As stated by the British Video Association, in order to watch 3-D television in high-resolution format, you must have a 3-D television, an infrared emitter (which is normally an integral part of the 3-D TV), 3-D glasses that are passive or active shutter, a 3-D Blu-ray player and a 3-D Blu-ray disc.
