LG is really getting after full support of UHD and bringing Technicolor in to boot.

Now, what about the MSRP on the 65" E7

Sony XBR65A1E

Panasonic UB820

If that includes Dolby Vision through Netflix and Vudu, I would give the LG strong consideration over the Oppo. Right now, I can only get Dolby Vision on my Vizio P65 by casting from a tablet, which is... interesting.

Hey Robert, do you know, or can you find out if the YouTube app on this unit will support YouTube HDR? I've only seen articles mention 4k YouTube so far, and I'm not sure if 4k is now assumed to include HDR.

It also plays 3D? That's a given, right?

Yes for 3D on FHD BDs. No answer yet on the Youtube HDR support on LG's UHD BD player, but yes on all 2017 LG Super UHD and OLED TVs.

I'll report back once I get a final answer on the Youtube HDR support.

The Sony X800 also plays 3D Blu-ray discs yet there aren't any 2017 TVs to watch them on.

So is it me or... *sigh*

Good news!! LG’s UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray player is Dolby Vision capable. If Dolby Vision is not available on the UP970 at launch it will be firmware upgraded shortly after release.

That's very good Robert. ... "...among the first to offer support for Dolby Vision—after a firmware update in March."

If that is a special price, do you know what MSRP will be after the promo? Just wondering.

And if you ever get confirmation about YouTube HDR support on this, please let me know. Since my display doesn't support it natively, I'm debating which DV-capable player to get in combination with another streamer like Chromecast Ultra.

Sorry I do not know MSRP. I based our $299 delivered price on my dealer net cost.

I agree and my first words to LG execs is they must have mis-marked it.

Well, if Sony does not offer it, it will give a lot of people an easier move in DV than the Oppo pricing.

Phillips also announced a DV capable UHD player starting at $299 list price at CES. Street price on the Philips players can get aggressive so I would expect sub $200 DV capable players by end of year if not sooner.
