3D content on Xfinity

I have a 3D-capable TV. Two, in fact. This Xfinity site https://www.xfinity.com/hub/tv-video/3d-tv-service indicates that there is 3D content available from Xfinity, but does not provide any instructions on how or where to access that content. False advertising?

Andrew is correct!   No 3D from Comcast for over two years.   If you have a Samsung "Real 3D" television you should have figured out by know you can convert 2D video to "Real 3D". It works best highest resolution 2160p, but still okay for down to 720p.

 

There are a few apps found on my Samsung tv for 3D movies. "You Tube" has different versions of 3D if you search for them. I have found that Best Buy still offers "Real 3D" movies througth their Internet site. I have about 15 "Real 3D" movies, but I spend more time converting outdoor sports, nature films, etc. into 3D. Of course it will look more natural 3D rather than "in your face" 3d effects created for 3D movies.

 

I would not expect Comcast to supply any 3D until the next version of television comes along for 3D.
