Streaming victim – Samsung stops selling Blu-ray players in the US

114


Samsung will stop selling Blu-ray players on the US market, apparently a victim of the success of streaming services such as Netflix.

“Samsung will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the US market,” a Samsung spokesperson confirmed to Digital Trends. The statement implies that the company might continue to offer the devices in overseas markets like Europe.

The move should come as no surprise, as the market for physical discs is quickly disappearing with fewer titles becoming available as 4K UHD Blu-ray releases.

Earlier this month, the news broke that cloud-based movie platform UltraViolet will be closing down on July 31, 2019, a service which was envisaged to support digital storage of Blu-ray Discs.
