Amazon UK will ship a Panasonic to SG.
Take note of the Blu Ray regions. UHD is region free.

4K UHD Blu Ray Player

Thank you so much. Yes, fully aware about player region code, region free for UHD disc. Just curious to know besides Amazon UK who else has purchased it elsewhere in the UK.
Bought OPPO 105D Blu ray player from Anson Audio early last year. Heard OPPO will be marketing 4K UHD player in the States end of this year/early next year, maybe I'll check with Anson Audio if they intend to bring it in & sell it by then.

So far no 4K/UHD Blu ray disc spotted in retailer like Poh Kim.
4K media have to ship from Amazon, not sure will SG have
the 4K eventually.

Finally! Long time waiting... My 4k OLED TV is already 1 year old!

Looks like Amazon is the only avenue to acquire UHD Disc for now

The big stores don't really care about the software.. they know most Singaporeans are too cost conscious to buy 4k discs, but they also want a 4k player which can play DVDs and upscale to the 4k TVs that they are selling.

For the savvy few, buying 4k discs off amazon is the way to go. But at 30USD a disc, only the hobbyists are buying right now.

Since 4k discs are region free, one can buy in countries like Australia, where there are sale to help early adoption.

For the rest, they are still trying to watch pseudo-4k youtube videos...

Anyone waiting for the XBox One S to reach our shores? I heard that it's a pretty decent UHD/3D bluray, DVD and CD player, on top of that it's a big improvement over the already solid XBox One in terms of power consumption, noise and footprint, all for about S$600! Plus I believe it has 2 HDMI out ports for those who have older AV receivers like mine!

Slated to reach SG next month...time to order my UHD blurays from Amazon!

Do read online about the limitations of the X Box as a UHD player. If these issues do not bother you, or you don't have a Atmos / DTS -X system, then it's ok.

Just bought new TV, no money to upgrade sound system yet...

Looks like the XBox One S will be getting a free update that will enable Dolby Atmos:

Re

The upcoming new OPPO UDP-203 is region-locked to 'A' so cannot play multi-region normal blu ray discs.

Later model will be region unlocked to play multi-region normal blu ray discs
