You can also freely select extras, commercials to see.

2. TV + 3D TV device;
Please make sure your TV support the transmission of 3D content, upgrade the firmware of set-top-box or change a superior replacement would be necessary. Also you need Red/Blue 3D glasses to watch 3D video.
3. 3D digital viewer (such as iPad which can playback avi, mkv, mp4... files only).
Getting 3D video playback on your iPad, you need to rip the original blu-ray 3D disc by DVDFab firstly, then sync the converted mkv/avi/mp4 files to your iPad.
