The concept is certainly being pushed.
The National Football League (NFL) announced on Monday that it will provide the first live, digital 3D broadcast of a pro football game on Dec. 4 to audiences at theaters in three cities.
The game between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders will be shot and transmitted by 3ality Digital, and produced and screened by RealD in theater in Boston, Hollywood and New York.
“Just as high-definition broadcasts have enhanced the home viewing experience in recent years, digital 3D broadcasts will set a new broadcast standard in the months and years to come,” the league and its partners said in a statement.
“The upcoming NFL game will demonstrate the unprecedented picture quality viewers will soon be able to enjoy in their homes.”
