Samsung 3D TVs to hit UK in March

UK Internet@TV will support BBC iPlayer

Samsung will make its 3D TVs, which were launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, available in the UK from next month.

The LED 7, LED 8 and LCD 7 models along with the BD-C6900 Blu-ray player will be on sale in March, with the LED 9, the Plasma 7 Series and the HT-C6930W Home Theatre System following in late spring.

"The success of recent 3D movie titles is building anticipation from people who want to enjoy the richness of 3D content from the comfort of their living room", said Andy Griffiths from Samsung.

The TVs feature Samsung's 3D processor that automatically converts 2D content into 3D in real time, as well as built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections and access to Samsung's Internet@TV service that allows users to watch video content on the web.

Samsung said the UK version of Internet@TV will support BBC iPlayer and content from film rental service Lovefilm.

"We are confident that by being first to market with the best integrated technology and approach, we have the best opportunity to capitalise on the market anticipation and continue to strengthen our leadership in 2010."

Samsung did not reveal pricing details.
