'Tis the season for streaming video to your latest new gadget and the good news we kick this week's show off with is that both Hulu and Netflix dropped the price of their streaming services. We basically agree that Netflix's new pricing is intended to push disc fans to renting less discs from Netflix. After that, we continue the streaming topic, discussing the new TiVo Premier app for the iPad, the new SlingPlayer, and yes, even portable broadcast TVs and why we'd want one. We round things out with a few reviews and bring things home by reminding you that there won't be a show next week.
