Engadget HD Podcast 193 - 05.18.2010

Trent Wolbe

Netflix's newly launched HD streaming on PCs takes the first slot this week along with some healthy Lost debate (spoilers!), before we investigate several other internet video announcements from Hulu, FiOS and Comcast. Next up is ESPN 3D on comcast and Panasonic's latest news including a new Blu-ray 3D promotion. We'll check out DirecTV's Whole Home DVR launch before digging into CableCARD and HTPC news and finish up with a quick glance at Happauge's software update and how impressed we are -- or aren't -- with Kaleidascape's latest Blu-ray players.
