Philips to finally bring Blu-ray to UK Philips has finally confirmed that it will be releasing a Blu-ray player in the UK, however if you are expecting it soon, you will be disappointed. The company will be releasing the BDP7200 in October meaning consumers will have to wait over 7 months for the player.
Making the news even more disappointing is the fact that the player will only support Blu-ray Profile 1.1 despite that fact that its American counterparts will already support 2.0 by then. The company could not even confirm that the player would have an Ethernet port, meaning an update to Profile 2.0 via the internet might not happen ever.

The player is the first the UK will see from Philips, and sports 1080p Resolution, multi-channel audio decoding and digital audio optical outputs.

if the tech specs are correct about this player ( and I dont see how anyone can confidently report on them 8 months before release date ) it will come and go unnoticed.
