on a related issue I emailed cox to ask when they would be providing the ESPN/3D channel. Response was:
"Cox has not reached a distribution agreement with ESPN nor Discovery to
offer ESPN 3D/3net on mutually acceptable terms. Therefore, Cox does not
have any immediate plans to offer ESPN 3D/3net at this time.
Cox continues to bring its customers other 3D content including a
regularly updated selection of both free and for rent 3D movies On
DEMAND and selected sporting events.
Over the last few months Cox has delivered to our customers the Masters,
the PGA Tournament, College Football, NHL Hockey and more. We will
continue to deliver selected movies/sports/events as the opportunities
become available from the programming distributors."
I especially liked the part about regularly updated selection of free movies; I don't think they've changed in several months (and are not very good quality). I do like the fact that HBO HD as a few 3D movies but wish they had more (and that Starz would also provide some).
