Received the same email about Mexico/asia 8/10 bit. Told him I wanted the less superior c9 and he told me to call back in a few days
Called him today and connected me to the warehouse; warehouse said nothing is shipping because of COVID.
Told me he would hold the OLED and to check back in a week or two.
Check the site again and its now $2499 and sit says its closed for two days but everything will ship 4/17.
I don't mind waiting another week to save 2k but seems less likely this will happen but I will keep you updated.
also on my order status shows this

Not sure if anyone knows what
means but for whoever got the TV successfully let me know if you have any ideas.
i placed my order on 4/22 from SilverStarAV, i have the same story as everyone else.
Their website says "INSTOCK" "Ships in 24-48 hours.".
i am like COOL.
I even checked again today to see, 3 weeks later, still says its in stock.
I called their Customer Support again (first time was after 1 week to see status).
They said they are on back order (website says differently).
Talked to the gentleman today, says that the warehouse is not available to ask but to call back in 1-1.5 hours. So i will. But i have a feeling it will be the same story.
Here is the deal though, the PUB is a more generic model sold by most places. They have the AUB version which is sold by Costco and like places. They seem to have an assortment of the same model which seems odd to me since certain sub models are only made for certain resellers.
I will let you know what they say when i call them back. If i don't get an answer today, i will call again tomorrow.
Yes, i understand the whole situation with COVID-19 so i am not upset about that, that is understandable. But if its the case where they are intentionally bait and switching and they aren't releasing that product for that price, then be honest so i will look elsewhere.
