"We're always listening to customers and working to make sure we're delivering the channels they want, while keeping costs down," AT&T said in a statement. "The price tag for ESPN 3D was too high, especially considering the low demand we've seen from customers. We've decided not to renew our agreement for ESPN 3D."

AT&T was charging an additional $10 per month for the U-Verse 3D Technology package, which only consisted of ESPN 3D and a few 3D movies on-demand.

In place of ESPN 3D, AT&T has added Starz's 3D VOD package, which offers four movies to subscribers of the premium network at no extra cost.
