Engadget HD Podcast 342 - 03.26.2013

This week we'll discuss several Ultra HD displays, some of which can be purchased (Samsung's $40K 85-inch LCD and JVC's $261K 8K projector) and some that can't, like Microsoft's sweet 120-inch demo unit. We also take a peek at Sonos' new soundbar, and the changing media landscape with news and rumors about HBO Go, BBC iPlayer, and even our old friend Intel.

Hosts: Ben Drawbaugh (@bjdraw), Richard Lawler (@rjcc)

Producer: James Trew (@itstrew)
