In February 2011, three of the world's leading media, technology and entertainment companies -- Discovery Communications, Sony Corporation and IMAX Corporation -- launched the first 24/7 fully programmed, general entertainment 3D television network in the U.S.
The partnership brings together three leaders with an extraordinary collection of award-winning 3D content, technology expertise, television distribution and operational strength to deliver the highest quality in-home 3D viewing experience to television audiences.
The network features high-quality premium content from genres that are most appealing in 3D, including natural history, space, exploration, adventure, engineering, science and technology and motion pictures from Discovery, Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. ("Sony Pictures Entertainment"), IMAX and other third-party providers.
Programming includes original native 3D programs ABANDONED PLANET, AFRICA IN 3D, CHINA and JEWELS OF THE WORLD, as well as exclusive U.S. premieres from each of the joint venture partners: ATTACK OF THE GIANT JELLYFISH and THE HAUNTED from Discovery; INTO THE DEEP and MAGNIFICENT DESOLATION: WALKING ON THE MOON from IMAX, and CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS and MONSTER HOUSE from Sony.
3net is currently available on DIRECTV channel 107.
