New BBC HD channels and the future of TV in Podcast 348

As the BBC goes HD, Netflix reinvents the TV series, and BT and Sky square off, what's the future of television -- and is Apple in it?

Do not adjust your set: as the BBC adds more HD, BT and Sky square off, and Netflix reinvents the TV series, we ask what's the future of television -- and is Apple worth watching?

Apple has long been rumoured to be working on some kind of TV device. But a bunch of companies are already mixing things up in the world of telly: is this the start of the goggle box's renaissance?

Plus, we take a peek at the HTC One Mini, check out the eye-popping price cuts on the Microsoft Surface and get sporty with the professional gamers now officially recognised as athletes.

Then we turn on and tune in to your questions. Will we build phones the way we build PCs today? Is Blinkbox worth it for Game of Thrones? And what's the best way to hold a pastie?

If that sound like your idea of a great time, you can get this podcast and all our latest news, reviews and videos in your pocket with the CNET Global app for your iPhone and iPad or Android device.
