Samsung reckons it will be the first company to release a 1080p LED-backlit 3D TV in Europe.

The South Korean giant will begin shipping 3D-capable kit in Europe in March, with additional members of its existing 8 and 7 series of LED TVs and 6-series LCDs. It will also release a 3D Blu-ray player, the BD-C6900.

3D plasmas TVs will also appear come "late Spring", as will 9-series LEDs and a home theatre rig, the HT-C6930W.

Samsung said in January that its is already mass-producing 3D TVs.

All of the 3D models will feature built-in Ethernet connection and what Samsung called "wireless-ready capabilities", which essentially means they have a USB port that can take an optional dongle.

All the sets will feature Samsung's Internet@TV an online apps store, which will become the source for media player software from the History Channel, the Cartoon Network, YouTube-alike Dailymotion, Google Picasa, Lovefilm and music video site Muzu.

Samsung pledged BBC iPlayer would be supported too.

It didn't say anything about pricing, however. ®
