Default DirecTV's n|3D channel

Some pretty good stuff for DirecTV customers. For those curious, here is a list of the 3D shows that I've recorded to my DVR from the n|3D channel, which AFAIK is every show except for golf and music that the channel has shown so far.
  • The Universe
  • Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs
  • S.O.S. Planet
  • Encounter in the Third Dimension
  • African Adventure: Safari in the Okavango
  • Wild Safari: A South African Adventure

As I mentioned I've also seen the channel broadcast 3D golf and musical performances.

Not bad for one channel this early in the development of 3DTV.

Yes, indeed. I am seriously considering getting DirecTV. I just cancelled DISH ( what a fun 2-year ride that was ! ), and am currently using my local Mediacom for service. We will be purchasing a new home and moving out of state in a couple of months, and I think I will order DirecTV when we do. Keep us posted on the programming !

Not entirely true. I'm having trouble viewing content on this channel that is broadcast in 720p. I keep getting the error message that "my tv doesn't support this resolution". If it is in 1080i it's no problem. I'm also using a Sony soundbar which supports 3d. On channel 104 I get the error message "your tv doesn't support 1080/24p. Bottom line it's a DTV software issue and their tech support guys are clueless.
