Engadget HD Podcast 344 - 04.09.13


Sony kicked off NAB 2013 with some closer-to-mainstream-than-expected 4K pricing announcements, so that's where we'll begin. Is it time to consider buying an Ultra HDTV, and is it worth even thinking about at the 65- and 55-inch sizes? We've also got our review of the Roku 3 to discuss, Netflix's House of Cards on Blu-ray this summer, plus our plans to abandon everything and move to Austin, Texas.

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

Producer: James Trew (@itstrew)
