Please note: We are experiencing a problem with our 3DTV Play authentication servers that prevents users from being able to activate a purchased copy of the software. We apologize for any confusion or frustration caused by this situation. We are working to resolve this issue and to improve the 3DTV Play purchase and activation experience for all of our customers.
In the meantime, we have revised the terms of our 3DTV Play trial license. Current and new users may now download 3DTV Play and enjoy all of its features and benefits free of charge for six months. Once the free period is up, current owners will be able to activate their purchased software and new users may purchase and register the software as directed. We will provide more details at a later time.
Thank you for your patience.
