Hulu, Blockbuster, Kaleidescape and Amazon form an odd group of digital video distributors, but they're joined together to open this week's podcast. While Amazon's Lovefilm is HD ready on the PS3 for the first time, Kaleidescape is bringing Blu-ray quality downloads to owners of its high end hardware, Hulu is thriving under unlikely circumstances and Blockbuster... what is Blockbuster doing? Paid subscription rumors for YouTube, news about Comcast's X1 DVR platform are also on deck, press play for the full run down.
