Need the perfect Valentine’s gift? If you have DirecTV, it could be a very special holiday for that very special 3D fan in your life.
After months of waiting and wondering when the previously announced Sony, Discovery and IMAX 3D network would launch, we have a date. The three superpowers now say that 3net, the trio’s new network, will launch on DirecTV in the U.S. on February 13, 2011.
Subscribers can expect 3net to go live that night at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on channel 107.
The channel will kick off with one-hour original programs “China Revealed” and “Forgotten Planet.” Then, viewers will be treated to the 3D TV premiere of “Into the Deep 3D.”
From there, the network promises 3D premieres every single night at 9:00 p.m. (EST), throughout the month of February. See below for the network’s official description of premiere night programming, as well as a network promo.
