Accessing my 3D Vudu collection

I recently changed my Blu Ray player from Sony to Panasonic. Sony supports Vudu and I've been purchasing 3D movies to stream. Now that I've switched to Panasonic who doesn't support Vudu, I can't access my movies. Is there a simple way to watch my 3D movies?

Thanks,
Mitch

Roku allows Vudu. Just buy a cheap plugin media player.

Problem is Roku doesn't support 3D.

Thanks though

Ahh...that said, it's your projector that interprets the streaming signal as 3D coming from Vudu, not the player. You should be able to add the VUDU app if your player is a smart player, though. What model is it? I will try to load a 3D movie from Vudu on my Roku tonight and see if works...will let you know.

Update: I did some searching and apparently, it's a signal type issue, and that might be the problem for Roku...

Further update: Roku doesn't support 3D signal throughput. I proved that last night.

That's one reason why I kept my Sony X800 4K Blu-ray player when I purchased the Panasonic UB820 4K player. Both are on my equipment rack. I'm assuming you got rid of your Sony.

Applying Occam's Razor, why not just hook up your old Sony player? I have 4 BluRay players for different types of disk playback. They all support VUDU 3D. But as I didn't trust VUDU to ever be mainstream, I never bought many from them.
