    voom has a new promotion

    So does this mean they extended the $1 installation past march 1? I couldn't find a date on it. I'm moving out of this apartment into a townhouse at the end of March and I'll finally have line of sight.

    What chanels will be added?

    Go away.... Can we implement an age limit? Or maybe add "blow n go" to members computers so after .08 they'll just shut off?

    VOOM Commercial (shown in HD) on DiscoveryHD

    I would have to say if I kept a tally all of the commercials I see, I see VOOM more than any other. It plays every hour I think on Discovery HD. I've been seeing it a lot lately on other channels too.

    2 More Weeks!!

    Well Tivo has 2.3 million subscribers and they figure half of them are Directv subs. That doesn't take into account tivo owners who have a standalone tivo and use it with directv, but it's a good rough estimate.

    just thought that I would point this out

    I guess its ok depending what you're looking for. It's not highly populated and I haven't come across any "experts" or people in the know. There is another site and the admin there seems to be a big voom chearleader. I haven't found anything to compete with avs or...

    Another Take on Dolan's Move

    I have a hard time believe that carraige agreements are in place. Look at the lack of hd content and bandwitch already on d* and e*. I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe they'll add 21 channels. It seems to me that this would be the ultimate goal, but critical mass for hdtv is...

    Interesting Comcast news

    This is just bizarre. All of this excitement over comcast is just plain crazy. I have comcast now and aside from the hd dvr, which other cable companies have, they've got nothing. What I had with Time Warner- inhd, inhd 2, hdnet, hdnet movies, tnt-hd, espn hd, discovery hd, pbs-hd What I...

    Installation moved up to tomorrow!

    Well the installer who called me last night to move up the appointment did not show up this morning. Oh well, looks like dish network it is. A free hd reciever, free dual room dual tuner dvr for the two bedrooms, no commitment, and free installation is too hard to pass up.
