If the answer is yes to both, this may be the player I will get, despite the added cost.
Any other 4K compatible apps? Ultraflix, for example?
I'll answer my own question here. I went to Panasonic's website, and Amazon Video is nowhere to be found. To be more certain, I did an online chat there as well, and the rep confirmed no Amazon Video (of any type, let alone 4k!), and had no information on whether or not it would be a possible addition down the road.
So, if one wants a UHD BD player, that can also handle Amazon and Netflix in 4k/UHD/HDR, the only option that comes close is the Samsung (which I understand does not yet have Netflix in HDR, but which may be coming). For various reasons, I am not interested in the Samsung (you can read through it's thread to get some idea about this).
And as I've documented elsewhere, the Roku 4 gives me a red/magenta push for 4k content from Netflix and Amazon, at least through my Marantz SR7010 and JVC RS400 projector.
So unless you have a 4K/HDR TV with built-in apps, there isn't a current way to get 4K/HDR content from both Amazon and Netflix, in a UHD/BD Player. Hopefully things will change, or Roku 4 will get theirs fixed (or come out with a newer and better model).
As I told the Panasonic guy, I'm just not willing to pay double what other UHD BD Players cost for their player, and still not have Amazon at all, let alone 4K/HDR Amazon!
