NTT announced today that they will be broadcasting a Hanshin Tigers game against the Yakult Swallows at Koshien Stadium on 7/8 in 3D through their Hikari TV (ひかりTV) service.

The game will be broadcast using Panasonic's 3D TV cameras.  Mainichi Broadcasting will be handling the technical aspects of the broadcast.

Note: DirecTV announced earlier in the year that they will be broadcasting two Yankees vs Mariners games in 3D on July 10 and July 11.  Wonder if NTT selected July 8th in order to "one-up" DirecTV.
