I have just finished watching "Bullproof" and was happily amazed at the quality of this native 3D production. Not only is this an excellent reality TV show, it is a proof of concept of how well 3D can be used to enhance the enjoyment of this type of programming. My hat is off to 3net for this engaging program. The team that produced this series really seems to have learned many lessons on how to shoot and edit using 3D cameras. Great depth and only minor crosstalk. I hope all upcoming shows will be so well produced.

Overall, I have been very pleased with the offerings on 3net. I believe they really out shine the shows that have been produced by n3D. The prime examples would be "Guys Big Bite" and "Guitar Center" which show a total lack of creativity on all levels. But, n3D has been improving. Now the bar is being set very high by 3net and I hope n3D will take the challenge.

I have also recently enjoyed the series "Forgotten Planet" and "America's National Parks", these series have slow pacing but great images. "High Octane" and "Experience 3D" show a better pacing as to what 3D can do for a show and now we step up to "Bullproof." Also really liked the 3D awards telecast, another 3net first and "In The Qube." Keep the great shows coming. 3net alone makes having a 3D TV pay off.

As people who have read things I've written on behalf of 3net here, you know I don't sell or spin anything.

I would encourage everyone to go to 3net.com - watch our new video and enter the contest. It will be a great experience for the winner, no doubt.

A few other answers to questions:

We will have a kids/animation/film block in place and on-air by 4th quarter of this year.

We will announce our June schedule on Monday - the largest amount of original and native 3D premiere programming in the emerging history of 3D TV.

As to those threads related to Blu Ray titles and what is best, many of you realize that the stereo issues involved when you go from "big to small" are significant. Compression and half res issues aside with the TV broadcast, the convergence correction work done by us to make theatrical/large format titles work for in-home are significant. This is not something anyone else is doing at this point for television. In short, an acquired theatrical/large format title you see on one channel is not anything like those that we provide. We run each title through Pablos at many hours to fix and correct for small format. As far as I know, no one else in the space does the same.

I had mentioned earlier that it would be great if you put on iink on the web page to allow for a sign-up for a newsletter.

Have you made any decisions in that regard?

I just watched the second show as well. I really like the show. It's nice to have another source for watching 3D movie trailers.

Excited for some of these other "reality" series that discovery seems to do so well, which apparently has continued at 3net

I was quite impressed with the debut episode of "Live Fire". It seems the production value and 3D quality are steadily improving with these series.

A few people have posted about errors in the DTV guide for this channel, I see the same thing here. Either blank, wrong or says "movie".

I PM'ed 3net here about it, no response. I also checked ZAP2IT and it's also showing the same garbage so IMHO it's coming from Discovery, I sent them a comment asking them to fix. Actually starting tomorrow at 9PM Central the guide data starts to look better.

That is very interesting. Would love to see how your content looks one day in Canada!

Do you have any plans to address the compression/half res issue?

Angry 3net channel ended by its joint venture

Very disappointed one week in with dish & a new 3d projector and the interesting channel for 3d content is closed.
Direct tv say it is the joint venture that pulled the plug and not them.

From others reporting other carriers are reporting the same thing.

On Comcast cable we have a 3d channel with many 3D shorts - probably similar to 3net. Also, if you subscribe to HBO or Starz, they have 3D On Demand movies. Current titles (change each month) are:

HBO:
Epic
Gatsby
Gravity
Hobbit
Wolverine

Starz:
Battle of the year
Frozen
Monsters University
One Direction
Great and powerful Oz
Thor Dark World

Wink Comcast 3d

I have basic comcast and I have not seen that mentioned before. That would have been a consideration but I left Dish to go direct tv for a lower bill on a costco deal.

So you are saying select movies on premium network like stars are shown in their 3d format at no extra charge?

Interesting.

3NET ceased broadcasting to all providers on August 12th. I've watched many of their programs via Comcast Cable's 3D channel, and was always impressed with the quality of the 3D...especially the pop-out sequences. The studios were also working on UHD content, so I wouldn't be surprised if they got out of the 3D business to focus their attention on future UHD broadcast offerings for satellite and cable services. I found this article quite interesting:
