Yankees-Mariners in 3D Coming To FiOS TV

by on ‎05-11-2010 09:51 AM

1088i0545B340AEBAF7ABWe recently told you about our plans for bringing 3D programming to FiOS TV customers, and today we’re announcing  the first step in that plan with the first-ever Major League Baseball 3D telecasts.


The YES Network – the regional cable channel of the New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets – will offer FiOS customers in the New York City area two 3D baseball games featuring the Yankees vs. the Seattle Mariners on July 10 and 11.


These games will only air in the YES Network footprint (for FiOS that means NYC, Long Island, parts of New Jersey, and Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties).  You’ll need an HD set-top box, a 3D TV set and those 3D glasses that came with the set when you bought it.


This is just the start.  We’re committed to offer FiOS TV customers a high-quality TV experience with the best programming available, and 3D is no different.  We’re developing a formal 3D offering that will be available in time for the winter holiday shopping season, when 3D television sales are expected to spike. 


New York City area FiOS TV customers can see what’s on tap if you get your 3D TV before mid-July or find a friend or neighbor who just bought one.  We’re certain that watching baseball in 3D on FiOS TV will make you feel like you’re sitting behind home plate.
