Engadget HD Podcast 184 - 03.23.2010

Trent Wolbe

After our Lost discussion last week, we're right back at it with Avatar Blu-ray & DVD release news to open this week's show. That's just the start for 3D news, with new content and providers popping up almost daily, but how much will it all cost? After that we dig into the latest updated on Netflix streaming for the PC and why we're not worried about ICT. After that there's cable news with compression, CableCARD and TiVo before some healthy unfounded speculation about what Google can do to the set-top box market. Finally we figure out if people really do love NBC's Olympics tape-delay and who is (or is not) watching Life on discovery, and why.
