Engadget HD Podcast 238 - 02.22.2011

Trent Wolbe

The obviously (obviously) greatest HD podcast has returned once more, to discuss interesting topics from the latest companies to stand up for AllVid, Comcast's new 24/7 3D broadcasts and Q4 results and coming to FiOS. Afterwards, we moved on to Sony's OLED pro displays and the latest Redbox rumors, and tried to make sense of Warner's iOS apps for some of its movies. Also on the movie front is Universal's Unstoppable Blu-ray, before we welcome Fox Soccer Plus HD to U-verse, and discuss one of the last prime time shows to switch to HD. Closing things out was a little Vizio news before we invite all of you to hang out with us in San Francisco this weekend, and finally bid a fond farewell to the Millers, Ross and Paul -- may their names forever stand, and always be remembered, on the road throughout the land.
