The Russian channel Rossiya 2 expects to start experimental 3D transmissions next year.

Quoted in Satkurier, its director Dmitrij Mednikov said that preparations for the transmissions on the channel, which is part of the state owned network VGTRK and was itself launched only at the beginning of this year, began two months ago.

The first 3D TVs, produced by Samsung, are likely to appear in Russian shops sometime this month.
