Disney to start new VOD 3D service Disney has agreed to a new content licensing agreement with 3D company Sensio Technology for an upcoming VOD TV service.
The new service is called 3DGO! and will go live later this month.

At launch, the service will be limited to 22 Vizio TV models, all of which have 3D and Internet capabilities.

Over 20 movies from the studio will be available, including newer films like "Brave" and "Frankenweenie."

For the time being, it would seem the service will be very niche, as 3D set sales remain lackluster.

"We are very excited with today's announcement with The Walt Disney Studios which heralds a new era for 3D movie watching at home," said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO president and CEO. "The Disney 3D library is without contest one of the best out there and we are thrilled to add an incredible selection of titles from a true legendary studio and 3D pioneer. From day one, we've set out to bring the best of 3D entertainment to our clients and today's announcement is the concrete proof of the seriousness of our commitment. We are more determined than ever to realize our promise to address the lack of 3D content to the home and to support our SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D customers with the best library of 3D content in the market. We are really looking forward to the next few months, as more content providers will join us in this effort to give consumers instant and easy access to the largest variety of high-quality 3D content."
