Engadget HD Podcast 330 - 01.03.2013

Welcome to 2013, and with CES nearly upon us, we have returned with a new podcast episode to wrap up all the pre-show releases and get ready for what's to come. All the new LG 4K, OLED and laser projector stuff? It's in here, and Samsung's display teases too. We'll even discuss Ben's DirecTV Genie DVR review and the odds of whether the rumored pay-for-only-the-channels-you-want Intel "virtual cable" service launches soon (probably not). The next time you hear from us we'll be coming live from Las Vegas, right now you can press play for our official preview episode.

Hosts: Ben Drawbaugh (@bjdraw), Richard Lawler (@rjcc)

Producer: James Trew (@itstrew)
