2010: The Year
We Get 3DTV!!

I am – Hercules!! Are you ready to start wearing glasses over your glasses to watch TV? The Consumer Electronics Show is making news with the coming of 3DTV. A timeline: * MAY 2010: LG's first 3DTV set hits the market. The new sets are expected to cost $200 to $300 more than comparable 2D sets. More manufactures are expected to make announcements about 3DTV sets Wednesday. * JUNE 2010: DirecTV launches three HDTV channels. "At launch, the new DIRECTV HD 3D programming platform, powered by Panasonic, will offer a 24/7 3D pay per view channel focused on movies, documentaries and other programming, a 24/7 3D DIRECTV on Demand channel and a free 3D sampler demo channel featuring event programming such as sports, music and other content," according to a Jan. 6 press release. * SUMMER 2010: The Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) launches a 3DTV channel. * 2011: Discovery, Sony and Imax team launches a 3DTV channel. Expect a lot of original programming and movies like "Chicken Little" and "Avatar" that were made in 3D. While it's a relatively simple process to convert an old film print to HD, converting old-fashioned 2D movies and TV shows to 3D is apparently proving much more labor-intensive. Follow links to stories on the sets and the channels.
