I always wondered what seeing a college band in 3-D would be like, and thanks to FOX will have that opportunity! FOX will be airing the BCS Bowl Games this year in 3-D at various movie theaters throughout the country. Via USA Today....
Via technology that's rattled around since the Eisenhower era, next month college football is coming to theaters. Fox will announce today plans to show 3-D coverage of the Bowl Championship Series live in theaters.Oooooh! The Daytona 500 too!? While I think the possibilities with the technology are through the roof, I have a feeling that the first run of 3-D events will be like how playing a computer game used to be on a Commodore 64. Hopefully I'm wrong though, and maybe I can sneak into one of these theaters to check it out. Anyone know someone who works at a Magic Johnson Theater?
And Fox Sports Chairman David Hill says Fox hopes to let theatergoers use 3-D glasses to watch February's NASCAR Daytona 500.
Hill says sports in 3-D is "fabulous," and high-def TV "has just been a steppingstone" to get to 3-D. But even though TV sets already being sold are 3-D-ready, he says don't expect TV networks to lead the way.
