HDBeat Podcast 020 - 07.04.06

Ben Drawbaugh
Just another week here at HD Beat as we crank out our 20th podcast. To be fair we record it the day before so it's not like were working on a holiday. Once again we discuss the latest format war and Matt share some first hand retail experiences with Blu-ray. The one guy who did buy one returned it when his wife found out. I rant about DIRECTV's inability to release new National HD channels MPEG4 or other wise, meanwhile Comcast and Dish continue to add national channels.(Atleast in Chicago) We also make a request for listeners to write in for a chance to be a co-host on a upcoming podcast. So get your emails in before the deadline this Saturday.
