2010 saw 3D TVs finally leave the tech show booths and enter (a few of) our homes. There’s also 3D Blu-ray players, projectors and 3D channels, but so far the uptake has been slow, with potential viewers put off by cost, lack of content and, it must be said, the glasses.
Will 3D TV even make it to 2020? The other huge area of growth is IPTV – on-demand telly via your computer. Pioneered by pirates on YouTube, MegaVideo and others and then by the legitimate likes of BBC iPlayer, online services are fast becoming our preferred way to consume content.
