Arrow Samsung Quits 4K Blu-ray Player Market

Samsung Quits 4K Blu-ray Player Market

Samsung has confirmed to me today that it is no longer going to be making any new models of 4K Blu-ray player.

Rumors that this was going to happen have been circulating for months. One or two dealers let slip that they’d been told not to expect any more players, and new 4K Blu-ray player models were conspicuously absent from Samsung’s stands at both the IFA show in Berlin last August and the CES in Las Vegas in January.

With so many people electing to use netflix, Amazon Prime and other streaming sources it's becoming less cost effective to buy vs streaming manufacturers are opting out of research and building players. I still buy reference movies for my Oppo.

Well we knew these days were coming. There is hope still have CDS, DVDs Blu-ray. Studios seem to love 4k .So that leaves Panasonic,Sony, LG ,Phillips for players, Hope this isn't a trend happening ,I'm buying as many 4k discs and blu-rays as I can. I'm still not buying into this streaming stuff, I get it,,But to me discs blow streaming away in pq and sound.

I'm sure Panasonic and Sony will hang in there.

This is a pity, but Sony 8K is also worth looking forward to.

What ? It's way too early , no content, everything will be upscaled .The 8K blu-ray players will be all upscaled players. If you buy a 8K tv now , by the time tv's come out where people can afford one the 8k tv you get now will be useless. And please don't even think of saying the words future proof because that's a myth , nothing is future proof. Also 8K is years away from a consumer market. Amazon and Bestbuy will stock a few but that's it. Tech is being way to rushed ,it confuses people ,it's bullshit. With 4K we still don't 60 fps with games and movies like they promised Movies are still 24p and Hollywood is still shooting in 2k,And upscale to 4K. It's crazy and companies are going to shoot themselves in the foot and have warehouse full of 8k tv's they can't sell.
