Cablevision, MSG ready to drop the puck in 3D

Tools

There's good news for hockey fans who, even with giant flat screen TVs can't seem to pick up the puck during televised hockey. Cablevision will be broadcasting next Wednesday's brawl--err, hockey game--between the Rangers and Islanders in 3D on the MSG HD Network.

This story, though, leans somewhat heavily to the bad-news-strings-attached side. To watch the game you must be a Cablevision Optimum Rewards customer with a subscription to MSG HD since the game is being broadcast on a new 3D channel. And, of course, you need to own one of those new 3D TVs that started shipping only this month. Oh, and you need a Scientific-Atlanta (Cisco) set-top because only those will be 3D-ready in time. And, of course, you'll need a pair of those silly and expensive 3D glasses.
