I agree it may not be the best, but if you have a 3d tv why would you not watch the games in 3d. We are watching history in the making. Sports and
3d is like peanut butter and jelly. It is a big investment for such a small audience. We need to be the ambassadors for this technology so that it does not die!

We need to get ESPN to change their format to 1080i SbS so people who are only interested in 3D sports don't demo it and see it looks like crap and then think that this is the best you can get so they don't buy a 3DTV.

It is important that the networks understand that, unlike regular HDTV, there are huge quality differences in 3D; and we won't watch crap like 1/2 720p and movies like "Clash of the Titans" (HBO). Otherwise, this new technology could actually die!

Right, I've showed a couple of friends a few of the ESPN CF games I've recorded in 3D and after 10 minutes they both told me to turn it off as neither thought it looked good at all. Popped in a 3D blu-ray and they were wowed!

720 1080...if your eyes are that sharp that you can really notice a differance between the two.All the time .well god bless you guys...480 to 720 1080 ok i see the diff.But 720 to 1080 not so much..Im old and my eyes love 720 1080 ...its all good ..

Did you watch the tennis coverage this year at the US Open? Did you watch the coverage of the golf? Thats how live 3d sports should look. ESPN is doing a crappy job with their effort, even though it is an effort.

I sent feedback to ESPN here:

Actually, you want 1080i Over/Under for the best PQ.

SbS would be great for owners of the 2010 Mits sets since they wouldn't need to use the 3D-A1 (there TVs will accept SbS but not TnB).

I would prefer all SbS for uniformity's sake.

I wear contacts to correct my vision to 20/20. I don't know why any person into HDTV/3DTV wouldn't have 20/20 vision, corrected or otherwise. The difference between 720p and 1080p sometimes isn't very drastic (especially with Comcast's over-compression) but when in 3D the difference between 1280x360 per eye and 960x1080 is huge! 1280x360 is basically standard definition from a # of pixels standpoint whereas 960x1080 is actually an HD resolution (higher than 720p).

Yep, I agree with the quality issue... Watching the Miami game right now and everything looks kind of grainy when i sit closer to my TV, or my normal 3-D viewing position.. I sit about 6-7' away on my Samsung PN58C8000 and about 10-11' away for regular TV viewing.. But when you sit in normal TV viewing position for 2D, the 3-D players are too small and I cant even see whats going on.

I like the concept and it def is nice, I'd watch the whole game in 3D if they would just bump up the resolution like the other Directv 3D channels... They all look fine

Does any one know when ESPN 3d will be available on time warner. They struck a deal for it on Sept 2nd Nd ive called 8-9 times without anything but "who knows" from the tech people. Anyone out there know

Why did they broadcast the Ohio - Indiana game when they even had top 25 battles they could of chosen from?

Agreed, but I think they are making their game decisions based on regional decisions and stadiums that lend a hand to a good 3D experience... I could be way off base, but it seems like they don't want to travel far between weeks...

Yup, that's because the 3D cameras are so heavy, they can't afford the extra gas.

The sweater vest is a little more three dimensional in 3D. I was hoping they would show Les and his hat as he is trying to read a clock.

A 3D shot of the veins on Urban Myers neck after we faked the field goal to get the first down would have also been nice.

I missed the game due to travel.
Surprised. No one talked about the OSU vs Wis game in 3d.

I turned it off and watched it in just HD.
Im sick of the crap picture, not that their 720 hd is much better.

Send ESPN a message telling them you want them to switch to 1080i SbS because the quality of 720p TnB is is so subpar you will not be watching until they switch.

If you dvr'd the game, look at the beginning of the 2nd period and you'll see good closeups of all the 3D cameras used during the game. They made a statement that the "portable/roving" 3D camera weighed about 50 pounds, but now it weighs only 20 pounds.

BTW-this was the best broadcast yet. ESPN is getting better, even in 720p.

This was my first in-home game I've seen with ESPN-3D. It was impressive watching in the dark. However, after the novelty wore off, I switched back to 2d.

I finally got to see my very first taste of college football in 3D. I just got done watching MNF, it was Tennessee and Jacksonville. After that game was over, I checked n3D, just to see what was on. To my surprise, they were showing a repeat of a Miami @ Clemson college football game. When I had switched over to that channel, there was only about 4 minutes left in the game. I quickly grabbed my 3D glasses and watched the last 4 minutes.


The first thing I have to say about it, is WHERE THE HECK DID ALL THE RESOLUTION GO?

Man, seriously, watching it in 3D, it seems like it's standard definition. It really doesn't look like High Def at all.

The other issue I had, was that either something was wrong with my Samsung glasses, or the emitter built into my TV, or something was wrong with this rebroadcast, because on certain camera angles, it just seemed like the view was wrong. I thought for sure that the sync was on the wrong eye. So, I went into my Samsung menu and clicked on picture correction, but that just made it worse, so I came to the conclusion that it was on the right eye, but just something was either wrong with my glasses, or the broadcast was screwed up.

When the game was over, it showed this Direct TV 3D logo, and that seemed perfectly fine. Also, the eye thing was only a problem with certain camera angles, so maybe it was something with the broadcast. Some of the camera angles were perfectly fine.


Still, the resolution was a joke. This does not look like High Definition at all. I'm almost embarrased to invite people over to see a college football game, because while the game might be in 3D, and that's pretty cool, the problem is, that it's like going back to standard definition because the resolution is so low. I'm not sure the tradeoff is worth it for more than 20 minutes of just wanting to see what it's like in 3D.

I watched a bunch of World Cup Soccer, and that also didn't really seem to be high-def to me. This college football though, seems worse to me for some reason.

I'd rather they do 1080i TnB because I think that preserves more of the resolution. I'm not sure what they are doing now, and why it's coming out looking so lackluster, but they better do something, because this is embarrassing. The year is 2010, and at this point, I don't want to go back to standard definition. While the 3D is a really cool viewpoint, and some of the camera angles are pretty amazing, without the HD visual quality, it just ain't worth it. ESPN needs to figure out another way to do this.

Their cameras appear to be getting beat up--one now has ghosts; one now is dimmer; and one appears to be to go out of alignment (that's what you referenced).
