I don't see this being of any quality without a tv that can render the 3D.

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).

Videotron is showing it with the red/blue glasses. It will look awful but I'll check it out since I have a pair or two at home.

I used to think that until I walked into Central Audio in Lachine & the guy put on Batman Dark Knight in 3D & I tested out, blew my mind!!!!

It's not the crappy blue/red glasses from the 50's....

Interesting, thanks for the info. Maybe I will try the Safe 3D channel.


I'm sure I will prefer the HD channel though..

Agreed.

It's dumb and adds nothing. I am not a fan.

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.

You must have been watching the LCD that generates 3D from a non-3d title, correct? Why would Dark Knight be in 3D unless the TV was forcing its own signal?

Don't know, was rendered special for 3D I guess. but that's what they were using over there to get your interest 3 months ago & I thought it looked pretty neat.

Go over, make your own opinion, it's always free to look & they might have some NFL now for tests, just thought it looked pretty good, just way to expensive now.

3D right now is not worth it, and some may say their sick of it. But 5-10 years from now, most households will own one. Then there will be something else..

Anyway, Id love to watch Saturdays game in 3DHD but I don't have the red/blue glasses, nor do I want to go out and buy a 3D TV.

I was curious because I saw the new Sharp making a somewhat decent 3D image from non-3D titles. It wasn't too bad.

I already have one in mind, don't mind the 3D hype the kids will enjoy the few movies out for it.

I'm still surprised by the amount of people that don't have HD, never mind a 3D.

I'll be interested to hear feedback from any of you guys that watch it in 3D though.

3D tv with glasses is going to be old and short lived. 3DTV with no glasses is on the verge of hitting the market and will make it obsolete

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.

Anyone has an idea ?

Technical question : will the glasses work with my 19'' B & W TV, or am I just getting my hopes for nothing?
