You might have heard bout some new involving Netflix last week. Those who have already cancelled their account in protest may want to just skip past the first twenty minutes and dive directly into discussions of net neutrality, CNN "news", Stars Wars and the latest curious developments from TiVo. There is a sliver of good news however, with a firmware update for Cisco Tuner adapters finally arriving and news of an even cheaper CableCARD tuner for PCs. We wrapped things up with a quick discussion of what we're watching this week, press play and keep your remote control close by.
