Pretty much a flip flop as Samsung said they were only going to do 3D on their top 2016 models.

The LG comment scares me too as their lower tier models are junk IMO.

This really sucks because all the 3D combo packs I have bought awaiting a tv to display them. We were getting close enough to be able to wear polarized lenses (passive) and get great effects. My next tv rather than being a 1080p 3D set would be a 4K with 3D capability, but have to wait for next gen 4K so that it has all the protocols and capabilities needed - HDR, etc...

There certainly is an unfairness about the possibility that, in a few years, there could be hundreds of 3D movies being released in theaters that may not ever be seen, in 3D, at home. I don't know that German and Chinese markets can support consumer 3D for the rest of the world.

I don't think necessarily signals the end for 3D at home. There are still 3D projectors and TV sets coming out, and UHD players will likely still play 3D Blu Rays (at least some will). Perhaps it won't be as ubiquitous as it used to be, but I'm sure there will still be support for those who want it. Just like Atmos won't be in every receiver, but it'll still be there for those who want it.
