Channel 4 will broadcast 3D TV in the UK in Autumn Channel 4 has announced that it plans to broadcast 3D television programmes in the UK during the Autumn, beating heavyweight Sky which has already carried out some 3D tests including a live concert by Keane. Channel 4 will broadcast its 3D content using ColorCode, which will provide a normal picture for the naked eye, and a 3D effect with the use of appropriate 3D glasses.
The network said that 3D glasses which can be used to view the programmes will be distributed through the Sainsbury's retail chain. One of the first shows that will be broadcast in 3D will be a show with illusionist Derren Brown, as well as a combination of clips and documentaries in a collection dubbed "The Greatest Ever 3D Moments".

Sky Digital also has plans to commence 3D programmes broadcasting, hoping to make it available to consumers before Christmas.

for true 3d like the new film avatar from james cameron will require you to purchase all new, "better than ever" hardware.

All this is, is the industry trying to convince ppl that its worth throwing out all ur equipment to get the next best thing, again!

but people its new, its better than ever, get your credit cards out and purchase, purchase, purchase get into debt ppl as it doesn't matter any, just keep spending as you don't want to end up in the "dark ages" with a poor old flat screen that doesn't do the "new improved" thingy.

don't question anything, remain stupid & just keep consuming!
