YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc., China’s leading national Pay-Per-View (PPV) and Video On Demand (VOD) platform, announced today that it has signed a distribution deal with 3net, the leading U.S. 3D television channel and global production studio, for Transactional Video On Demand (TVOD) and Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) in China.

In connection with this deal, YOU On Demand will be launching a separate 3D SVOD package this summer. Among the titles that will be available are “African Wild,” which takes viewers on a journey into the secret world of Africa’s largest and most dangerous animals and “Feeding Time,” a behind the scenes look at the fussy eating habits and individual personalities of some of the world’s most adored and iconic creatures.

This is such an important time to launch 3D content, as it is a major initiative for our cable partners,” said Shane McMahon, Chairman and CEO of YOU On Demand. “We share 3net’s mission of bringing viewers the highest quality and most immersive in-home 3D viewing experience.”
