What will the 3D content look like on a non-3D television (with or without 3D glasses)?


Our receivers will detect whether the TV can support 3D or not and only make the 3D channel available if the TV supports it.  If your HD receiver is not connected to a supported 3D television, there will be no video and you will see an on-screen message that says, “This program cannot be viewed because this TV is not 3D capable.”
