Panasonic Bundling 3D DVDs with 3D TVs

Posted Wed May 19, 2010 at 08:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

'Coraline' and 'Ice Age' will come free with VT25 purchases.

If you pick up one of Panasonic's VT25 3D televisions between today and July 10th, you'll be getting some 3D content to go with that 3D display of yours. Two films will be free with the purchase of a VT25. Sorry Best Buy shoppers, VT20s get nothing.

While the offer is definitely cool, it's not without its drawbacks. For starters, the two free discs aren't available yet. After making your television purchase, you'll have to send in a form. After Panasonic gets that form, you can expect to wait between 8 and 14 weeks for delivery. That means if you pick the TV up today, you may have to wait until August to get your Blu-rays.

But it's a nice gesture nonetheless. 'Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs' and 'Coraline' were enjoyable movies and looked great. If the 3D versions follow suit, you should be in for a great experience.
