More Less Than Rosy 3D News: Retailers reporting ‘light’ interest in HDTV 3D

December 7, 2010 by  

Uh oh: This is not good. Recent reports released by retailers indicate a decided lack of interest in 3D HDTV as an overall medium, with sales up until now of the units being described as ‘light’ in assorted reports.

Twice Magazine states that Best Buy Home guru Adam Zwickler says interest in 3D TV was “light” during the big Black Friday weekend blowout.

A Sears official also stated the same, saying that the new 3D sets drew very little attention, according to Twice’s article. If they can’t sell them this time of year, what future can it honestly have?

It goes to show you: we can sometimes be right, and sometimes be wrong, but the customer is the final judge, and if these numbers hold up this holiday season, HDTV 3D as a medium will be in a world of hurt. It may rebound, but it doesn’t look good so far.
