Cox Communications' customers will have access to ESPN's 3D network coverage of the Masters Tournament, Cox has announced. Masters 3D programming can be viewed on 3D-capable television sets and will be available on channel 698 at no additional cost with required service levels. Live 3D coverage will air 3:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 3-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Multiple 3D cameras will be placed strategically throughout the course at Augusta National, with a focus on the second nine. Viewers will be better able to depict the many subtleties and elevation changes of the course's grounds.

Cox is launching ESPN 3D as a full time channel on May 3.
