Where to find streaming 3d movies.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Now that i have a 3d projector i am trying to find lots of good movies to watch. I know vudu has streaming 3d. Iuse vudu alot on my panny 210 blu ray but panasonic for some reason does not stream 3d. I know samsung players stream it . I tried a samsung 6500 and it was less than stellar at streaming 3d as well as regular 1080 vudu. Are there any other sources besides vudu that stream 3d movies and other content?

Vudu 3D on PS3 looks horrible.
It's limited to 720p.

Vudu 3D on my Sammy Smart TV is rock solid, almost BluRay quality.

No wonder. So it's just the crappy PS3 app.

I had a sony blu ray player for a short time.. Agreed the sony 3d clips looked great. However the sony did not stream 3d vudu otherwise i would have kept it. My panasonic does everything great except vudu 3d. I saw no reason to keep the sony just for the 3d clips. I know i would get tired of watching the same clips over and over. I have a samsung 3d plasma tv and it has outstanding 3d through its smart hub. The best i have ever seen when streaming. If only they would put it in their blu ray players. I have charter cable and they offer no 3d whatsoever. The next town over from me has comcast and they do have some 3d. I dont however know what it looks like. I know the lg blu ray players stream3d blu ray but i am hesitant to even try one. I have heard lots of negative things about them. I still may pick one up and give it a try.

DirecTV has a dedicated 3D movie channel along with three other 3D channels....not really the same as streaming on demand (yet, anyway) but I had a GREAT experience watching Final Destination yesterday. Image quality and sound were excellent and I will definitely use this service again.

BTW, you didn't happen to go to high school outside of Rochester, NY did you?

I assume you mean me. No i went to high school right here in western mass. Do you know someone from there with my name? We just finished watching king fu panda 2 3d. It was real good but did not quite have the same magic that the first one had imo. Really good 3d. I am however i little disappointed that most of the 3d i have seen does not really have the pop out effect Like for example the potato cod from under the sea. I would like to see alittle more of that in movies.

Ah okay....yeah, I went to school with a few Websters, one of whom was Dan.

If you want to see impressive 3D, rent Final Destination 5. The bridge scene that everyone talks about in the beginning is probably the best implementation of the technology that I've ever seen. It was really something...

BTW, that's a beautiful theater you have there!

I also have direct tv and their 3d content is what got me to sign up for them.

I'm also from Rochester!! Grabbing some Bill Grays for lunch

Thats pretty funny. I went to rochester once. I will have to rent final destination 5. I would have gotten direct tv for my theater but i dont have a line of sight for the dish i have been told. Too many big trees around my house. Good news is that i get lots of exercise raking them. I just did it yesterday if you can believe it. Glad you like the theater. I have to update my pictures again. I have upgradeitis.

A good friend of mine is an advocate for DTV and he's always very firm with others we know that whenever they tell you they can't get a line of sight, ask them to send out a senior tech to assess the location. You may have already done that or perhaps don't want to mess with it again, but thought I'd throw that out there. I'm really impressed with how much DTV offers now compared to when I was a customer several years ago. The 3D channels are great, the on-demand and PPV stuff is really extensive, and the customer service is excellent.

Definitely post pics when you get them...I always love seeing the effects of upgradeitis on others haha

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have Comcast cable and a Starz subsription. There are many streaming 3D choices available from OnDemand. I have an Acer 9500, a Vizio 3D flat screen TV and the Sony helmet. So I have three ways to play a 3D movie. I also have a 3D Panasonic Blu-ray player.

For example I have rented the new 3D Marvel Avengers movie on Blu-ray from 3DRentals this cost about $7. I could also rent the exact same movie from cable OnDemand in 3D where it also costs about $7. There are some differences. I intend to watch this movie on all three of my 3D devices. Then I will rent the streaming version and do the same thing. At that time I will post my subjective impressions as to image quality. But I already know several other differences : comfort being the biggest difference.

Since Blu-ray is 1080p I expect it to be better than the streaming version which is probably 1080i. However streaming is more convienient. I had trouble getting the disc to play.

There are perhaps a dozen free 3D (long) shorts on cable. These are nature films, animated features, and dinosaur documentaries. They are about a hour each and are from sveral different sources. There are maybe a dozen current 3D features. These are identical to those seen in theaters. Finally I get a number of free 3D features through my Starz subscription.This cable feature seems to be growing not shrinking.
