Blu-ray 3D recorder/player?

I've just bought a new Vizio 55" 3D Smart TV but have nothing to play on it yet. I was wondering if there are such things as Blu-ray 3D combination recorder/players since it would be nice to find a 3D movie on Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, etc. and record it so it could be played again in the 3D format at another time. I don't have any DVD or Blu-ray disks either, and would prefer not to have to buy any if I can get 3D movies though my TV's apps.
Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
Thank you!

Panasonic makes one.
If your tv does 2d to 3d conversion, you'd be able to convert whatever content you're watching into 3d.
If it can be played through the tv, it can be converted.

Unfortunately, no 2D to 3D conversion with this model. It's the one feature I wasn't able to get with the other things I wanted more that came close to what I could afford. Even though I couldn't go from 2D to 3D, I'd still like be able to record both 2D and 3D programs/movies to play later. Do you know the Panasonic model?

All services are pay services from my understanding. You can watch downloaded 3D movies on these TV via these services, and your cable providers will eventually if not already broadcast 3D movies. So yes you can watch 3D without buying a 3D player and 3D movies. My question would be though, why? If you could fork out the money to buy a 3D TV it would make sense to fork out the money to buy a 3D player and some movies, or at least have the ability to play them if you buy them later or a friend can come over with some. 3D movies can be inexpensive, and players are less than $100 when you find them on sale. I bought a highly rated, very capable player for about $90. I have bought combo movies (3D/blu-ray or 3D/blu-ray/DVD or 3D/blu-ray/DVD/digital copy) for about the same price at getting the blu-ray by itself.

Read the ratings for some of the 3D movies and you will see people really enjoy them.

Thank you for your thoughts. I have been watching rented 3D movies but have no desire to buy any since I don't care to see the same one over and over again. I'd simply wondered if there was a recorder/player that would allow me to tape unwatched 3D movies available from my pay per view services, and free ones via Comcast's Xfinity and Amazon's Instant Video, to view later. If I were to go the Blu-ray player route I'd probably get the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Integrated Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player for $89 from Amazon but have finally decided on TiVo.
