Which companies still make 3D TVs?

Why did they stop making 3D TVs?
Except … it wasn’t the next big advance. ESPN 3D shut down three years later “due to limited viewer adoption of 3D services to the home” — though ESPN vowed to be ready “if or when 3D does take off.” The following month, BBC announced it would be suspending its 3D programming due to a “lack of public appetite.”
What is a passive 3D TV?
What it is: Passive 3D TVs blend two frames in one, alternating between horizontal lines of the frame meant for the left eye and the one for the right eye. Passive 3D glasses have different polarization on each lens that fits with their respective lines (right polarized for even lines, left for odd).
What is the difference between active and passive 3D television?
Active 3D uses battery-powered 3D glasses which have LCD ‘shutters’ over each lens — when 3D content is being shown, the LCD glasses darken to block the lens of each eye of the 3D glasses sequentially, in sync with the 3D itself. However, passive 3D does not use any fancy technology in the glasses.
