E3 is under way this week, and early presentations from Microsoft and Nintendo has already given us plenty to talk about. Between the Xbox 360s enhanced set-top box suite of apps and SmartGlass second screen demos and the Wii U GamePad's IR control they're more a part of the home theater than ever. Also in the news is Apple TV, while we take a look at what's ahead from Ultra High Definition TV in 4K or 8K and even 3DTV. We'll even touch on our good friend / punching bag TiVo, while Lovefilm is finally in the streaming fight with HD video support. Closing things out this week are a few tweaks for the Netflix iOS app and an early peek at The Avengers on Blu-ray, followed by what we're watching on TV this summer.
