Company boss Ruslan Kogan says the new 3D range will bring 3D to more customers of they choose.
“We quickly realised that the actual technology in a 3D TV that enables this feature is relatively inexpensive, and we’re entirely transparent about the added costs,” he said.
Ironically Kogan was not the biggest fan of 3D TVs and voiced such an opinion but feedback from customers showed enough demand for the company to offer this new 3D range.
“While the amount of 3D content is still small, feedback from our customers showed that the public are split almost 50/50 on whether they want 3D TV in their home,” Kogan said.
“Today’s launch is to ensure we are satisfying the needs and desires of all Kogan customers.”
