We're more excited than anyone that ABC started to cover college football games in our favorite format. One of the reasons it took so long was because of all the regional football games ABC covers.

The TelCos aren't the only one upgrading their networks, the Canadian Cable Cos have a lot of work to as well. It isn't all bad considering they only need to run fiber to their head ends vs to the customer premise. Telus Corp. plans to spend $600 million over the next three years to up grade 7000 he

China is all the rage these days, I mean they make all the great gadgets we love. Sure we design most of them, but someone has to assemble all that stuff. It is about time they are going to be able to enjoy OTA HD like we have for so long. The interesting part is that they have their own format cal

If your the type of person who hates all the HD DVD vs Blu-ray talk on the podcast then this is the week for you. We literally talk about the war for about 10 minutes. The Series3 gets most of the time as we cover how great it should be(Ben won't shut up about it) and why. We also cover some of the

We all knew the time would come when the studios would have reason to enable HDCP and it appears that it may be time. Someone correct us if we're wrong, but this device, named Intensity, looks like it will enable consumers to record via HDMI and for only $249. Considering the costs of other HD reco

It appears that our buddy Dave Zatz has been holding out on his this entire time and has the scoop on the Series 3 at the price of his soul. We don't blame him, we would have sold our soul and his to get an early look like this at the Series 3. We forgive you Dave!Almost everything we thought we kn

It seems the two formats are taking turns again, as HD DVD knocks out 8 titles, this is only the second time we have seen that many titles in one week. We're not sure where the Blu-ray love is this week, maybe they are taking the week off in preparation for Disney's first titles that are to be relea
