Cablevision (CVC) will report earnings for Q1 on May 5, 2004. During the last report they gave the Voom subs count = 1600 something. Take a guess at what you think they will report this time.

I am curious whether they still count cancelled subs in their numbers however.

I still say the amount of people dropping off voom is outnumbering the subscribers. :)

Let's just ponder the math behind your post for a moment shall we? :eek: I see spelling isn't a strong suit either.

:p

What math is there to ponder subdude212? Should I give you some dy/dx function in Calculus to figure the rate of change?

Numbers would be higher if they would have added Espn. But I think it should be over 10,000. If it isnt then I would consider that a disappointment.

I do not see how they will spin off Voom with cable stations to keep it afloat if the number of subs is not at least 10k. If it is not well over 10k I see a very strong call from wall street for the Voom satellite and transponders to be sold off. Who wants good money making cable channels to leave your stock to go support a sinking ship?

I hope voom comes in 20k+ to at least keep it alive.

Please do, I excel at calculus, differential equations and beyond. By your hypothesis the tub is emptying at a rate faster than it is filling. So where do you get your facts? your numbers to support such a radical opinion? By your calculation on what date will VOOM have 0 customers given the current rates of change? On what date do you figure the rate of cancellations first exceeded the rate of adds? When do you plan to cancel? Or did you even subscribe?

They may have one less by the end of next week. Their decisions are starting to piss me off.

Voom advertises on HD Net all the time...which is good and bad, it reaches a ton of HD Customers but of course then they find out that they can't watch HD Net when they get Voom :(

I saw alot of Voom commercials, in fact the first one was when the services was 749 for the hardware, I was going to go home and order it until I saw the price.
