Following recent news from service providers such as Comcast, Cablevision Systems and DirecTV about initial 3DTV service trials and rollouts, Verizon Communications confirmed on its public relations blog that it is "committed to having a 3D offering later this year, surely in time for the holiday tech buying season..."
Verizon's post came about a week after Comcast said it would offer some coverage of the Masters golf tournament early next month in 3D. Comcast plans to make the 3D content available to other cable TV companies, but not telco TV or satellite TV providers who compete with Comcast.
The Verizon blog said the company is developing its 3D strategy and looking at various options. AT&T also reportedly has been looking into 3DTV, and it seems like service providers overall are ready to take the plunge into this new service realm regardless of how many (or how few) 3DTVs actually have made their way into consumer living rooms.
