Samsung and Panasonic will start selling 3-D TVs in U.S. stores this week. This inaugurates what all TV makers hope is the era of 3-D viewing in the living room.
Samsung Electronics Co. is announcing Tuesday that it is selling two 3-D sets, combined with the required glasses and 3-D Blu-ray players. The packages start at about $3,000.
Panasonic Corp. has said it will sell its first 3-D set Wednesday.
For now there isn't much 3-D programming to watch on these TVs. Samsung is including a 3-D copy of "Monsters vs. Aliens" on Blu-ray discs with its packages.
