Samsung announced that its award-winning full HD 3D entertainment products will be available to European consumers in March 2010, and the TVs will support new content and applications, including AudioLounge, BoxOffice 365, and Cartoon Network.

Samsung delivered its news at the company’s Regional Forum in Vienna, the first of several global events created by Samsung to educate influencers and consumers about the capabilities of the company’s 3D technology, and its ability to liberate television content into another dimension.

“The success of recent 3D movie titles is building anticipation from people who want to enjoy the richness of 3D content from the comfort of their living room,” said Andy Griffiths, Vice President of Consumer Electronics for SAMSUNG UK. “We are confident that by being first to market with the best integrated technology and approach, we have the best opportunity to capitalize on the market anticipation and continue to strengthen our leadership in 2010. Samsung continues to lead the industry by being the first to market to deliver full HD 3D LED TV — with the widest range of options of 3D home entertainment ever with a full line up of FPTVs, Blu-ray Player and Home Theater Systems – and we are lining up the best 3D content for our TVs to fuel adoption.”
