Comcast, DirecTV serve U.S. Open in 3D


Comcast  (Nasdaq: CMCSA) and DirecTV (Nasdaq: DTV) are the only pay TV providers that plan to deliver U.S. Open Tennis coverage in 3D, but CBS is talking other affiliates about carrying the 3D feed.

CBS said Tuesday that it was teaming up with Panasonic to produce 3D coverage from the tennis championship for the second year in a row. While ESPN and the Tennis Channel will also distribute live matches from Flushing, N.Y., the cable networks aren't producing any matches in 3D.

DirecTV plans to carry 3D images from the U.S. Open on n3D, its dedicated 3D channel, while Comcast will distribute 3D matches on Xfinity 3D.
