March Madness Final Four Will Be In 3D

CBS Sports is joining up with Cinedigm Digital Cineman Corp. and LG Electronics to televise the Final Four college basketball games on April 3 and the April 5 title game from the 2010 Men’s Division I Basketball Championships in 3D.

Fully produced by CBS Sports, the 3D games will be shown in this enhanced format in 100 movie theaters nationwide, as well as on LG’s LCD HDTVs at locations throughout Lucas Oil Stadium, the 2010 venue for the Final Four.

CBS Sports executive vice president, operations and production Ken Aagaard said that there also have been conversations with cable operators and DirecTV about possibly offering the main games in 3D.

“We’re working with LG. Realistically, there are only a few places because there just aren’t that many homes with boxes to support 3D,” said Aagaard, during an interview after CBS’s annual media day supporting the basketball tournament at the network’s Manhattan headquarters. “This is another platform we can use to leverage the tournament.”

LG is the official 3D sponsor for CBS Sports’ tournament broadcasts and an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA. LG Electronics, which debuted the first 3DTVs in Korea last year, will be introducing this new feature in an extensive line of 3D-enabled LED HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players in the U.S., starting this May.
