Engadget HD Podcast 389 - 3.12.14

If the Titanfall release had coincided with the start of March Madness, there probably wouldn't have been a podcast this week. As it is, we had to tear Richard away from his Xbox One to help Ben review the HD details that have been pouring in. There's a constant shuffle of content, ISP deals and updates to go through, as well as a certain monstrous LED-lit HD display to ogle. Your hosts leverage their experience and know-how to help speed you through the week's news, leaving some extra time to watch some TV. We hear Neil deGrasse Tyson and Seth MacFarlane's reboot of Cosmos has gotten some great buzz and rated an introduction by the POTUS. As always, there's plenty of HD to go around, so head on down to the streaming links to join us for this weeks episode.

Hosts: Richard Lawler, Ben Drawbaugh

Producer: Jon Turi
