Get ready for even more Google TV talk, now that we've reviewed the platform and two Sony devices built around it, we've pulled in Engadget Classic editor Nilay Patel for this weeks podcast to discuss our experiences, impressions and what this means for the future of TV. After an hour or so of Google TV talk we turn our attention to the other news of the week, including VUDU on Boxee and 3D popping up on the PSN and Verizon's video on-demand. After discussing the impending death (as some reports would have you believe) of ESPN 3D we check out the latest developments in Warner's DVD2Blu program, and Avatar on Blu-ray 3D. The hilarious conclusion to Fox's battle with Cablevision and the slightly lower-key ending to its tiff with Dish Network also made the lineup before we wrap things up with a goodbye to Philips' Pronto remotes and sarcastically welcome Verizon's latest DVRs.
