Another week, another breaking news item just in time for us to discuss on the podcast and weren't we lucky to have Home Media Magazine's Chris Tribbey filling in the third seat this week to try and make sense of Wal-mart's purchase of VUDU. Other industry shakeups include the Redbox & Warner deal, Sezmi's retail launch and possible release dates for Avatar on Blu-ray disc. After that we dig into whether HDMI 1.3 will support 3D, the future for Media Center Extenders, some TiVo news and finally what's wrong with the Olympics and why NBC doesn't care what you or we think.
