You got the same package that I received on March 11, the VAVAVOOM package for two months, no extra charge.

After two months I will cancel the extra free package and select the VOOM package, we do not care for the HBO/SHOW/MAX movie channels, and to us a waste of money.

FYI:
My local Cleveland stations are 23 miles from our location, we do not receive all of the local stations. Last evening customer service ordered me an antenna upgrade, scheduled for the Mar 25th installation.

If you do not receive all your local stations, give them a call, really friendly people there!

Have been for a couple months now. I think most subs, if not all, are also getting them. Nobody seems to really know why. If it is a free preview it's an unofficial, unadvertised one. I assume that they'll disappear sooner or later -- but I've been saying that for a couple months. Enjoy them while they last!

To each his own. My personal preferences ARE the movie channels. With 10 premium HD movie channels per night plus VOOM's 11 Original movie channels we can plan a movie & popcorn per evening viewing films we maynot have seen before. And with a large screen home theater it is like going to the movies. (which I seldom do anymore). Last night's bill was "Kiss of The Vampire" & "The Ladykillers." So for some it's sports....others its movies. Whatever.....Enjoy VOOM.

Question for those watching Starz HD...are all the movies HD widescreen, or are some not? The online guide on the Voom website doesn't list them as HD. I get my Voom install tomorrow, and noticed that LOTR: Two Towers is on Starz, but at odd times of day/night. With no DVR for now, didn't want to stay up to check it out if it's not HD...

I like StarzHD and Im one of the ones who is paying for the Starz pack. Im planning on dropping it as soon as EncoreHD is dropped from the pack.

So have you seen "Two Towers" in HD? How's it look?

By the way, killer Avatar/GIF...funny stuff.

I loved Two Towers in HD. Its the reason why I added StarzHD on. EncoreHD has been a great add on to the Starz pack....but that is going bye bye on April 1st. But LOTR looks great on Starz...it's worth the 15 bucks a mth to me.

Looks like it's finally over. :(
Just tuned in to watch Prozac Nation and got the "Upgrade" message. Oh, well -- it was nice while it lasted!
