ESPN shooting with 3D TV, but will it score?

If three dimensional television is just a passing fad, then clearly no one told ESPN.

The all sports cable network will implement 3D technology with a new sports channel, set to premiere this year. The first 3D game will be the FIFA World Cup in June.

Would you watch your sports if they were in glorious 3D? If anything, it would make watching soccer tolerable.

Well, if there's no programming, there's no reason to introduce and try to sell sets, right? The industry analysis I saw recently indicated that 3D HDTVs would be rolled out at a much faster pace than HDTV was 10 years ago, because it doesn't require big changes to 2D HDTVs--multiple sets in different series from the major manufacturers in 2010, at fairly small price premiums over comparable 2009 series; instead of one or two sets each at fantastically high prices in the late 1990s.
