(AP) MUST SEE 3-D: DirecTV Inc. wants to take the lead in offering 3-D TV. The satellite TV company sees 3-D as its competitive edge against other subscription TV companies. In June, DirecTV will debut ESPN 3D and three of its own 3-D channels.
THE CHALLENGE: Content produced in 3-D remains limited, and consumers still have to adopt 3-D TV sets more widely. There's also the matter of viewers getting used to wearing 3-D glasses when they're watching shows at home.
THE STRATEGY: DirecTV has to get exclusive 3-D content to stay ahead of its cable TV rivals, which also are ramping up 3-D.
