“Over a thousand pubs and clubs will be showing the game, with new venues being added to the pub finder daily and further venues expected to sign-up before the end of the season,” says Sky.

 “Following this Saturday’s game, Sky will show at least a further five Premier League games – to be announced – before the end of the current season (Sunday May 9) and the Coca-Cola Football League Play-Off Finals from Wembley Stadium at the end of May, all live and all in 3D.  Sky’s installers have been working hard to ensure the vast majority of pubs on the finder have been kitted out with 3D TVs and 3D glasses in time for the match”

Passive 3D TV coming sooner than expected

In May, LG will be rolling out its first passive 3D TV in the UK.

It’s called the LG LD950 and it’s offering 3D viewing at a cut price compared to it’s bigger ‘active 3D’ brothers.

Passive 3D is regarded by most as being, well…  not as good compared to active 3D.   However, to keep costs even lower, they can be used with cheaper 3D specs, which you pickup at a fraction of the costs of others.

However, LG say that each TV will be bundled out with four pairs of specs when it finally comes to stores sometime in May.  Along with 3D tech, the LD950 will have HD, four HDMI ports, 200Hz TruMotion and USB support….  handy!!

Current indications on price suggest LG will start it off at around £1,500….  however, it could be way less than that by the end of the year!

LG has announced the launch of a new LED 3D HDTV, the LG LX9500. This amazing piece of tech from LG is incredibly thin at just 22.3mm at it thickest part.  The model shown in the photo features a stunning 55 inch display, which has around 1,200 individual LEDs.

The LG LX9500 features a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a TruMotion 400Hz (480Hz) refresh rate.  As well as being very thin it also features a nice slim bezel which measures just 16mm!

“LG’s unique Full LED technology validates LG’s position as a global leader in 3D home entertainment” said Havis Kwon, Executive Vice President and head of the LCD division of LG. “By building a full line-up of 3D TVs and cultivating alliances with content and device providers, LG will set a higher benchmark in the global 3D TV industry”.    We certainly believe that!

The LG LX9500 will go on sale in Korea first and will follow suit in Europe and the U.S. soon afterwards.  LG say there will be two models available, at 47 inches and 55 inches respectively.

Pricing for the 47 inch bad boy is expected to be around $4,500….  so erm, not cheap then!
