Engadget HD Podcast 226 - 12.07.2010

Trent Wolbe

After a long holiday break we're back, kicking things off with our 3DTV roundup, plus taking a look at Panasonic's exclusive Avatar deal. Then it's on to the dream world of Inception on Blu-ray and the unfulfilled fantasy of a Japan's 2022 World Cup bid, before diving into the recent Comcast, Netflix and TiVo news. Google TV also gets some discussion time, with a new Netflix app leaking out, a sweet Kevin Bacon ad, HTML5 and the possibility of new manufacturer support from Samsung, VIZIO and Toshiba. We'll wrap things up by wishing HP's Windows Home server lineup farewell and taking a look back at the Black Friday that was.
