A 3DTV service has been launched by Samsung, which aims to offer owners of the company’s 3D sets across to more footage than is currently available.
The Telegraph reports that a number of trailers for 3D films will be made available through the internet to owners of the TVs, alongside a number of documentaries.
Andy Griffiths, vice president UK of consumer electronics explains that while Samsung was not a broadcaster, it had found that owners of 3D TVs were ‘frustrated’ at the limited amount of content available to them. He added that the offering would be expanded throughout 2011. “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,” added Griffiths.
The paper also says that the company is aiming to develop TV apps and is aiming to attract app developers to work with it.
