LG announces 3D TV and Blu-ray bundle with free glassesBy Matthew DeCarlo 7 comments
Like it or not, a flurry of 3D-equipped consumer electronics is rolling in - and fast. In just a few short months, holiday-decked shopping centers will stock 3D alternatives to most products available with a standard LCD display, and you can expect industry titans such as LG to blitz the market with various home entertainment packages.
The Korean manufacturer announced today that it will reward you for buying a new HDTV and Blu-ray setup. When customers purchase an Infinia LX6500 or LX9500 LED HDTV with a 3D Blu-ray player, the company will throw in a pair of 3D active shutter glasses. The "1-2-3D bundle" will also include a $100 instant rebate and a mail-in coupon for a free copy of IMAX Under the Sea 3D.
Sony, Panasonic and Samsung are planning or have already announced similar 3D starter kits, with discounted TVs, Blu-ray players, videos, and in Sony's case, PlayStation games and consoles.
