ESPN Shutting Down 3D Channel At Year's End

By Mike Reynolds & Kent Gibbons On Jun 12 2013 - 2:26pm

After three years, ESPN is shutting down its 3DTV network at the end of the year and said it will distribute resources to other ESPN services.

The company, which bowed ESPN3D in June 2010, initially to bullish prospects, said there was not enough interest in the service from a consumer perspective. ESPN will close the network, which had carriage deals with six top distributors making the channel available to some 75 million households, though only a limited number of pay-TV customers actually subscribe to it.
