Engadget HD Podcast 341 - 03.19.2013

Hopefully you tuned into our Engadget HD panel from Expand this weekend, as we kick off this week's podcast discussing some of the topics covered by our guests from TiVo, Sling and Boxee. We also cover Verizon's proposal to pay stations based on how much its subscribers actually watch them, as well as what the future holds for Panasonic's plasma production and Sharp as a whole. Also notable are Fox's plans for a new 24-hour sports channel and news that Netflix may bring 4K streaming sooner than you think, press play to find out more about that and a couple of The Killing spoilers as a bonus.

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

Producer: James Trew (@itstrew)
