Sears to Sell Samsung 3-D HDTVs In March

Washington, D.C. (February 23, 2010) -- Sears says it will begin selling Samsung 3-D HDTVs next month, which will make it one of the first retailers to sell the new 3-D sets.

Sears says two Samsung sets will begin shipping next month: a 46-inch, 3-D LED HDTV priced at $2,599 and a 55-inch LED HDTV priced at $3,299. They will be available at Sears stores in March.

"The anticipation for the 3-D experience at home has been mounting, and we're giving our shoppers a competitive edge by being one of the first retailers to offer these products," stated Karen Austin, president, Home Electronics, Sears Holdings.

Sears says the "the secret" to Samsung's 3-D technology is that viewing the TV with the glasses creates a slightly different image for each eye, resulting in a unique 3-D viewing experience.

Consumers can pre-order the sets now at Sears.com.

However, while the 3-D sets will be available next month, there apparently won't be any content available to watch on them. DIRECTV is not expected to launch three 3-D channels until June and 3-D Blu-ray players will likely not be ready until later in the spring.
