You count the demo channel , interesting, and also you count cbs twice- cbs-hd through dish and throught ota. Good math man. With that kind of math im sure i get about 70 channels through voomTahoerob said:Not really true.
Full HD for me with Dish would be:
HDNet, HDMovies, Discovery HD, ESPN-HD, HBO-HD, SHO-HD, TNT-HD, PPV HD, Events/NBA HD, Demo HD, CBS-HD
That is a total of 11 channels. Thus really adding 1 to current 10 = 10%!!!!!!
Now if you factor in OTA HD that I get (PBS x 2, CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX), you need to add another 6 channels.
Thus, I really have 17 HD channels via my Dish 921
Keep in mind that TNT-HD, PPV-HD, and Events/NBA-HD all share the same transponder, and Dish is probably only going to do two at any given time. In other words, when they do a HD Events or NBA-HD program, they'll likely take away the HD-PPV. Thus, the net gain at any given time is zero, although it is an improvement in the sense that TNT-HD will be on all time, compared to HD Events, which was rarely used.HDNet, HDMovies, Discovery HD, ESPN-HD, HBO-HD, SHO-HD, TNT-HD, PPV HD, Events/NBA HD, Demo HD, CBS-HD

Sean Mota said:I do not know if at this point VOOM will make it or not. I will always said time will tell. However, the persistent failure of VOOM by a few can only mean one thing -- the failure of HD. It is so easy to say "Voom is doom" but what we fail to realize is that "Voom is doom" = "HD is doom".
The success of VOOM can only be good for HD enthusiasts. It brings competition to the table and gives other providers cable or satellite incentive to get into competition.
