PLAINVIEW, NY–(Jun 26, 2013) – NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), the leading enabler and provider of live and on-demand content to Internet-connected devices, today announced that its TV Everywhere Platform is behind a brand new 3D digital movie service presented by SENSIO Technologies during CE Week in New York City.

(http://www.3dgo.com), is enabled by NeuLion’s technology and is the only dedicated internet streaming 3D VOD channel offering consumers access to the best 3D experience at home in terms of quality, premium 3D content and user-friendliness.

Our 3DGO! service, with the help of NeuLion’s leading technology, gives consumers instant and reliable access to 3D movies across the US,” said Richard LaBerge, Executive Vice-President and CBDO of SENSIO. “Without NeuLion our project costs would have been higher and our time to market would have been much longer.”
