Just another week here at HD Beat as we crank out our 20th podcast. To be fair we record it the day before so it's not like were working on a holiday. Once again we discuss the latest format war and Matt share some first hand retail experiences with Blu-ray. The one guy who did buy one returned it when his wife found out. I rant about DIRECTV's inability to release new National HD channels MPEG4 or other wise, meanwhile Comcast and Dish continue to add national channels.(Atleast in Chicago) We also make a request for listeners to write in for a chance to be a co-host on a upcoming podcast. So get your emails in before the deadline this Saturday.HDBeat Image
