Why hasn't the prices for 4k Blu Ray players come down as fast as the original blu ray players?
A more niche market: less demand for them.
I'd say that has to be it. Half the major manufacturers have dropped out of UHD players entirely, at least in the US. I suppose in five years BR players might (or not) be generally replaced with UHD ones, but not yet.
I hate to say it, but in five or more years, many consumers may choose not to replace failing optical drives (whether DVD or BD) at all. Just like we got to a point where customers abandoned their VHS tapes rather than replacing the VCR (or even hooking the VCR up to a newly purchased TV), there may come a point where many consumers don’t replace disc players because of how much streaming had taken over.
I will be keeping a optical disc player in my home theater as long as possible even though I have an Apple TV in my home theater!
Yes isn't it!
Seems weird with 4k TV's dropping prices like a stone.
I will stay with optical media in any form (regular or 4k blu ray) regardless.
Because many people aren't even watching 4K discs, they're streaming their 4K stuff. Well, some of them are streaming 4K stuff because I think there is a large segment not even taking advantage of 4K material at all.
