How could they be so out of touch? Unlike many in this forum, most families keep their sets until they start breaking down.

Why do they still make 3D movies? Asia. That's the market for 3D content and where all 3D post-production work is performed. They are the only market that still has a limited number of 3D HDTV models for consumers and they have a strong marketplace of 3D headsets for those with less space to enjoy such content. Here in Murica, the 3D boom coincided with the digital projector transition, so many cinemas were equipped with 3D projectors for Avatar and though the number of 3D-capable screens has dropped, all the replacement projectors installed after that period support 3D add-ons, so it's there if needed. Also, IMAX mandated 3D on all their cineplax installs, so that too has kept 3D alive outside of Asia, as well as greatly expanding it in Asia, where there are many IMAX screens.

That's good for you. When I had my Z9D I tried over and over to get it to work, it just flickered and cross-talked.

Joe, I would still be using webtv(at least for email), if they hadn't abandoned it; I still have email accounts from paypal etc. using webtv that they never seem to notice that the emails they send are coming back to them and have been for 5 years! I just don't want to change all my old paypal info.

Hi wild.

They still make internet browsers for televisions but with the low cost of a good tablet, not really feasible for me anymore.

Never had a PC at home. After webtv became obsolete, I did use the Logitech device which worked very well but also started becoming obsolete.

Did you see in the Aquaman thread my comment about the cover?

I find it bizarre that the same tv companies that stopped making 3D tv's still make blu-ray and UHD players that support 3D!! It's like they're trying to wind us up!

I'm lucky enough to have a 2016 LG OLED that supports passive 3D and it's fantastic. But I know one day it'll fail on me and that will be that, goodbye 3D collection

Am I right that projectors only work with active glasses? I hope I'm wrong...

At anything approaching a reasonable cost, yes.

How much more does it cost a manufacturer to make a 3D set as opposed to 2D?

I had my LG 47LW5600, repaired once and its still functioning. I had hoped to pick up a 3D LG OLED but that plan went south a couple years back. I'm left with Craigslist for new used tv. Why the heck did they pull 3D when writing 4K specs? Geez.

because depth, pop out and excitement and true escapism pales into comparison next to their brilliant new 'a.i.' voice control, i mean who wants to watch TV when you can talk to it and ignore the picture instead

I'd say somewhere around $50: Cost of the additional equipment that went into the TV and the licensing fees

Ultra HD Blu-ray is all about "4K" resolution (along with HDR and WCG). 3D forces the resolution to be half: 2K.

Consumers didn't like having to wear glasses to watch 3D in their homes. In movie theaters they were comfortable with them (those that go to see 3D movies) because there are no distractions. You are there to watch a movie and nothing else.

a lot of people are incapable of watching a full film or tv show without checking their phone every 2mins- i think this is one of the reasons they are integrating all the social media and a.i. gimmicks into them now.

Used more as entertainment hubs than tv's for some.

I have an 46" LG that I bought 6 years ago, and I have to admit, I get anxious when I think about this TV blowing out, knowing there are no replacements (other than buying an older, possibly used model).

Thoughts?
They still make 3D capable 4K projectors. Small TV's running 3D is kind of silly unless you have at least a 100" flat panel. That is why home theater is the BEST place for 3D. Most of my friends are now running 150"+ projection systems with 3D in their homes and loving it. Flat panel TV's are boring and those are what should be killed off. But similar to your point, why do they still make gasoline engines?
