Anyone have a 3D-TV and NHL Network? The game against the Leafs and Montreal is being broadcast live in 3D on the NHL Network (http://www.nhl.com/i...s.htm?id=546012).

Any reviews of how it looks?

Interesting... I wonder how that would look.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Not in 3D for me. Wonder if you need a special receiver.

Awesome concept, but I have to wonder if only a handful of people (10 maybe, only semi-exaggerating) actually have everthing they need to see the game in 3D.

More than a handful have 3D TV's, maybe two handfuls...

But how many of them actually know how to get it up and running?

3D as it's being done now is dead in the water. Maybe when the screens that don't require glasses hit consumer level pricing it'll catch on, but as is it's just too expensive and no one wants to wear the glasses when it comes down to it.

I've been watching NHL games in 3D for years now.

All it takes is a bottle of Smirnoff and narcotics. ;)

My girlfriend's family has a 3D-tv and what little that is presented in 3D is gorgeous. They don't have NHL network though, so I can't say how hockey would look.

I completely agree. The human eye doesn't work the way so called 3D looks. It looks like a bunch of flat plastic transluscent 2-d cutouts, or some old viewmaster crap in HD. In fact it sucks compared to HD, for example, watching Avatar in HD is far more detailed and looks more realistic than that 2-D 3D crap, you cant stare at the foreground things (which look flat) without noticing that the background becomes kind of lost, or blurry in some cases.

People are going to be even more pissed when they find out they bought 3D tvs for alot of money and wasted tons on glasses, that will be obsolete when the Yamaha, and/or Panasonic come out with thei GLASSLESS 3D tvs in 2011. Even then, it will become obsolete IMHO. HD is just catching on, and it looks more real. Even if 3d were good, it would have a hard time catching on when people just bought HDTV's.

I don't get all the hate about 3D. It's not the '50s "jump out at you" 3D, it's an immersive environment, at least when done right (ala Avatar). That kind of 3D is awesome and I think everything should be broadcast like that before too long, it paves the way for holographic viewing. It just adds so much depth to everything.

That being said, it won't catch on until the glasses-less TVs come out next year and even then until they go down in price and more stuff is offered in 3D.

NOW THERE YOU SAID IT! i was listening to a tech show on the radio and they were saying that true lifelike 3d through screenless holographic tv setups are about 7-8 years away and to not waste your money on this interim 3d stuff either. If that looked real, that would be amazing! I wonder how the older games would translate into holographic... imagine seeing the wings greatest games boxset in holographic 3d like theyre in the room with you, damn!

DS Cherry's suits in 3D? I just had a shiver. The Heritage Classic between Montreal and Calgary on 20/02/2011 will also be in 3D.
