"China has marked the 2012 New Year with the start of 3D TV (Three-Dimensional Television) Channel service. After a trial run, the 3D TV will be officially put into operation during Spring Festival later in January. The first stations for the 3D trial are China Central Television, Beijing Television, Tianjing Broadcasting TV, Jiangsu TV and Shenzhen TV. 3D programs will be offered daily from 10:30 am to midnight.

The programs include animation, sports, documentaries, TV dramas, entertainment and live broadcasting of big events, such as CCTV New Year’s Gala and the London 2012 Olympic Games. The stations will charge no viewing fees during the early phase of operation. People who have 3D TV sets and high definition digital TV set-top boxes can watch the 3D TV programs.

And, it requires special glasses for watching the 3D programs. So, this 3D programs may NOT attract many viewers. Most of the people are expecting a kind of 3D TV-Channel which won’t require any Special Glasses."

3D TV's are still such a niche market, kind of a waste IMO.
