Virgin hits 3D screens with fresh range of flicks
No need to splash out
It's all very well having a 3D TV and a service to match, but content can be hard to come by. Virgin Media is addressing this, with today's revelation of a new 3D movie line-up available at no extra cost.
The company has inked deals with Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney, to supply 3D films for its Virgin Media 3D On Demand service. Content such as Jackass 3D and Tron: Legacy will appear regularly from this month.
Customers can access them without the need for additional fees too, as long as they have a V HD/V+ HD box or Virgin Media powered by TiVo service.
Oh and a 3D telly is rather essential as well. ®
£3000 on a new tele for...
Jackass 3D and Tron: Legacy
... well that was money well spent then wasn't it!
who said anything about free?
what it does say is "at no extra cost"...
no: a negative used to express dissent, denial, or refusal, as in response to a question or request
Extra: beyond or more than what is usual, expected, or necessary; additional
Cost: The price paid to acquire, produce, accomplish, or maintain anything
as in, a on demand move will cost £x.xx but a £D version of that move will cost the same !
No, they won't be free - they'll appear in the 'movies on demand' line up and cost £x for you to view, where £x is, obviously, more than it would cost for the "I don't want to look like a nob by wearing those stupid glasses" version.
