We’ll be back with more later today, but we wanted to quickly chime in here today with additional word on Ultra HD Blu-ray out of IFA in Berlin. We understand now that Samsung’s newly announced 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player is targeted for release in the 1st Quarter of 2016 (we’re hearing late January or February). We’re also hearing that the player’s price is “going to pleasantly surprise people.”  [Read on here…]

More importantly, Fox has informed us that their initial slate of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles (with High Dynamic Range) will include Exodus: Gods and Kings, Fantastic Four, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Life of Pi, The Maze Runner, Wild, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. These will be available when Samsung’s player arrives in stores. Going forward, all new release titles will be released on UHD BD day and date with Blu-ray.

Here’s a look at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment president Mike Dunn (center) making this announcement at IFA yesterday…
