Engadget HD Podcast 234 - 01.25.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week on the Engadget HD Podcast we kick things off by encouraging everyone to make sure their favorite gadgets are nominated for the 2010 awards. Afterwards, we dive into the recently approved NBC/Comcast deal as well as TiVo's new deal with Charter and its iPad remote app. XBMC was in the news as well, showing up on the Apple TV and iPad, while online movie service Netflix and Vudu also took up some of the limelight. Connected TVs were next up, with Samsung's app store passing two million downloads, Opera heading to Sony's TVs and Amazon purchasing all of Lovefilm. We close things out with some quick Star Wars Blu-ray news and our weekly poll that asks how many remotes our readers are using.
