Samsung's Free 3D VODs Launch in UK

Posted Wed May 18, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

A release of the 3D VOD service in the States is expected to follow.

Generally, if you want 3D you're going to have to pay dearly for it. You can see it theatrically, pay for another tier of cable channels or buy the Blu-rays, but Samsung's newest launch brings 3D content to you for free - assuming you live in the UK of course.

Over 70 free 3D videos will be available through the "Explore 3D" app by the end of this year. This includes not only short-form content like music videos and trailers, but full length movies and children's features as well. Samsung says that there are 20 videos currently available.

When the free 3D service was initially announced for Korean customers, the company said that a release in Europe and the US were soon to follow, so we expect something on this side of the pond shortly.
