DirectTV First to Launch 3D Channel

Just two days ago (December 28th), the company blasted a new satellite into orbit, which will give DirectTV the capacity to add a 3D channel and several additional HD channels. The satellite will be fully operational by March. The new 3D-HDTV broadcast will require people to purchase a new 3D compatible HD TV, many of which will be showcased at CES 2010, 3D glasses, and probably the new soon-to-be-available HDMI 1.4 adapters. DirectTV boxes will receive a firmware upgrade, so there won’t be need to change them.

So are you willing to buy a completely new 3D HD TV and all the equipment necessary just to enjoy one channel [at the moment] in 3D? Tell us if you think it’s worth it.

‘Teen Wolf’ TV Series Cast and Plot

The original which starred Michael J. Fox as a high school student who discovers he is a werewolf, is a dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy element at the center and a romantic plot line.

The TV series will revolve around Scott McCall (Posey), a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack.

O’Brien will play Scott’s best friend who is initially dismissive of Scott’s theory that he was bitten by a wolf but then begins research on human-werewolf transformation. Reed will play a sweet new girl at school who is immediately smitten with Scott. Hoechlin will play a handsome local boy who in fact is a vicious and predatory werewolf capable of great harm.

Werewolf TV Series ‘Howl’ Coming to Fox

 

The network has started developing a television show called none other than 'Howl' which is being written by Joshua Miller and MA Fortin. It is being described as an epic family saga about warring families of werewolves in a small Alaskan town. "Alaska is a place where people disappear and now you know why," said Miller.

The script reflects the changes that are going on in the country, and "metamorphosis and constant change is the basis of werewolf mythology," Miller added. "Howl" is about "the psychology of living with change."
