Question: New to 3d... Is 3d channels supposed to be split screen?
Yes I do have a 3d tv.
I think some render a 3d image by having a split screen with two slightly different pictures and you have to use special glasses to see the two images combined into one 3D image.
There was an experiment in 3D imagins in (I think the 1950's), it was a commercial flop and didn't take off so I'm not rushing to buy 3D TVs as I'm waiting to see how the technology develops first and whether or not it catches on before I spend loads of money on a system that might not take off.
some tv require 3d glasses while others are already fitted
