‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.
