Default What is LG UBKM9?

I was surfing the LG site, I just saw something called, LG UBKM9.
Is this one 2019 4K UHD Player or what?
Or did LG mistake on typing the wrong name?

Hmmm...looks just like the UBK90. I tend to think this is the 2019 model as the specs looks the same.

Oh, ok.
Thanks for reply.
What you two said must be true.
Cause "where to buy" section doesn't list anywhere.

Walmart is selling this player for $179.99. If it is indeed the same player as the UBK90, which is going for $279 at Best Buy, this is a good deal

According to the question I asked LG on the product page, it's the same as the UBK90, just (yet again) a new model number for different retailers (or maybe just Walmart?)

Walmart does have agreements with Sony, LG, and Samsung to get their own exclusive model numbers for electronics, to allow them to sell at different prices and to give the finger to price-matching with Best Buy, Target, etc. due to the different model numbers. I don't think there's usually been any real difference between their specific offerings and the identifiable equivalents elsewhere, but I have heard reports of the number of HDMI ports on the TVs occasionally being different. I've never bought a Walmart TV, so I can't speak from personal experience.

Sorry, i haven't checked this post for a while, so i just saw your question now. it's not on the walmart website, but they sell it in the stores themselves. I purchased it, and yes, it's the exact same model as the more expensive one. It's wireless and plays dolby vision discs. Well worth the money.

I compared the picture to my sony x700 and it was virtually identical.

Look what I've found at one of my Walmart locations.
Not sure if it's just a Walmart model of the UBK90 (like how the UP875 was the Best Buy model of the UP870) or if it's really the 2019 successor to the UBK90.

Looking at the LG site, that model number shows as product.
Also, when I go to Walmart website and search that model number, it shows there too.
