Sony announced the UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player last month at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas. It only said that the device will be released soon back at the event and the company has confirmed pricing and availability information for this product. Sony’s first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player is going to be available for purchase starting next month.
This is the first 4K Blu-ray player that Sony is selling to the public. The company points out that it’s compatible with “virtually every optical disc format,” including but not limited to Super Audio CD and Blu-ray 3D.
The company is going to charge $299.99 for its first 4K Blu-ray player that’s going to be available for purchase in March. Customers who are interested in purchasing one can get their pre-orders in right now.
Sony is also going to launch a new series of 4K TVs alongside the Blu-ray player in March, this includes the XBR-X800E, XBR-X850E, and XBR-X900E series with prices starting at $999.99 and going all the way up to $7,499.
Those who want more bang for their buck and but would like to have the ability to run 4K Blu-rays can opt for the Xbox One S which is a proper gaming console as well as a 4K Blu-ray player.
