News Summary: FIFA weighs scrapping 3-D World Cup broadcasts after ESPN abandoned format

Associated Press

3-D FADING: FIFA is considering scrapping 3-D broadcasts of the next World Cup, saying ESPN's decision to abandon the format was another setback for the technology.

BACK STORY: The 2010 World Cup in South Africa was the first to be broadcast in 3-D, with 25 of the 64 matches screened in the format. But demand for 3-D television sets doesn't appear to have taken off globally.

NEXT STEP: FIFA sent questionnaires to rights holders to assess their interest in 3-D coverage for its showpiece tournament in Brazil next year.
