Comcast, the nation’s largest cable provider, said on Wednesday that it intends to add ESPN 3D to its cable lineup in time for the launch of the World Cup on June 11. The match between South Africa and Mexico is expected to precede about 25 other World Cup soccer matches being covered by the ESPN 3D. Comcast said that the channel plans to offer 100 sports events in 3D on video on demand in its first year. In a statement, Comcast chief Brian Roberts said, “ESPN was a pioneer in HD, and continues to move the industry forward with the first 3-D sports network. … We delivered the first live national 3-D sports event to consumers homes earlier this year with the Masters Tournament and believe that 3-D sports will drive the adoption of this technology and continue to revolutionize how we deliver entertainment.”
