NBA Finals to air in 3D

Another notable sports event is joining the 3D broadcast brigade. Nba-Finals

The NBA Finals will be shown in stereoscopic 3D by ESPN 3D this June, after broadcasting its first game using the technology last December.

It's a victory for 3D TV manufacturers, who have been trying to convince consumers that the amount of content for the sets is rising steadily. Sports events are expected to be one of the key selling points for the sets as they look to expand their installed base.

Beyond the NBA, the Masters and the World Cup have both experimented with 3D broadcasts. The NFL, though, has held back on using the technology with the Super Bowl. Fox Sports opted against it this year due to the small number of sets in homes and the added expense of shooting the game in 3D.
