Because we covered more than a week's worth during the last podcast, this one is shorter. But to make it up to you guys, we've brought in a special guest -- Jason Unger from CE Pro -- to lend his expertise to the conversation, especially regarding digital downloads versus physical media. We kick off with news from DirecTV -- the new bird is flying, but won't be speaking for a while. Meanwhile, non-"big four" networks are starting to show up in the DirecTV lineup (at least in Ben's neck of the woods). We got our hands on PS3's new BD-Live functionality, and it was a total "meh," but we can all hope for more interesting functionality from the technology in the future. At long last, Joe Kane's Digital Video Essentials has shown up, and it gives the HD DVD fans one last stick in the Blu-ray's eye. We wrap up with a long discussion on the aforementioned topic of download versus physical media, sparked by remarks from THX's Chief Scientist. A special thanks to Jason for coming on the show -- we couldn't have done it without you, Jason!
