Samsung goes live with 3D VOD service

Back in January at CES 2011, Samsung announced a partnership with DreamWorks that would see "a new streaming 3D Video-On-Demand (VOD) service that would make DreamWorks Animation content - trailers and promotions in both 3D and 2D-  available for streaming via the 3D application for Samsung Smart TVs beginning in 2011.

And now it looks as if the service has landed already in Korea.

As well as the movie trailers and clips the 3D service, which is available through connected Samsung Smart TV devices, will also offer 3D music videos, music concerts (with "nationally famous artists", no less) and children's 3D content too.

Described as "the industry's first VOD service...to provide high-quality 3D content", the service will no doubt be used to peddle Samsung's ever increasing 3D range.

The 3D VOD service that has gone live in Samsung's homeland is, according to a Google translation job anyway, coming to the United States and Europe before the year is out, with a global roll-out planned as well.

We'll bring you more UK and US specific details as soon as we have them.
