3D fans ask LG to revive 3D on a 2018 OLED TV

18 Jan 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

At CES 2017, LG announced its decision to abandon 3D; a decision that came one year after most other major brands abandoned the technology. The decision saddens fans of 3D so over 4000 consumers have signed a petition for LG to revive 3D on a 2018 OLED TV.

Fans to LG: Please revive 3D

Most manufacturers buried 3D last year. LG gave 3D another year before announcing at CES 2017 earlier this month that it will be excluded from all 2017 OLEDs, despite OLED delivering the best 3D picture quality.

LG’s decision saddens Aidan Padden from Leeds, UK, who is a fan of 3D so he has started a petition to voice his concerns.

- “The 2016 OLED range were the pinnacle of 3D in the home and LG offered the best solution that has ever been seen in the consumer space for 3D,” Aidan Padden wrote.

This type of petition has worked in the past. When PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S introduced HDR gaming, frustrated owners urged LG to add a 'HDR Game mode' to its TVs. LG reacted just a few weeks later by adding the requested feature. That particular petition was signed by close to 3500 owners.

None of LG’s 2017 TVs will support 3D. Not even the most expensive W7 model that will retails for $8000 dollars. The decision also affects other companies such as Sony and Panasonic who source OLED panels from LG.Display.

”Please just give us consumers an option rather than tossing 3D entirely”
At CES, FlatpanelsHD asked LG about the decision to drop 3D and despite some chatter about it being related to display brightness LG said that the decision has very little to do with technical concerns. The decision was taken because 3D as a format is dying. There is no 4K 3D standard and other brands as well as studios have already abandoned the format.

Nevertheless, fans of 3D hope that LG will reconsider the decision and introduce just a single 3D-capable OLED TV next year.

- “Please just give us consumers an option rather than tossing 3D entirely - many other manufacturers tossed it because they couldn't do it properly. LG can and did and hopefully will again.”

Agree? Go sign the petition here. Maybe it is all in vain but at least you will have tried. The petition will be delivered to LG Electronics once it has reached its goal of 5000 supports. At the time of writing, 4266 people have signed it.
