NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Panasonic is launching its line of 3-D TV sets, one day after Samsung revealed a similar package.

Panasonic Corp.'s suggested price for a 50-inch plasma set, one pair of glasses and a 3-D Blu-ray player hits at about $2,900. An extra pair of glasses will set you back another $150.
