Engadget HD Podcast 259 - 08.02.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week there are shockingly no Netflix topics on the list but what we do have to talk about is a new Best Buy TV with TiVo "Design", an update for the Apple TV and the latest in dead/not dead rumor mongering about Windows Media Center. Of course the business of TV comes into play as well, as we take a look at the latest developments with AllVid and CableCARD, the popularity of streaming vs. DVRs, Logitech's poor first quarter and AT&T's decision to drop ESPN 3D. Finally we've got a couple new ways for you to watch Engadget videos on your TV and our picks of what to watch this week.
