Engadget HD Podcast 236 - 02.08.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week's podcast is short and sweet, with pricing info for Panasonic's latest and greatest taking the top news slot, closely followed by an unsurprisingly lackluster launch for glasses-free 3DTVs. A pair of rumors concerning the return of old favorites in HD, and maybe even 3D, with whispers of Friends on Blu-ray and Halo: CE on Xbox 360. That's all just a prelude to a slew of streaming news from Hulu, Amazon and Comcast, before we close out with a surprising purchase by Dish Network and the latest update for Roku owners.
