3D TV's star appears to be fading

I believe ESPN have also closed down their 3D channel in the USA.

I'm with Mark Kermode on the subject of 3D. Doesn't add anything to the viewing experience and gives me a headache.

I bought a new smart tv and it had 3D so I gave it a go. After 10 mins it gave me head ache, I reckon if you watch it to long you will end up like the jury in the film The Jerk.

Black and white-> Colour -> Wide Screen -> HD ->3d.

 

What has happened is the last 3 have been in a really short period. and the HD to 3D period people don't have several £100 of easy credit at hand to get a new telly every couple of years unlike the Wide-Screen to HD period. Also theres the increased subscriptions to TV groups to get the best use out of them when there is not a lot of cash spare to do this.

Then factor in that at the same time as the 3D tellys being about, internet connected on demand TV is getting established and i expect this to take off as we slowly replace our tellys (another 3 year off for me) unlike 3D which i see not use for in the average family living room.

I don't know, it seems to me that dishwasher cleaner gets rebranded every few years. The new version gets rid of all stains and doesn't harm your crockery. Which is the same as they said when thy brought the last sensation, and the one before that, and the one before that, and the one bef...all the way back to the day dishwashers were invented.

At last we agree. I feel like that about Kermode, too.

If you want to see 3D go to theatre, rugby stadium, concert or whatever, TV is a 2 dimensional experience, just like the rest of your life.

I enjoy watching movies and some sport in 3D at home.

 

One of my main issues with it though is that it isn't that easy to just flick through and watch something in 3D. You have to change your settings, and tbh I move one of my sofas so it is right in front of the TV, as well as digging out the specs.

 

Also, I sometimes get bored and want to flick through and that doesn't work with 3D!

 

When I do make the effort and watch a movie though, I must admit I do enjoy it.

 

I'm not surprised that BBC are sacking it off though - they haven't really done it properly.
