    They say late 2016 now and have a picture on their page (and I have it above.)

    Oppo is pushing it like it is. Existing technology should not cost extra just because! BD-XL - been out since 2010, H265 since 2012.

    Can it be region-free hacked?

    Lol - Player not even on the shelves yet and we're asking this.
    AFAIK it still has RS-232 access, which is how I understand the existing region mods do it.
    And it being Oppo I would suspect the firmware with regards to regular BD playback to be identical to previous models.

    I have the 103D so I suspect the new one does not do Darbee for regular BD/Dvd so I would have to wonder if I would even consider it.
    Like E! suggests though, my decision would hinge on being able to region mod it or not.

    I assume/hope the UDP-203 will play SACD and DVD-Audio discs like earlier Oppos! If so, I can sell my DBP-83 or move it to the bedroom.

    Yes I need it to play those as well.

    How are the streaming apps on the OPPOs? It's been many years since I purchased an OPPO. My last OPPO player was an SACD/DVD-A/DVD player.

    I've used the Vudu, Netflix and Pandora apps. They are all pretty reasonable although I find the Netflix app on the Amazon Fire easier to use for some reason.

    I only use Tidal and Netflix. Both are very stable...unlike Netflix on Samsung that crashes every now and then in the middle of movie.

    The built in streaming apps are fine in my 103D - it is also Roku Stick compatible as well for future expandability or for other apps you might want to add.

    A Facebook page called Reference Home Theater got in touch with OPPO and confirmed that the UHD player will have no streaming apps. Here's the quote:

    - There is no Darbee. Right now there aren't chipsets that can do the Darbee processing for UHD HDR content with HDCP 2.2. Perhaps in the future, but right now the chipset support isn't there.
    - Yes, it does DVD-A and SACD
    - The WiFi is built into the case, and it's a 2x2 802.11ac radio
    - They are doing a different video processing solution than before, but will ensure the quality for DVD and other scaling is just as good as before, if not better
    - The HDMI input on the rear has video processing
    - There will be no integrated streaming services. Adding these would take extra time for certification and they'd prefer to have the player out. It will also start faster without having streaming services built-in.

    I hope that clears up some of these questions for our readers.
    Looks like this player will supplement the 103D, not replace it.

    Im actually glad no streaming services. I use them in other media devices, like my Amazon Fire.

    Question about this bullet, Josh
    "The HDMI input on the rear has video processing"

    Umm, I'm ignorant here, what does this mean?
