While the world is moving ahead and getting caught up in the 3D craze, India is still trying to get its hands on decent HD content. But all that is changing as Videocon d2h has launched the first set-top box with 3D functionality, the 3D HD DVR. Of course, there is a catch, as there is only one channel that gives you 3D content. And that channel belongs to Videocon. They’ve not mentioned what kind of content will be made available on this channel, but I’m hoping its something worthwhile.

Mr. Saurabh Dhoot, Director Videocon Group said, “We have seen excellent growth from the time of inception and our objective is to increase penetration, offer channels and services across genres, increase subscriber base & better our ARPU’s.

You can even pause, rewind and forward live TV, record up to 200 hours and facilitate auto serial recording. This set-top box costs Rs. 3,990, with an additional installation charge of Rs. 500.
