Why no 3D channel?

Message 1 of 14

Verizon should have a 3D channel that only shows 3D movies. They currently only have a few Starz and HBO movies in 3d. I totally would pay $8.99/ month for just 3D programing. I currently have to pay for both Starz and HBO, just for 5 3D movies, which usually only stays on for about a month. I heard there is a 3D channel on Direct TV?

Verizon does carry a 3D channel...ESPN 3D...but you have to pay for it.  Also, don't forget that there are numerous 3D movies available via OnDemand (3 MUSKETEERS, TINTIN, DARKEST HOUR, IMMORTALS, HAROLD & KUMAR, PUSS 'N BOOTS among others). Each is $7.99,    True, there is a 3D channel out there called 3NET, but it's not carried by FIOS.  And since we have yet to see even CARTOON-HD, FEARNET-HD, or BBC-HD, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for FIOS to add a 3D channel.

I have the EXTREME package and it is not included.  Costs an additional $9.99 a month.

Hmmm.  Okay ESPN 3d is free to those with the Ultimate package and ridiculous overpriced at almost $10 for others.

I am seriously about to dump CRAPPY FIOS TV!  

 

http://brighthouse.com/central-florida/shop/tv/3d

 

 

Brighthouse 3D channels FREE!!!!!

 

Yet Fios Tv drops things like Anime Network and other channels others watched!  Charge more and drop stations!  I am getting so **bleep** fed up with FIOS TV I am seriously looking to drop them after Sept when my free movie channels goes away.  After all they have nothing for me anymore that I can't get on Brighthouse!

Looking at the brighthouse site pointed to they have ESPN 3d (so does verizon but only  no extra cost in Ultimate) and they have some VOD.  This does not effect beIN or any other channels that some want added.

 

I am one of those who would prefer some non-sports channels be added first.

I agree with you 100% but think of it this way, something you really like to watch, whether it is movies or sports on a specific channel. all that content was purchase by another channel that Verizon doesn't carry what would be your reaction, add 3 D channels or the channel that acquired the content you like to watch?
