Engadget HD Podcast 248 - 05.10.2011

Trent Wolbe

On this week's podcast we investigate what does TV ownership really mean and then deal with the shocking news that TiVo and Comcast have teamed up, again. A quick look at the revised InfiniTV 4 is also in store before considering this weeks poll question, as well as the WatchESPN app being available on Android. YouTube's taken a bigger position in the movie rental business but Netflix is still king so we're wondering who has the best Watch Instantly streamer. The last week also brought news of cheaper 3D glasses from Samsung and its massive 75-inch TV, while the PSN is still down and Sony's finally doing something about it. Intel's WiDi is finally HDCP compatible, which is good, because now you can stream your new Star Wars or Eastbound & Down Blu-rays once they arrive later this year but until then, you can just click play and listen to us talking HD for a while.
