Samsung has announced it is to be the first manufacturer to bring 3D LED TVs to market in Europe, with its range launching over here next month in March.

In fact the company is preparing to offer more than 20 full HD 3D-ready televisions over the next year, with its LED sets coming first, followed by LCDs and plasma options later in the spring.

All 3D TVs will use the Active Shutter technology also taken up by Sony and Panasonic, and will have PVR functionality built-in, meaning you can simply plug in a USB stick or hard drive to start recording TV content directly to the device.

They will also all be capable of 2D to 3D conversion, come with access to things such as instant film rental through LoveFilm and iPlayer on your TV through the company's integrated Internet@TV service, and will come with 3D content viewable out of the box after cuttng a deal with Dreamworks to bundle Monsters vs. Aliens with all its TVs.

Now for the bad news. Despite the close launch date Samsung still hasn't decided on prices so we're still no closer to knowing how much all this is going to cost us.

We will of course keep you updated, but in the meantime be sure to check out our guide to what you need to get 3D TV.
