Samsung 3D LED TV out in March, LoveFilm to follow

Samsung’s range of 3D LED TVs was undoubtably one of the highlights of CES in January, and we’re delighted to hear that they’ll be available to grace our living rooms by the end of March.

 

The 3D-enabled C7000 and C8000 Series models, which can also ‘upscale’ 2D footage to 3D, will be out in the next month, while the range-topping 9000 Series is set to follow soon after.

Samsung also announced that the planned LoveFilm widget will launch in April, which will allow members to rent movies and stream them directly to the set. It will also give members control of their disc-rental account.

 

The pencil-thin range, which will all be 1080p and start at 40-inches in size, will be Wi-Fi and Ethernet enabled for Samsung’s news, weather and entertainment widgets. There’s YouTube and also a BBC iPlayer widget on the way.

 

Of course, picture quality is of paramount importance, and these LED-backlit, 200Hz screens knocked it out of the park at an especially Television-heavy CES in Las Vegas at the turn of the year. Both 2D and 3D footage was magnificent, but the 2D-to-3D footage will spark just as much intrigue.

 

While it’s not ‘real’ 3D, a it’ll give the viewer the option of increasing the 3D effect from 1-10, if they own a pair of special, battery powered "Active Shutter" 3D glasses, that could be bundled with the television.

 

We’re going to have to wait a little longer for the headlining C9000 Series which, as well as a slightly improved technical offering, boasts a brilliant touchscreen, universeal remote control that allows you to preview channels on a mini screen without interrupting your current viewing.

 

There’s no news on pricing yet, and we can’t imagine than all that tech is going to come cheap, but check out our video from CES and prepare to lay down your life savings.
