Available from 4 November to 22 November 2009*

3D has a long and colourful history. From a 19th century craze to the 3D movies of the 50s when it was developed to fight off competition from television; and from the 1980s revival that saw Jaws 3D packing out cinemas; to the cutting-edge 3D technology of today.



Sainsburys in association with Channel 4 is bringing you a week of 3D TV

Channel 4
In a dedicated week Channel 4 invites viewers to put on their 3D specs and celebrate 3D on TV. Were not talking state of the art IMAX technology here, but some good old fashioned fun. From unseen footage of The Queen in her coronation year to Derren Brown and movies, Channel 4 will be offering viewers another dimension across seven days of classic and original programming.

*Subject to availability. Whilst stocks last.

this is hot have some rep

cheers will look out for these

thanks for that

Off to sainsburys tomoz to order me xmas turkey. I'll pick some up.

Thanks computerbar. I finally got to see Yvonne Strahovski in Chuck in 3D...

S'not bad at all - a genuine freebie - this is what makes this site geat!

We watched Up in 3D during 1/2 term last week (well worth it!) using Tesco Vouchers and a a few £'s for the 3D upgrade - Cineworld gave us each a pair of 3D glasses! Fair enough there was a collection box, which my honest missus deposited hers into - managed to salvage mine and the kids so we have 4 free 3D glasses (Handy for Guiness Book of records etc).

Worth knowing, though I am not going to be so sad as to post my free 3D glasses as a listing on HUKD's (as some might do!) as we did have to 'buy' the cinema tickets

Are these the same colours as the free Chuck 3D glasses which were available a few months ago?

got 2 pairs~ H&R

But the RealD technology used the cinema is completely different to that employed by printed books and/or Channel 4 TV.
Have you actually tried your "free" 3D Glasses with the Guiness Book Of Records ? I suspect they won't work with anything except your local Cinema

The cinema 3D glasses from films like UP and Final Destination are different to the old 3D glasses from years ago.

The cinema ones have 2 black lenses, where as the old 3D glasses had a blue and red filter for each eye. Looks like the Channel 4 ones go back to the old fashioned way, with a blue and orange filter.

Oh well, freebie.

thanks, this looks great

The blue-amber 3D glasses that were issued for the 3D broadcast of Chuck and for this Channel 4 week are ]ColorCode 3-D, which seems to be an improvement on the previous red-green anaglyph method.

It does seem bizarre for Channel 4 to put out programmes that you can only really watch properly if you happen to live near a branch of Sainsbury.

Anyone know of any other way to get these?

There's only 51 Sainsburys stores nationwide which won't be stocking the glasses, the one which I work at is one of them.

Still a great offer, I'll just have to pop into another one for them

Do many people not live reasonably close to a Sainsburys? Tesco or Asda (or a variety of stores) would work better but I'm sure this deal benefits Channel 4 more financially.

You can order them off the internet though - for something like £2 each. Any "colour code" glasses will work.

Awesome thanks

Well if you didn't find "none", presumably you found some?

:whistling:

most films seem to be in 3d these days but i like it! :0)

gud reply!!

Just got some of these today.

They work pretty well with this program to see Google Earth in 3D
stereo.jpn.org/eng…tml

There are some 3D Videos on Youtube. I used my free glases and they do work when watching on you tube!:thumbsup:

I got mine today! I tested on few 3D movie trailers on youtube on laptop. Not getting real feeling. Anyway, I will try with Channel 4's ... next week!
But, the colorcode3d.com is working fantastic!!! (Only still photos but not the movies).
