ESPN 3D Shut Down Announced

ESPN is shuttering its 3D television network ESPN 3D by the end of the year because 3D TVs aren't as popular as they had hoped.

"Due to limited viewer adoption of 3D services to the home, ESPN is discontinuing ESPN 3D," an ESPN spokesperson wrote to Mashable, adding that ESPN "will be ready to provide the service to fans if or when 3D does take off." Future sales of 3D TVs will stay with Blu-ray disks and video on demand as drivers, at least as long as good glasses-free autostereosocopic sets are not available.

The stereoscopic 3DTV market is nevertheless stronger than ever, with 5.7 sets sold in the USA this year, a 39% increase from 2012.
