$399 bundle expected in stores by the end of the month
P&F USA will bundle the Ultra HD Blu-ray version of “Creed” with its Philips-brand Ultra HD Blu-ray player available later this month.
The $399-suggested Philips BDP7501, P&F’s first 4K player, will come with Warner Brothers’ “Creed” Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack through Sept. 30. The combo pack includes an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR, a Blu-ray disc with the feature film and special HD features, and Digital HD version.
“Creed” presents a new stage in the “Rocky” story and stars Sylvester Stallone. For his performance, Stallone was nominated for an Academy Award for best performance by an actor in a supporting role.
P&F USA will become the second CE supplier to offer a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player in the U.S. Samsung already offers a $399 model, and Panasonic plans to offer a model later this year. Sony has said it would offer one in its current fiscal year, which ends early next year.
