Huh? The BBC broadcasts in 3d?
Kim Shillinglaw should be fired. I have a 3D TV, and enjoy the 3D effect immensely (I'm one of those people that it just really 'works' for).
I had absolutely no idea that the BBC had broadcast anything in 3D, until I saw this story. And just now, I've tried to find any information on what 3D programming might be coming up... can't find any information at all.
On that background if, as reported, 50% of people with a 3D TV watched the Olympic opening ceremony in 3D (remembering that this is the kind of programme that many people would have watched in large groups, not conducive to 3D because of lack of glasses) then actually I would come to a different conclusion:
There is demand for 3D TV, but no-one knows it's there. Kim Shillinglaw has simply not done her job.
My wife and I would absolutely have watched the ceremony in 3D on our TV, but we had absolutely no idea that it was available, or how to access it if it was. Is it a different channel or something?
