What is the difference between a 3D-ready TV and a 3D TV ?

A 3D-ready TV requires additional equipment to display 3D programming, such as a synchronization device that communicates with the 3D glasses. This equipment is available from your TV's manufacturer.

A 3D TV has all the required equipment built in, making it fully prepared for 3D viewing out of the box. It can display 3D programming as soon as it is connected and will often come packaged with at least one pair of the required 3D glasses.

Our 3D programming is compatible with both 3D TVs and 3D-ready TVs that have the appropriate additional equipment, as long as the TV supports the side-by-side 3D display format. 3D TVs and 3D-ready TVs purchased after March 2010 should be compatible.

If you are not sure whether the TV you own or would like to purchase is compatible, contact the television's manufacturer for more details.
