It looks like an error - £150 cheaper to buy the soundbar with the free 4K Blu-ray player. To buy it separately the cheapest I can see is £628 and you don’t get the deezer offer which looks to be just currys.
(Plus if you are buying a tv you get cashback too. )

Interesting. So you can only get 4k uhd from a disc then? Why the hell am i paying sky and Netflix for UHD then. I might just get this overpriced bluray player and then buy movies and TV shows on Bluray when i want to watch something. OH also, do they sell the football games on bluray UHD ?

You are watching UHD at a heavily compressed bitrate.
Not really the same...

I don't deny this is expensive for what it is though :P

Not all 4K UHD delivery methods are created equal. Netflix in particular is heavily compressed for obvious reasons.

I was thinking that last night - my son was watching something from Netflix last night (a cartoon), and the picture quality was awful.

There is a place for physical media as well as streaming - I still buy books, DVDs, BluRays and CDs - because I like owning physical copies with booklets and addons that you don't get with digital media.

he never said you can only get 4k uhd from a disc. who knows what you are paying sky and Netflix for

4k bluray has the best quality as it has bitrates up to 128Mbps compared to Netflix which is approximately 16Mbps for 4K HDR. bluray also gives HD multichannel audio, which is far higher quality than any current official streaming service. so better picture and sound. standard 1080p blurays can have up to 40 Mbps bitrate, so over twice as much as Netflix 4k HDR and again with HD multichannel audio

Everything you stream is not 4K ,they say it is but it's not true 4K you would experience on a Uhd disc ....4K Netflix is like 1080 p with hdr

You might as well, but only if you want the best audio and video quality.

What even is a disc?
Compared to a ps4 pro or xbox one x 4k drive how does it compare?

PS4 Pro won’t play 4k discs.

Oppo 203 all the way but crazy £££

I’ve heard Xbox One X can be noisy during quiet scenes but you get more for your money with gaming on top.
Another reason I buy discs is that you may get extras which may not be on streaming/dd services and if it’s something I like there’s no risk of it being removed from the service or I’ve cancelled the subscription,
Extras? (lol). Who wants to watch Harvey Weinstein in 4k ?

Who mentioned Harvey?

BTW, when your broadband goes down (cos BT/Virgin/... are so reliable) I hope you enjoy your streaming services.

Does this question need to arise on every single 4K player post?
