…..& some theaters.
David Hill Fox Sports TV Group chairman-CEO was answering questions about Thursday night’s first-ever live 3-D telecast of an NFL game, which is going to theaters in Los Angeles, New York and Boston which news we brought you here a few days ago.
Although enthused about 3D he sounded a warning shot to TV manufactures by stating that TV broadcasters didn`t want to get “conned" again & that they needed to show up with alot of coin. "It cost us a fortune to go to HD, but do we get a penny more from the advertisers? Do we get an extra rating point? No. Everybody benefited but the broadcasters."
However he soon returned to a more upbeat tone saying that Fox`s 3D sports reel was
