Philips will bundle the Ultra HD Blu-ray disc "Creed" with its new BDP7501 when the player is released later this month. The "Creed" 4K Ultra HD combo pack includes an Ultra HD Blu-ray version of the film with HDR, a Blu-ray disc, and a digital HD version. The BDP7501 player will carry an MSRP of $399.95, and the "Creed" promotion will run through September 30.
P&F USA, a Philips brand license partner, has announced that the Ultra HD Blu-ray version of "Creed" from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be bundled with the new Philips BDP7501 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, on sale later this month.
P&F will offer the "Creed" Ultra HD (UHD) Blu-ray Combo pack as a bonus with purchase of the Philips BDP7501 from June through September. The Combo Pack includes an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with HDR, a Blu-ray disc with the feature film and special features in HD, and a Digital HD version of the feature film.
The new Philips BDP7501 plays back content at four times the resolution of HD Blu-ray players for a stunningly detailed image. And with HDR support, content played on an HDR TV, such as any Philips 2016 4K Ultra HD set, delivers images with startling brightness, contrast and color.
"We're very pleased to offer buyers of our new Ultra HD Blu-ray player the opportunity to immediately enjoy all of the benefits that 4K and HDR provide by including 'Creed' with the purchase of the player," said Karl Bearnarth, executive vice president, sales and marketing, P&F USA, Inc., the exclusive North American licensee for Philips consumer televisions and home video products. "4K Ultra HD Blu-ray provides consumers with the opportunity to own and enjoy stunning 4K content without the glitches that can occur when streaming large 4K files, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's UHD release of 'Creed' delivers the full benefit by combining 4K resolution with the brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors that HDR provides."
"Creed" explores a new chapter in the "Rocky" story and stars Sylvester Stallone. For his portrayal of Rocky Balboa in "Creed", Stallone was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.
The Philips BDP7501 will be available later this month at a suggested retail price of $399.95, and will include the "Creed" Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack through September 30.
