Before we take in Thanksgiving and all the football it has to offer, we've got this week's podcast episode. The new Wii U represents Nintendo's official entry into the HD age, so of course we'll discuss it, however with many of its TV-centric features arriving only recently or still awaiting their debut, we still have our doubts. Amazon and Netflix both continue to make moves in subscription streaming, and Google Fiber is finally rolling out across the land. Of course, it's already time for a CES preview and we're ready for the latest Ultra HD news from Samsung (and even a breaking update from Sony.) Press play to find out what's up this week in everything from 4K to Formula 1.
