 src=Well this might put a dent in 3D TV sales: The ACCC and ACMA have sent out a press release today warning consumers to be cautious when buying a 3D-capable TV for the AFL and NRL grand finals. Why? Because some areas won’t receive the 3D trial signal.

Both government agencies are “concerned about marketing by some retailers that encourages consumers to buy a 3D television to watch the grand finals when some customers may be living in areas where the 3D format is unavailable”.

So remember folks – if you are planning to buy a TV specifically for watching the finals in 3D, you should probably check you’ll get that 3D signal before you swipe the credit card.
