (seen here looking menacing) and Martin Kampmann.

The event will air in 3D on various affiliates throughout the country, most notably Comcast’s new Xfinity 3D channel. (The channel launched in late February.)

The 3D broadcast will be put together by an entirely different production team. Former WEC announcer Todd Harris will be on the 3D play-by-play team, as will Kevin Florian.

In other 3D news, the other big, all-3D network, 3net, will start something called “3net 3Day Weekends” this Friday. It will feature 3D programming premieres and the like. The first such program will be Nascar 3D: The Imax Experience, narrated by Keifer Sutherland—sounds like a treat.

At the very least the few who bought 3DTVs now have a couple of channels to tune into.
