Engadget HD Podcast 205 - 07.21.2010

Trent Wolbe

This weeks show gets kicked off with some Blu-ray news as the details of two anticipated titles are reveled and then discussed as well as an very influential classic. Of course 3D comes up as we cover the update for PowerDVD, ESPN's first 3D broadcast that was produced in house and the worst channel ever. In PS3 news we talk its 3D limitations and its new found ability to stream Hulu Plus content. That wasn't the only Sony news though as we covered in depth how much (some of us) like the new Sony HD camcorder. Oh, and then do we ever get our soap box and let the world know how we feel about AllVid and those who appose it. We round the show out covering a few content related topics including Netflix coming to Canada, streaming devices and the first licensing deal for XStreamHD.
