The Mariners, their broadcast partner, Fox Sports Northwest and
DIRECTV are partnering for the broadcasts. The games Saturday night
and Sunday are being shown in 3D and also broadcast on the Yankees’
partner, YES Network, and DIRECTV’s specific 3D channel.
Chris Long with DIRECTV says the idea of 3D broadcasts was first
kicked around a few years ago, but the plans for these specific
broadcasts started six months ago. Long says the hope in the future
is to do a few broadcasts per week and expand to mediums such as
concerts and other sporting events.
The Mariners set up public viewing areas around Safeco Field for
fans to experience the telecasts.
