Engadget HD Podcast 266 - 09.20.2011

Netflix's surprise split took the top spot this week, so we dug into what this means for the company and its subscribers, especially those who prefer Blu-ray quality over streaming convenience. Closing things out is our quick preview of this week's fall TV premieres, with a few media streamers, CEDIA notes, satellite outages and Windows 8 discussion squeezed in between. We're now living in the era of Qwikster -- press play and we'll talk you through it.
