Default Player that doesn't support Cinavia

Okay, first, I'm sure there's other threads with this question asked and answered, but I couldn't find any new ones, so I figured I'd ask again.

Basically, here's my situation:

Currently, I have a PS3 in my bedroom, with my laptop 3 feet to the left, on my desk. I am constantly streaming video from my laptop (specifically the external HDD I have) to my HDTV (right above my PS3) and/or watching netflix directly off of my PS3. Next month, GTA 5 comes out, and I plan on getting it for PS3. Problem is, I am going to be moving my PS3 to my basement, where it is more readily available for my brother to play as well. Of course, I could get it for my 360, which is already down there, but I'd much rather get it for PS3, for several reasons. Since GTA 5 would be the only game I use for PS3, there would be no point in spending $200 on a new PS3, when all I'm doing is streaming media; a blu ray player can do that just fine, for over $100 cheaper than a new PS3, most likely. So, I have decided I will move my PS3 downstairs next month, and buy a new blu ray player to replace it in my bedroom, so I can continue streaming media. Now, the question is, what is my best option for a cinavia free blu ray player. I read that all players after 2012 have cinavia, is that right? Also, what is the best one that can play .mkv files?

I'd rather not have to deal with any programs to convert files or anything like that.

Thanks.

There is enhanced firmware for Panasonic Blu-ray players available which allows you to disable Cinavia watermark detection.

@scarchelli: Your "best option" on paper is likely an OPPO BDP-93 (which, unlike their latest player the 103, does not support Cinavia). But that may be above what you're wanting to pay.

@SimonBA: Do you mind elaborating on this firmware you refer to for Panny players that disables Cinavia? Where did you learn of this and where is it available?
