Samsung goes stereoscopic rental mental
3D VoD service coming to Blighty
Samsung is worried about the lack of 3D content available to showcase its 3D TVs and Blu-ray players, and is to launch a 3D video-on-demand service to keep its customers stocked up with stereoscopic stuff.
The service - the first of its kind, anywhere, claimed Samsung - will go live in Korea before the end of June, with roll-outs in Europe and the US to follow.
Exactly what content will be offered isn't clear, but screenshots of the Korean offering show at least some big-name movies will be available to download.
Samsung has long pitched Dreamworks Animation movies - offering free BDs with its 3D kit, for example - so it's no surprise that the likes of MegaMind will be punted through the VoD channel.
We'll bring you news of pricing and UK availability when we get it. ®
Neophobes - the lot of you!
You do realise that you've all turned into your grandparents, don't you? (Apparently skipping the parent generation entirely).
It's 3D! In the home! Woo! :D
Paris, because I don't have such a need to be above the masses that I can't appreciate what looks nice.
I won't be able to watch a 3D TV at all (having one eye considerably weaker than the other) so every new 3D service or device is another step closer to me being part of a disabled underclass.
What is the point!?
Who actually wants a headache inducing TV in their living room ?
CES has finished - when will new sets be arriving which will showcase innovations presented in January. The industry seems to be pre-announcing proudcts and ideas all the time, where is the delivery ?
3D - not a reason to upgrade a 1st gen HD TV.
Still waiting for everything to be broadcast in HD and don't care much for pseudo 3d TV thanks...
