Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012Rumors that Microsoft's plans for its next console could turn it into a Blu-ray and whole-home DVR super set-top box lead off a console-heavy into to this week's podcast, as we also check out the new Paramount Movies app and Netflix for the Wii U. If speed is what you're about, Verizon just raised its limits (and its prices), while the DOJ is looking into cable vs. online video -- we'll let you know when to get excited. We also have a heads up on where to catch the new Dolby Atmos audio technology, and a peek into the future with TiVo/Paypal and Dish.
