3D TV In The UK
UK TV fans have been among the most welcoming of 3D entertainment since 3D TVs hit the UK stores in the early spring of 2010, and those 3D TV UK stores have seen one of the largest collections of different models. Well known stores John Lewis, Currys, and Comet were the first to show the new 3D TV sets, with Samsung and Panasonic the first of the manufacturers. Sales results indicate that around 120,000 3D TVs were sold in the UK in 2010, with the potential to grow to half a million in 2011
Interest in 3D TV was kicked off in the UK partly thanks to the broadcast of live football matches across pubs in major cities, and that interest has been built on since by the release of Bskyb's 3D TV channel - Sky 3D - which went live in October 2010. Availability of 3D content was further increased with the launch of the Virgin Media 3D VOD video on demand service in September 2010.
As in other markets across the world, UK 3D TV prices have been reducing steadily over recent months, and even with the need to buy 3D glasses and a 3D Blu Ray for extra content you'll find that what was in the early days an expensive luxury is now becoming within reach.
It's easy to tell where the best places to see and buy 3D TVs are in the UK, with such popular home stores as John Lewis and electrical retailers Currys, Dixons, and Comet all stocking ranges. You can read 3D TV reviews and buy online at any of these as well as in the bricks and mortar stores in UK High Streets, and of course Amazon UK is also a great place for reviews and good prices.
