3DTV is the latest addition to Charter’s On Demand service, which has been available to customers for several years. Charter On Demand provides thousands of movies and shows with many in HD, and now with movies in 3D, there is always a wide variety of programs available instantly.
“As winter approaches, people find themselves indoors a bit more and inclined to stay at home for their entertainment,” said Aimee Pfannenstiel, vice president and general manager of Charter’s operations in Tennessee. “Our On Demand service has become very popular year-round, providing in-home entertainment that’s convenient and inexpensive. Access to Charter On Demand is available at no additional charge for Charter TV in Digital customers, and now with the availability of ordering movies in 3D, our On Demand service provides even more value to our customers.
In order to view 3D movies On Demand, customers will need to have a 3DTV connected to a Charter Motorola HD receiver, as well as the pair of 3D glasses that came with their TV.
A May 2011 report by Scottsdale, Arizona-based In-Stat in Home Media Magazine, said it expects that all TVs with screen sizes larger than 40 inches will be 3D compatible going forward. The research firm said 3DTV units will top 300 million by 2015. “Because interest and demand for 3DTV has grown, Charter is providing 3D programming that is of value to our customers,” Pfannenstiel said. “The addition of movies in 3D is another enhancement to their TV experience.”
Customers who have 3D TVs in their home should use the 3D glasses and remote control that are compatible with their 3DTV in order to view Charter On Demand movies in 3D. Go to charter.com/3D or call 1-888-GET CHARTER (1-888-438-2427) for more information.
