Dish Network is throwing its hat into the 3D ring with the launch of a handful of on-demand movies in the format.
Starting this month, Dish will offer access to 3D movies including Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, The Last Airbender, A Christmas Carol and Step Up 3D. Additional titles to come in January include Despicable Me, Shrek Forever After and Saw: The Final Chapter.
Dish follows satellite rival DirecTV, which was first to jump into 3D
earlier this year in hopes of establishing a lead in the new format.
DirecTV offers n3D, its own 24-hour channel sponsored by Panasonic, as
well as the event-based ESPN 3D channel and 3D movies. Other providers
that offer 3D VOD include Comcast, Verizon FiOS TV, Time Warner Cable
and AT&T U-verse TV.
