I was looking on the Sears website and found this promo about VOOM.
It says ESPN-HD will be on VOOM as a premium channel. I certainly
hope this is true. We heard before that ESPN will not be on VOOM.
Let's hope it is correct, and not a mistake by Sears. See this :

I called the 800 number!
Actually talked to a live person. He said that I will basically need to wait until the 10/15 date to truly get more info online & at a local Sears store.
He confirmed the $749 price for: OTA antenna, receiver ("with THE LATEST technology"), DBS dish, installation.
Interesting that they are INCLUDING an OTA antenna! I asked whether they would discount my already having one, and he stated that he believes NOT.
Well I guess I will have to wait until 10/15.

And Sears is going to have an Apex 43" HD projection tv on sale next week for $800 (normally sells for $1,000). that means you could get this tv and the Voom satellite system with installation and OTA antenna for $1,549 in which is only $50 more than Dish's HD deal for their HDTV and HD satellite setup.

I have an Apex DVD in my entertainment center that I bought about 3 years ago (just missed getting one with the secret menu ;) ), it has ben a good unit and has 2 sets of A/V jacks, S-Video and component Video, the newer ones only have a single set of outputs and no component Video. My 14 year old daughter has both an Apex DVD player and a 13" tv in her room and both so far have done well for a cheap DVD player and tv. Haveing said the above, Apex is good for inexpensive DVD players and tv's but I am not sure that I would trust one for my primary tv or not. :shrug:
