Oh, does are favorite topic really get going again this week, as there's enough Blu-ray news to fill up half the show. Seriously, how could we resist talking about all the new Blu-ray players from Pioneer and Panasonic? Then there was the whole Blu-ray sales are bad, news that really wasn't news. And finally, the 8th reincarnation of the Xbox 360 Blu-ray rumor. But that's not all we talked up, as iTunes goes day-and-date with DVD and Sezmi looks for a market, then finally we were impressed at the lengths some local news channels will go, to do its part in spreading awareness about the digital transition.
