I am not very concerned about BB stocking 3D movies for the mail service. That's a very small, niche market at this point. Look at ESPN closing down its 3D network. BB needs to add more DVDs and more BluRay and skip 3D. When 3D starts to get some market share, then BB could look to add 3D titles.
I could not disagree more. If it's a nitch market that's because BB doesn't even have a 3D catagory to look in. The only way to watch 3D on your 3D TV (Every mid-priced and up TV sold today is a 3D TV) is via blu-ray 3D movies. There are hundreds of 3D movies out there right now and more being added every week. The only available avenue to watch one is to buy it (very expensice @ over $35 retail on most). Most 3DTV owners certainly at least want to try it and see if they like it. My wife and I love watching well made 3D movies (Avatar, Life of Pi, Ice Age, Shrek, Jurassic Park, Brave) on our TV. As do all of our friends and neighbors. So many of the big release movies coming out (Lone Ranger etc) are available in 3D. With tens of thousands of 3D TV's being sold this year alone how can BB not think there is a market. Especially considering we will probably never see 3D on broadcast TV which makes blu-ray 3D the only game in town for anything 3D. Want to increase membership, offer something the other guys don't offer. 3D. Do it first and do it BIG. No "Very High Demand" or "High Demand". Big stock ='s Big Happy Customers. All those new 3D TV's = new members. Of course that's assuming Dish really wants new members. That's quite debatable.
