Trent Wolbe

First things first, this is the last podcast for 2010, we'll check you out next live from CES 2011 in two weeks. That said, have you entered our Inception Blu-ray giveaway yet? Give the podcast a listen while you do, as we first dig into the good news/bad news/good news week for Google TV, future projects for LG and a new ScoreCenter app from ESPN for HDTVs. Next we'll dig into the possibility of DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket on various connected TV platforms, the latest version of XBMC plus a new Blu-ray player from Oppo. The latest in 3D is NBA games and passive displays from VIZIO and LG, and while FiOS sneaks out its latest update Suddenlink is busy explaining what you won't see on their TiVo boxes and why. We'll wrap tings up with our most recent poll results, until next time, let us know in the comments what you're hoping to hear about from Las Vegas.
