Philips Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Gets `Creed’ Bundle
Anyone who buys a new Philips branded Ultra HD Blu-ray player, being released to stores later this month by P&F USA, will receive an Ultra HD Blu-ray copy of “Creed,” the latest installment of the “Rocky” saga from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
When the Philips BDP7501 Ultra HD Blu-ray player goes on sale at a $399.95 suggested retail price later this month, the company said purchasers will receive a bundled “Creed” combo pack that includes an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with high dynamic range (HDR), a Blu-ray disc with the feature film and special features in HD, and a Digital HD version of the feature film.
P&F said the offer will extend through September.

The new Philips BDP7501 plays back content at four times the resolution of HD Blu-ray players and supports new HDR-10 metadata, for expand contrast, detail and color in support 4K Ultra HDTVs.
“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, P&F USA sales and marketing executive VP. “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, who 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.
