3D Viewing Angles

What type of TV would give me the widest viewing angle while watching 3d tv? Looking for a new TV and I have a corner wall tv location. The TV will be able to swivel but due to the arrangement of the living room which is pretty locked in it is going to leave one seat dead on with everybody else watching at slight angles, maybe 15 degrees . Would 3d be worthless with this arrangement?

Plasma has the widest viewing angle. Most are discontinued but some still can be had. I don't think 15 degrees is way to far off for LCD but farther might be a problem.

Smart enough to know better, to old to care

Most LCDs these days have about a 170 degree viewing angle, so if you can get everyone around 15 degrees (which is shoulder to shoulder in most living rooms), you should be fine even for passive 3D.
