DirecTV to launch 3D HDTV channel at CES?

DirecTV is on the verge of becoming the first US TV provider to roll out an HD resolution, entirely 3D channel, a purported leak argued on Monday. Helped by a new satellite just launching now, the carrier is expected to unveil the channel at CES early next month and carry a variety of movies, sports and general programming whose sole rule is that it comes in 3D. The network would appear in time to accommodate the anticipated deluge of 3D-capable TVs at CES and would support the 3D display methods used by most if not all of these sets.

The transition would reportedly be relatively simple for viewers, according to the HDGuru source. While it will often need a new TV and 3D glasses, at least some if not most of DirecTV's HDTV receiver boxes may be upgradeable to 3D through a free firmware upgrade instead of being replaced.

It's not known if the satellite firm will have any demos if it showcases a 3D channel in January, but regular access wouldn't go live until the necessary satellite is completely ready, in March.
