ESPN 3D To Cease Production By Year's End: No Demand, No Channel
Sadly, it appears that the bet won't pay off. ESPN has announced, amidst cost-cutting efforts that have impacted jobs across the company, that ESPN 3D will cease by the year's end. Without ESPN 3D around, there is effectively no hope for 3D content, and in turn, mass 3D adoption at-home. The company suggests that "strong production" couldn't help "a lack of demand from the majority of consumers," and of course, no demand means no advertising dollars.
It's a tough pill to swallow, but we aren't exactly shocked to hear it. Will any of you even miss it?
