Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012After Google I/O, the latest news from Mountain View is tops on our list as we try to wrap our heads around the Nexus Q. Also on the list this week are the odd couple pairings of Boxee and Comcast, as well as HBO and Hulu (in Japan.) Meanwhile Dish Network and AMC have severed ties, we'll see if the relationship can be repaired before Breaking Bad season five begins. We've also got updates on Windows 8 Media Center, Verizon's new CableCARD policy, and changes for the NFL -- press play for the full run down.
