Home Media Magazine is reporting that Sears is planning a “Blu Friday” this November 28th, with substantial price cuts on Blu-ray hardware and software in addition to standard definition DVDs. The store will reportedly be offering on sale the Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray Disc player for $199.99 and the Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray Disc Player for $179.99.
Both units, originally Profile 1.1 players, have recently been upgraded to the full Profile 2.0 BD-Live specification via firmware updates from Samsung and Sony respectively. Both players also offer decoding of Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD and bitstreaming of those codecs and DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution via their HDMI 1.3 outputs.
