According to a survey conducted by by price comparison site Twenga, only one percent of UK consumers polled plan to purchase a 3D television set during the holiday shopping season.

Out of UK respondents, 48 percent said they would like a 3D TV, and five percent hope to get one but are unsure about it.

With six countries polled and 3,000 people participating in the survey, 32 percent felt the TVs were too expensive, 12 percent said the tech isn’t “up to snuff”, 12 percent are interested in a different type of television, and 35 percent don’t even want one at all.

A further three percent said they didn’t know if they wanted a 3D TV or not, and one percent didn’t even know what one was.

Broken up by regions, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands were generally not interested because of the cost and lack of appeal, while  Germany, UK and the Dutch had the highest percentage of  “no thanks” more or less due to price instead of interest.
