Will Current 3D Blurays work with Future Glass-Free 3D HDTVs??

This is a question that is bothering me. I'm waiting for glass-free 3d hdtvs, and i know it is happening, especially after CES 2012.

There are some movies i want to buy in 3D, but i don't have a 3D TV, but I want to buy it when i buy the Glass-Free 3dTV.

is there any news about this, or will it be another marketing gimmick, like how a lot of people bought HD-DVDs, but after BluRay won the war, HD-DVDs are dead weight now

nobody want to discuss this? I mean, we all know GlassFree 3D TV's are coming, nobody here is curious if your current 3D blurays will work with that technology?

I don't see a reason why they wouldn't work. Current 3D movies work with all kinds of glasses tech so I can't think of a reason why they couldn't display on a glasses free tv. I mean, it's the TV at that point doing the 3D effect work from the signal coming in I don't think it would require a different player or copy of the movies.

This is precisely correct. Current 3D Blu-ray discs work with active shutter or passive glasses, as well as the limited number of glasses-free displays already available. They will continue to work with other TVs in the future. The difference in display format will not affect the signal coming in.

Regular Blu-ray work on LCD, plasma, DLP, etc. It's the same principle.
