Engadget HD Podcast 252 - 06.07.2011

Trent Wolbe

A shortened week cut our number of topics, but with E3 and WWDC kicking off this week there's still plenty of news to discuss, starting with Microsoft's new UI for the Xbox 360 and the increased integration of live TV feeds. We speculate a bit on which TV providers will be first to join in on the console, before investigating the sudden price drop on InfiniTV 4 CableCARD tuners. Netflix has of course forced its way into the spotlight again, while Samsung has an innovative new app for its Galaxy S II and Mitsubishi's officially unveiling its biggest DLP yet. To close things out we've got a new poll question and reflections on our recent review of the LG LW5600 HDTV.
