Has anyone tried out the DirecTV 3D video on demand title you can download? You can queue it up here:


Menu-->On Demand-->Channels on Demand-->Browse by Channel-->1002 3DTest-->All-->CES_3D_Panasonic_C_2010


Really cool stuff to demo. I'm hoping some of the documentaries/sports will be appearing on DirecTV's upcoming n3D channel.


Movie Trailer - Avatar

Concert - Dave Matthews Band (inconcert 3D)

Documentary - some nature/ocean scenes + ballerinas (?!)

Movie Trailer - Toy Story 3

Sports - BMX, outdoor hockey, Mich vs Ohio St. football, soccer, tennis

Movie Trailer - Alice in Wonderland

Documentary - Wild Ocean


I'm using a C7000 Sammy plasma to view the material and, overall, I'm impressed.


Some of the scenes in the 1st documentary were breathtaking. The sports footage clips were short, but awesome. I'm pumped up to watch some college FB in 3D! I know we'll get some college bball and fb games in 3D this season (including the BCS title game).

As posted on other sites, the 3D VOD can't seem to be accessed by all. Not sure if it's receiver or location related. Thanks for the instructions though...hopefully it will eventually show up.

Hmmm... it shows up on HR-21 via On Demand (1002-2 3D Test Channel 2). Odd that D* is making this region-specific!

The (hidden) VOD title and n3D channel are free -- the channel is scheduled to come online by the end of the month. It's going to be one of four free 3D channels (need to have HD package and H21/HR21 and above). ESPN3D started broadcasting June 11 with the World Cup.


DirecTV has the following info...

The channels will include:

Channel 103 n3D Powered by Panasonic

Channel 104 DIRECTV Cinema in 3D (Pay Per View)

Channel 105 DIRECTV on DEMAND in 3D1

Channel 106 ESPN 3D


N3D is DIRECTV's new 24/7 3D channel powered by Panasonic. Launching in June, the channel will deliver the best 3D shows, movies and sports from AEG/AEG Digital Media, CBS, Fox Sports/FSN, Golden Boy Promotions, HDNet, MTV, NBC Universal and Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.

When day does the N3D channel officially start up? I've heard at the end of the month. Then end of June or July? There are only a couple of more days in June, so if it's starting at the end of June, then I would say any day now.

D* usually makes channel additions on Wednesday. So I'll be checking my guide on June 30th!


It has to be up by July 3rd to televise the 1st 3D NASCAR race.

I hope I can at least record stuff to view after I get my Mits adapter. W/out the adapter all I see is the warning about non-compatible TV.
