The upcoming service, Google Fiber TV, can offer now 3D channels for its customers, according to an announcement made by the company, on Thursday. For an extra cost of $5 per month you can watch in 3D the following TV channels: ESPN3D and 3net (which can be found on channel 338). More channel will be available soon.
If you have a Gigabit + TV Plan subscription you will can watch 3net for no extra cost. This channel provides entertainment, movies, documentaries, cooking TV shows, lifestyle and many more. For ESPN3D sports network you need to call Google Fiber. The Gigabit + TV Plan’s cost is $120 per month.
To watch the 3D channels from Google you will need to own a 3D TV and 3D glasses. Besides that you have to live in one of these two cities: Kansas City, Missouri or Kansas City, Kansas. The service will be available in other two cities in Missouri and many others in Kansas, this year. This happens because the feature is in beta mode.
ESPN3D is offered by other networks, too, like: Time Warner Cable (for extra $10) Comcast, Verizon, DirecTV and many more. These last networks offer the channel at no additional cost.
Although the 3D channels market is small in this moment, it is growing fast and not so far in the future it might become the normal.
According to Larry Yang, GFTV Head of Product Management said in a blog post that Google is committed to make the service “better and better”.
If you have the necessary 3D technology and extra $5 to spend per month, Google Fiber TV 3D is what you need.
