Engadget HD Podcast 294 - 04.10.2012

This week on the Engadget HD podcast it's not all about Netflix -- it just seems that way. The streaming company has new apps out on the Xbox 360 and coming to TiVo, but we're also going to be busy talking about surround sound and possible reasons why more people don't use it. Other streaming services were busy too, with Comcast opening up HBO Go on the Xbox 360, Amazon on the PS3 and Universal Studios in Apple's iCloud. Later on we'll check out a few new receivers and discuss what we'll be watching this week.
