Well Cablevision's 4Q numbers should be out about February 10th. I am sure the board wants a sale before then. Lets hope this gets wound up soon.

Having been a subscriber to all three services (currently D*, 7 years) my two cents is only if I don't have to pay for it. Voom GAVE ME their service for 2 month free and I cancelled because it was so bad. I don't know if things have changed at all recently.FrankJo said:The most ironic thing is that no one over in the d* or e* forums is talking about voom, which makes me wonder how much real interest there is in it, and what's going on.
I already know we're interested in it. Hell , i'm interested in it and i don't even subscribe anymore.
Walter L. said:Wow, 81 members and 94 guests on-line. I wonder how many of those "guests" are financial reporters or SEC officials monitoring what the heck is going on here.
That means that you're liable. Be prepare to spend big $$$ on lawyers, the SEC officials may call you first for testimony :shockedbruce said:Well I started this thread, I have to see what it will mutate into.

What can the industry learn from the mistakes made by
Cablevision's satellite TV service? By Phillip Swann
On your March article you predicted that "Cablevision eventually will sell Voom's assets to either DIRECTV or EchoStar, perhaps as early as the end of the year.
Then on your November article you changed your predition to "I predict that Cablevision will close Voom or sell it to
EchoStar in the first six months of 2005 (if not sooner)."
How can you change your prediction? If you're in the prediction business and you want to establish credibility you can't simply change based on what happen. Also, I notice that you use words like PERHAPS and EVENTUALLY in your predictions; again, you shouldn't do that if you want to establish some credibility.

@ avg $99/month/sub that is 59,595 subs.
@ avg $75/month/sub that is 78,667 subscribers.
It would actually be higher since they only had 26,000 in September.
[Edit: Damnit, I forgot about ad revenues!!!]

Now, yes I agree, it doesn't matter because it is publically available at Newsweek website. But at the time that I made that post it wasn't available anywhere else.vurbano said:The freakin memo is published already, it doesnt matter anymore
