You need to run out and buy a 3D TV to enjoy it. But it's got great coverage for something nobody has yet....
The Canadian-first broadcast will be available free to Bell TV subscribers on Channel 1933 (satellite TV) and on Channel 1208 (Fibe TV). Shaw Direct subscribers can tune to Channel 233/333 (Classic/Advanced) along with those with Telus Optik TV (656), Telus Satellite TV (1933) and Videotron (800).
didn't it was the same thing for HD TV back in time?
Exactly(Big misconception), The glasses are like sunglasses & the picture is very clear and sharp, with the sound to boot, a wild experience. The first thing I thought of in the test was, this is going to be huge for sports.
Don't get me wrong I don't buy into the 3D hype either. It's cool but at the end of the day it's just a gimmick. 3D TV's are more expensive too and the actual technology is going to be so much better in the next 3-4 years once they develop a 3D technology that doesn't even require the glasses. Apparently Panasonic has been working on this for a while now. I would only get a 3D TV once it becomes perfected and basically standard on TV's cause then it will be cheap and actually worth having. I don't get how people are paying extra money for it now when the technology is going to be dated very soon. Plus re-sale value of those TV's once it does will plummet just like 720p TV's and prior all have. It's a cool thing to have but it really isn't worth the money. I'm not denying that The Dark Knight in 3D must be cool but it's not a thing I feel is worth paying extra for especially when it uses 3D glasses still.
To the people wishing 3D would just die out get a life. If you don't like it don't buy one.
