Seeing ‘Starz’ … In A Good Way

I was ticked when AT&T U-Verse recently removed ESPN3D from its programming block.

Oh … I was ticked and still am, in fact.

That channel was the main reason I spent a few hundred more bucks to get a 3DTV, after all.

The company’s reasoning was that there were not enough subscribers to the $10 per month channel. I still feel I should have had the choice, however, even for another $5.

I really miss the channel now with the start of the college football season, when ESPN airs a few select games in 3D.

But I have to move on, as I am not about to switch providers again … and make my poor wife dizzy with more channel changes.

So, I’ll suck it up with AT&T U-Verse for a while.

They made the decision a little easier the last couple of days by adding STARZ 3D to its slate.

There are only four movies available, including The Christmas Carol and Toy Story 3.

I saw the former  and it was terrific, and I look forward to viewing the latter as I heard it was the best of the trio.

Like any customer though, I am NEVER satisfied, however.

Get me more “free” 3D movies to watch and find a way to get 3D sports programming too.


For now, though, I’ll just say this:

I’m glad STARZ is in my U-Verse.

I might need to copyright that.

Well, just my opinion, but the whole 3D thing is overrated. When I see a 3D movie, I avoid it. The glasses give me a headache. And if it’s a scary movie, the last thing I want is it coming into the room with me. LOL!
