    Samsung launches free 3D TV service

    Electronics giant Samsung has launched a 3DTV service to give owners of its 3D sets access to more 3D footage.

    Andy Griffiths, the company’s UK Consumer Electronics Vice-President, said that Samsung was “clearly not a broadcaster”, but added that owners of 3D televisions were frustrated that a limited amount of 3D programming was available, especially if they did not pay TV subscriptions.

    Limited numbers of trailers for 3D films will be made available via the web to owners of compatible models, as will a number of “lifestyle documentaries” such as those made by car manufacturers. Griffiths said the initial offering would be expanded over the course of the year.

    “The demand for 3D is growing rapidly, but only a handful of channels are providing content. Samsung has led the 3D LED TV market since it launched last year, and the roll-out of our 3D video-on-demand service demonstrates our commitment to accelerating its growth,” said Griffiths.

    Samsung reviews 3D progress

    Published: 16.16 Europe/London, May 17, 2011

    3DTV WORLD FORUM – LONDON. 3DTV has become established in Europe over the last 12 months. According to Vassilis Seferidis, director, European Business Development, Samsung Europe, there are already over 1,000 hours of programming, over 15 linear channels and over 25 VOD services in the format available on the continent.

    He added that the majority of 3D channels around the world are in fact now found in Europe, where 2 million 3DTV sets have been sold in the last 12 months.

    Commenting on the Explore 3D on demand service launched by Samsung earlier this month, he said that it was available in 13 European countries, with those in the Benelux region likely to be added to the list once rights issues are resolved.

    The 20+ titles at launch will probably exceed 70 by the end of the year. Although all will be offered for free this year, a charge may be introduced at a subsequent time.

    Receiving Explore 3D, which offers a variety of content, requires broadband access of at least 4 Mbps.
