ESPN ain't even in widescreen 16:9 here yet! Let alone HD or 3D!

Any anyway... How many 3D tvs are available / have been sold in NZ so far?

The answer likely zero.

Well colour tv started here in 1974 - In europe PAL colour first started in 1967 but not all european countries went colour immediately. I guess that means we were only 7 years behind - better than I thought!

The big problem was the horrible prices of colour TVs. TVNZ6 has been showing old 1974 episodes of "Its in the Bag" and the 26" colour TV has a $999 price tag.
According to this site:http://www.rbnz.govt.nz/statistics/0135595.html
That would be around $10,000 today - wholy crap!

So the TVs are now huge and dirt cheap - I guess the big cost is changing all the filming gear!

IN the US color TV started on  November 14, 1950  and in NZ in 1974 , 23.5 years later so based on that time time. US 3D tv starts in 2010 and in NZ in  2034 so the 2020 NZ start year may be a bit optimistic..
