Comcast Broadcasting Masters Tournament in 3D

Paul Lilly

With Tiger Woods making his comeback, it would be hard for another headline to steal the thunder from this year's Master Tournament, but Comcast is trying to do just that. The cable company has begun airing portions of the tournament in 3D.

"The 3D experience gives viewers a player's perspective of Augusta National, like they're looking through a window onto one of the most beautiful and scenic venues in the world," Comcast senior VP Derek Harrar said in a press statement. "We can't imagine a better setting than the Masters Tournament to give a glimpse of the future of 3D television."

The remaining 3D schedule breaks down like this:

  • April 8 and 9: (4-6PM ET) - Holes 14, 16, and 18 with rotating coverage of holes 10 through 13 and 17
  • April 10 and 11: (5-7PM ET) - Holes 14, 16, and 18 with rotating coverage of holes 10 through 13 and 17
Viewers must own a 3D-capable television and glasses, and will need to find out if their cable provider carries a separate 3D channel. Alternately, Comcast is also making available a live stream for 3D capable computers.
