That would be good as it's an excellent film. :)

I don't think this has had a 4K "upgrade" yet though...

SONY and Oppo confirm UHD BR players

http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1453292591

"By the way, while we’re talking Ultra HD, I contacted our friends over at Oppo Digital to see if they have any plans for the format. As many of you know, Oppo players are favorite by a lot of people – especially industry insiders – for their quality and feature set. The bad news is that they have nothing to announce at this time. But the good news is that they are developing an Ultra HD Blu-ray player and hope to have one ready for shipping in time for the holidays. I’m told that they really want to take the time to get it right. So there to go."

Some UHD Blu-ray titles were finally put up on JB's website a short while ago:

https://www.jbhifi.com.au/movies-tv-shows/movies/pre-order-movies/?p=1&s=releaseDate&sd=2&fc=*_sATTRIB-2133_s%3A%3A4K%20Ultra%20HD%3B&mf=*_sATTRIB-2133_s&fm=false

The Fox UHD Blu-ray's that come out next week are currently more expensive from JB HiFi than they are from Ezydvd, which surprises me a little, however the Roadshow/Warner Brothers UHD titles are quite reasonably priced at the moment. Lego Movie is currently priced at $19.98, and San Andreas and Mad Max: Fury Road are $24.98 each.

Can't you just play them on an Oppo until a good 4K player comes out?

No

you can play the BR disc on your current BR player, some will "upscale" the BR to 4K, but no, not the 4K disc

tentative release date is 18/5 anyway, JB may have players by then

A poster @ WP received this reply from Pana;

"I’m sorry, but the DMP-UB900 is not scheduled for release for the Australian market. Sorry for the inconvenience."

... not looking good for a release date here yet. :hmm:

You want to sell that Oppo before overnight they are relegated to $300 fodder and replaced by the UHD players

Well I've now officially joined the 4K UHD BD disc owners without players club with my first Amazon shipment of 7 discs including The Revenant having arrived today. I'm now waiting for Amazon UK to ship me a Panasonic player which should happen in the second week of May (fingers crossed). It will be interesting to see what is announced locally on Thursday and over the next couple of weeks.

I posted this in another topic but is kind of relevant to this topic too

Does anyone know if JB or any other retailers to trade ups for OLED TV's?

Would prefer the HDR 65EF950T over the 65EG960T seeing 4K Bluray players say your TV needs to be HDR or it's waste of time watching 4K Blurays on a TV that's not HDR even if it is 4K.

Or is that a myth and 4K Blurays are far superior to 1080p Blurays on the 65EG960T even without HDR?
