I drifted over to the DTV area just to see what comments were coming in on the 3D broadcasts and I couldn't find any. Maybe I am not used to their side of the fence but it would have seemed people would be commenting on the quality of the 3D broadcasts.

As a D* subscriber, I'm not impressed - at ALL. The actual picture quality is sub-par compared to regular 3D broadcasts. Plus they only air it as one huge program during the daytime (a tape delay of the previous days events), which means I have to eat up 10 or so hours of DVR space if I want to record. There's nothing at all on in prime time or overnight, so recording is the only way to watch if you have a job. But if I happen to be home during the day & want to watch live, I have to watch the same 3 commercials every 10 minutes.

Truly a failed experiment, at least as far as the U.S. coverage goes.

I have DISH and two capable displays in our home. One using passive glasses and the other active. Still no DISH feed to use either..... :(. SJ

I have a 3D capable TV, but I will not spend $1200 (4 x $300) for glasses for the family to watch a fraction of TV shows in 3D.


If you think you have to pay $1200 for four pairs of glasses, I'd hate to see the deal you got on the TV.:sure:

The 3D glasses for the new Samsung and Panasonic TVs are compatible with a new 3D Glasses initiative. Samsung sells a pair for $20. They can be had on Amazon for $17.47...with batteries. That's cheaper than most sunglasses.

Do you like any 3D at all?
