AMG to become first 3-D network
Kerner to offer stereo technology for viewers

The seeds of the nation`s first 3-D broadcast network have been planted, repping a small step for television, but a giant leap for 3-D.
Signet Intl. Holdings, a publicly traded company led by former NBC and PBS exec Tom Donaldson and boxing promoter Ernie Letiziano, is buying AMG TV, a modestly sized net that feeds syndicated programs to some 200 terrestrial station affiliates, some of them carrying programming only part of the day.
