CULVER CITY, Calif., Aug. 17, 2011 -- 3net, the joint venture 24/7 3D network from Sony, Discovery and IMAX, and innovative content producer Red Bull Media House North America (RBMH NA), have partnered to bring Red Bull's compelling programming derived from its strong brand, sports and culture events, and athletes to U.S. television audiences in 3D for the first time ever. The partnership was announced today by Tom Cosgrove, President and CEO of 3net and Werner Brell, Red Bull Media House North America.

"We are excited about partnering with Red Bull Media House North America to bring Red Bull's innovative long-form and short-form 3D content to audiences in the U.S. for the first time," said Cosgrove.

Launched in 2001, RED BULL RAMPAGE brings the creative, unrestricted ethos of freeride mountain biking to the contest arena while staying true to the sport's core ideals. The rugged, natural downhill terrain of remote Utah is enhanced by manmade obstacles created over the course of a month and constructed to test the nerves of the world's best riders. The now legendary invitation-only contest features the jaw-dropping skills of the event's competitors captured in stunning, native 3D for the first time in the event's history. In addition to the world 3D premiere of RED BULL RAMPAGE, 3net will also premiere RBMH NA's original short-form 3D content developed around the 2010 US Open of Surfing.
