Verizon FiOS users to get first 3D NFL game
Verizon's FiOS subscribers in some parts of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island will get a chance to watch the first NFL game in 3D. The game is a preseason meeting between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots on September 2. The game, pre-game, half-time and post-game shows will all be in 3D.
In homes, users will need a 3D TV, 3D glasses and an HD set-top box to view the game in 3D. The game will be broadcast to viewers in the New York City area, including Long Island and Westchester and Rockland counties, New Jersey, Mercer County, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. At the New Meadowlands Stadium and at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, Verizon will host viewing parties. Two sports bars in New York and New England, Slate Bar in Manhattan and Snookers in Providence, RI, respectively, will also let non-subscribers view the game in 3D.
