Got this email today, which is just strange for a company that disposed of its sole means of fulfilling its service obligations.

I got it too.

Mr. Dolan needs to stop reading his love letters from Satguys long enough to distribute some sort of press release explaining what is or isn't going on!

I got the same email today and wondered what the heck?

I almost had my dad signed up for an install till all this stuff started happening in the news about voom, so now he has decided to wait a bit...

Gotta run, I am back to watching groundhog day on 9 channels for the next 24 hours...

Hey with Groundhog day running on all 10 channels...it is like having Movie on demand. Except you only have one choice. Still funny.

Exactly...and they haven't "disposed" of or quit transmitting on Rainbow1 either.

For all we know, Voom will mirror transmission on AMC6, and start tuning everyone over to the new sat, then finally turn the keys over to E*. I'm just waiting for something good like that to happen.

I have an idea on how we could make it work, since James Dolan aka Rock Boy, is the one who brilliantly sold off Rainbow 1 I say we distract him long enough so that his father can take control again:

Maybe what I posted here is happening:
1) The Dolans buy the remaining of VOOM. Without the satellite it shouldn't be that expensive.

2) Lets's assume a period of 3-6 months of pending FCC approval during which VOOM can continue using Rainbow-1. Without stopping the broadcast on Rainbow-1, VOOM starts broadcasting all channels on Rainbow-2 (AMC-6) and using MPGE-4 (that will even allow extra capacity for new channels).

3) After Rainbow-2 is up, VOOM starts migrating customers. A single trip from the installer will re-position the dish, change the LNB and install the MPEG-4 module into the STB.
