Article: HDTV 3D doomed to failure?

January 6, 2011 by  

It seems we aren’t the only avenue that loves HDTV but isn’t very rosy about the future of 3D as a medium that will be around for years and years to come. Large blog site TVPredictions feels even less optimistic about its future, as much as we honestly would love to stand behind it and will it to succeed.

Among its points, it states that 3D HDTV is not convenient to use, which is one of its three points to success. Read:

At this time, 3D TV does not add convenience to anyone’s life. To watch 3D TV at home, you have to buy a new TV — at a price higher than non 3D TVs — new expensive 3D goggles if you have more than one person in your family; a 3D Blu-ray player if your TV provider does not offer 3D channels; and you have to buy all these things after you likely just purchased a new TV to be ready for the 2009 Digital TV transition.

We actually agree with its arguments, but hopefully as the tech evolves it will become easier to use. Read more about this article’s pointed opinions here.
