Dan has summoned the team together to deliver some important news, so we have a full house today. With 65 episodes under the belt, the Eurocast is joining the likes of the HD podcast and taking a hiatus. We're restructuring how we deliver news outside the website proper and as they say, "when it's...

Has it been two weeks since we last saw you? Yep, but audio-file-munching software systems couldn't keep us away this week, so get ready. There are piles of console related tidbits on top of E3 this week, with Sony launching its PlayStation TV device in the US and Microsoft's Xbox One getting dis-...

Dan goes freestyle this week in order to liven up the joint, boost morale and woo another age bracket of listenership, perhaps. His wild stylings are nothing compared to the crew's speculation about Amazon's upcoming mobile device and its interesting array of sensor technology. While that may be s...

We're taking the elephant in the room for a ride this week and jumping right into Apple's purchase of Beats, including both its Electronics and Music divisions. Since we're back in cramped confines of our NYC "studio," that scenario is more implausible than usual, especially with our guest Edgar Al...

Welcome to the 400th HD Podcast! Similar words were typed back in February 2006, when the fledgling HDBeat Podcast was launched, with a slightly younger Ben Drawbaugh at the helm.

We're broadcasting from San Francisco this week and joined by TUAW editor-in-chief Victor Agreda Jr. and Engadget's own Sarah Silbert to talk Beats acquihire rumors and the "lapability" of the Surface Pro 3.

Things are heating up in the HD world this week, but definitely not enough to cook a pizza properly. AT&T is making a bid to buy DirecTV for a hefty sum, unless the company's NFL Sunday Ticket portion doesn't pan out, leaving them with an escape clause. Other deals afoot include the Comcast an...

It's been a long and busy week, leaving a newly nicotine-free Terrence a tad more irritable than usual. Ben's been busy too, but that just means long hours of playing Mario Kart 8. Both of these factors seem to cancel each other out and the result is a pleasant stroll through the world of Xbox One,...

Dan's getting forgetful and Sharif is squeezing in mini holidays between cloud banks, but Matt champions the concept of news, so off we go. There's the often turbulent tale of Virgin Media and Sky, and yet they've managed to extend a truce that will continue to benefit customers, while still earni...

Yep, there's more net neutrality talk this week, but look on the bright side: at least Eastbound & Down has arrived on Blu-ray. But it doesn't take a major leaguer to throw a curveball, as exemplified by Netflix's one dollar price hike for all its subscribers. The upside? If you're an existing...
