Despite 3-D TV being marketed as “the next big thing” in home entertainment, it hasn’t really seemed to catch on with consumers. Some people are starting to wonder if 3-D TV can survive long enough to catch the interest of the general public.
The main reasons why 3-D TV hasn’t caught on are obvious — the high price of required equipment, and the lack of good 3-D movies. Also, many people complain about having to wear glasses to enjoy a movie.
Wired has suggested that Hollywood is one of the big reasons why 3-D TV isn’t popular, due to the lack of content properly converted to display in 3-D.
In order to make 3-D TV more popular with consumers, it’s been suggested that the entertainment industry take a different approach. Cheaper 3-D TV’s, a better selection of movies, sports broadcasts in 3-D and more attractive eyewear would be a great place to start.
