      Thanks everyone for the great comments! I think the 3D trend is a neat one and it makes sense following the popularity of the TVs to have an all 3D channel. Imagine it 24 hours a day - wow! Appreciate the votes and shares :)

      I can see what many men are going to want under the Christmas tree this year. Just when you think the latest is out, they update. I don't think this is something that will be around our home for quite awhile. Good information to know.

      Great news. Here we have 3D channel called Sky 3D that shows sport, nature documentaries and 3D movies. The BBC also broadcast the wimbledon finals and the finale of UK version of Dancing with stars on 3D. It is really cool in the living room watching a 3D movie although we all look weird sitting there with the glasses on!

      I also didn't know there was a 3D channel, but need to ask Kevin, because if anyone would have known this it would have been him. That said thank you for sharing and have of course voted and shared all over!!

      Christy, I didn't know there was a 3D channel on television. I live in the Dark Ages without tv! Fascinating that there is one, and your hub was quite interesting. Maybe some day I'll be invited over to someone's house and I'll be able to see it for myself.
