Still not convinced that 3D is the next big thing? Neither am I, but Samsung are doubling down (yet again) with an innovative 3D VOD system beamed direct to their latest and greatest TVs. Couple this with their price cut on 3D glasses and at the very least they deserve full marks for trying.
If you have a D series Samsung Smart TV (it pains me to write this as I’m a lowly schmuck with a C series) then you will be able to enjoy Free, VOD 3D content including films, music videos, children’s classics, documentaries and trailers through the “Explore 3D” app.
Physical media such as 3D BluRay has been the traditional way to access 3D content (or expensive subscription packages) but given that physical media is increasingly become antiquated in this day and age of connected living (yes even 3D BluRays), it makes sense that Samsung is utilising its Smart TV platform to bring more and more content to users. Especially as this is a loss-leading advert for 3D in general.
Andy Griffiths, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung UK said:
“The demand for 3D is growing rapidly, but only a handful of channels are providing content. Samsung has led the 3D LED TV market since it launched last year, and the roll-out of our 3D video-on-demand service demonstrates our commitment to accelerating its growth. We believe that in the near future every viewer will have access to 3D content in the comfort of their own living room through a Smart TV. We will therefore continue to develop our Smart TV offering in order to provide consumers with the best viewing experience possible.”
One of the lucky few with a D-Series? Head to the app store and give it a whirl.
