I have to say, I am rather excited about 3D week on Channel Four!
If all the gadget pundits are to be believed, 3D TV is the next generation of how we watch television in our own homes, and it’s not as far off as some of us may have thought!
With respect to this, Channel Four are having a 3D week, where we, as viewers at home, will be able to experience 3D images coming from our own television sets! It’s like the ultimate technology preview!
3D week starts from 16th November 2009, and although many of the shows featured are not really to my taste (the Coronation one looks good, as does Friday 13th Part III), I want to try and watch all of them to get a real flavour for what’s to come. I do like that they have put on a real mix of show genres so that we can see how each type would work with 3D, and that it’s not all scary horror movies etc.
To participate in viewing these shows, all you have to do is pick up a free pair of glasses from selected Sainsbury’s stores (click HERE to locate your nearest branch) and then tune in to the programmes you want to watch.
Pioneering TV in my opinion, and, perhaps wrongly, it’s not from the BBC, who seemingly hadn’t the forsight to do something adventurous such as this earlier! Could you imagine if they made their current LIFE series in 3D?! It’s spectacular at the moment… but BBC documentaries in 3D would be truly amazing! Good on Channel Four!

I am having a 3D TV party at my house on Monday evening with a few friends, I soooo can’t wait!
Oh, and I love the trailer (apart from the blurry 3-d bit at the end, which plays havock with my contacts heh!)
