The London 2012 Olympic Games are destined to be the first broadcast in live HD 3D. The announcement comes via partnership with Panasonic, the International Olympic Committee, and the Olympic Broadcasting Service. The OBS expects to produce over 200 hours of 3D footage covering all of the major events like the opening and closing ceremonies, gymnastics, diving, swimming, and athletics

I might have to get cable for two weeks (or a month if they won't let me do that)... I think it'd totally be worth it.

I'll just be watching the olympics and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't watch much of it otherwise... but I like watching a handful of the sports in the olympics and I'm sure a lot of events will look pretty cool in 3D.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot... so far the only way to broadcast 3D content is in a side-by-side or over/under format. It's possible that NBC affiliates could add a 'temporary' channel to their part of the frequency bandwidth (i.e: a channel 4 could put the 3D version on 4.2 instead of their usual 4.1) but I think making that also in HD would sacrifice data bandwidth. It would still be cool to see 3D content on broadcast TV!

Thumbs up 3D Olympics on Directv

Last week Directv set aside a 3D channel for the Olympics ( channel 103, and/or possibly 105 ). It looks like a fun time for me this summer ! .

NBC has won the rights to broadcast the Olympic Games, along with Panasonic announced that in addition to having a 3D-capable set, viewers must have service with a carrier that will provide the enhanced coverage.
Panasonic announced that it would partner with the IOC and OBS to make the London 2012 Olympic Games the first ever 3D Olympic Games. Unfortunately the telecast will be aired on 24 hour tape delay, just like the HD broadcast was back in 2004.
More than 200 hours of 3D telecasts, to be produced by OBS and shown on next-day delay in the U.S., will span multiple competitions throughout the games.
