Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012As we kick off the 300+ episode era, we welcome a guest, Engadget's own Steve Dent, to talk about high frame rate 3D filmmaking and why (or if) we should be excited about it. Other big news in the week gone by are new developments in Amazon streaming as it launched on the Xbox 360, while Comcast's VOD is popping up on Android and more TiVos. Ultra HDTV is also closer to becoming a reality, while LG officially took the wraps off of its first OLED HDTV. We'll also dig into NBC's Olympics broadcast plans (good news for streaming, not great news for 3D), while the E.T. Blu-ray gets a trailer and we talk about what to watch for the summer.
