“3D technology has garnered a lot of media attention lately, and the public has shown that they want to be part of the revolution,” ShopNBC electronics guest expert Elliot Smith said in a canned statement. “Mitsubishi has developed a television that is not only 3D-ready, but also is of the highest quality. Even if customers choose not to take advantage of the 3D capabilities that come with this TV, they can still experience a stunning, rich picture for all their entertainment needs. Another bonus, the Mitsubishi TV comes with the Sony 3D BluRay player, allowing Internet-streaming capabilities. This way, customers can enjoy streaming online videos on a 65-inch HDTV.”

And that isn’t all from Smith.

“Mitsubishi isn’t focused only on high quality, but on simplicity as well. Mitsubishi has taken out all the guesswork of an in-home BluRay 3D experience by incorporating a start-to-finish BluRay 3D kit,” he said. “Customers will receive everything they need for a complete BluRay 3D experience in an easy, hassle-free set-up – all at a price that won’t break the bank.”

Rod Ghormley, ShopNBC’s vice president of home and electronics, said in his canned statement, “As the preferred destination for top values in electronics, we are thrilled to showcase this exclusive, national launch of the new Mitsubishi 3D-Ready HDTV with complete BluRay 3D Home Theater Kit on our multi-media network. Customer trends have shown strong interest and demand for 3D-ready technology and large screen TVs. Now we are able to meet and exceed our customer’s lifestyle needs with a show-stopping, easy-to-use entertainment package.”
