Nintendo 3DS owners now have a ticket to free, exclusive 3D video content. The new Nintendo Video service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood, and the 3D content can be watched without the need for special glasses.

On July 27, OK Go will launch a new music video and will debut the 3D version exclusively on Nintendo Video. In the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies.

To access Nintendo Video, you need to connect to a broadband wireless Internet service and visit the Nintendo eShop, where you can download the Nintendo Video application. Once you've download the application, the video lineup will automatically update whenever you're within range of a wireless hotspot and have the SpotPass feature enabled, even if the system is in Sleep Mode.

It's been out for over a week now - nothing that special on it yet apart from some cartoons (which are pretty good in 3D). The big news will be when Sky launch their 3DS channel/content - that's what I am personally waiting for, but sadly we have had no news yet about when its going to launch. Or a netflix equivalent which would make train journys more interesting :)
