Beginning this month, DISH Network is giving customers access to a variety of 3D movies including “Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore,” “The Last Airbender,” “A Christmas Carol” and “Step Up 3D.” Additional titles coming in January include “Despicable Me,” “Shrek Forever After,” and “Saw: The Final Chapter.” These movies will be delivered in up to 1080p resolution.
To celebrate the introduction of 3D programming and the wide variety of on demand selections available through its DISH Cinema platform, DISH Network is hosting a “Home for the Holidays Sweepstakes” through Dec. 31. Each time a DISH Network customer rents a qualifying movie or event from DISH Cinema, they are automatically entered into a drawing to win prizes like a Sony 46-inch LED 3DTV, Sony Portable Satellite Navigation Systems, Sony Webbie HD(TM) Cameras, FOX Family Prize Packs and more.
“DISH Network is giving customers the ability to experience the power of 3D from home with a variety of popular movies available on DISH Cinema,” said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “Our customers expect engaging video experiences, and we look forward to bringing them additional 3D titles as we expand our DISH Cinema platform.”
The obvious “Fine Print”
To enjoy DISH Network’s 3D movie selections, customers will need a 3D television set with compatible 3D glasses and a DISH Network ViP 922 HD DVR. DISH Network’s 3D movies range in price from $5.99-$7.99 and can be ordered through the DISH Cinema interface by pressing “Menu” then “DISH On Demand,” or by tuning to DISH Network Ch. 1 or 501.
