3net Marks Second Anniversary with New Original 3D Series Premieres

3net, the joint venture 24/7 3D network from Discovery, Sony and IMAX, celebrates both distribution and programming milestones as it approaches its second anniversary. Originally launched in the U.S. on February 13, 2011, in just under two years the network has seen a dramatic increase in reach, with 3net programming now available to more than 40 million U.S. households across five program distribution affiliates, including DIRECTV, Comcast, Service Electric Cablevision and Netflix.

In addition to the network's groundbreaking array of specials, concerts and one-off documentaries debuted over the past two years, the month of February also marks a programming milestone for 3net, as the network premieres its thirtieth native, original 3D series a worldwide first in the industry. 3net has benefited significantly from the rise of 3D TV adoption, with 3D televisions currently in almost one quarter of all homes in the U.S. and industry forecasts for significant further growth in 2013. By contrast, HD television had achieved low single digit household penetration at the same point in its evolutionary cycle more than a decade ago.

"With 3D televisions already in nearly 25 million U.S. households - and industry predictions of dramatic in-home 3D growth this year we celebrate our second anniversary with a continued commitment to meeting the ever-growing consumer appetite for high-quality, original 3D television content," said Tom Cosgrove, President and CEO, 3net. "We're proud to make our unique brand of immersive, original 3D programming available to more than 40 million U.S. homes, and we look forward to further growth in the in-home 3D market as more consumers embrace the format - particularly as the electronics industry continues to include 3D as a feature available in nearly all of the new television models available to consumers this year, including every UHD/4K set coming to market."

3net also recently launched 3net Studios, with an overarching mission to fuel not only the flagship U.S. channel service, but also to make the highest quality native 3D and 4K content available to consumers around the globe through a broad array of international distribution partners.
