VOOM had really expensive upfront costs at company startup....then they switched to a really cheap ($0) upfront costs promotion that will soon expire (05/31/2004). I'm wondering what kind of promotion VOOM will offer come June 1. I hope they continue to have deep pockets and take the monetary hit for now until they can build up their customer base. I couldn't pass up the $0 and will getting VOOM installed next week. Same goes for a fellow employee at my work.

Is it the $0 down lease program that expires on 5/31/04 or is it the pricing for basic and vavavoom that expires on 5/31/04? I looked at their website and it is not clear to me. If V* gained 5000+ subs in two months, it was due to the $0 down lease program. If this is taking away, they will need to replace it with something better or similar in value. I do not think they can go back to the $750 installation deal. It will be suicide! June will be an interested month to say the least.

I would think it was for the $0 down because when I sing up for it I was told I was locked in untill the end of the year at $39.90

Exactly! They may as well start digging thier grave if they do this as they will have taken the only real incentive away for many to make the switch.

I don't think it's the 0 down as I just saw a new commercial promoting it this morning.

I think that they will probably run some kind of $99 dollar deal for install and box and recover the costs in a slight increase in programming fees. Their best approach is the deals they are running with the purchase of a high-def TV.

I know the local cable company here charges about $100 dollars to come out and just plug in a HD box. Than the HD box is rented per month along with the service(s).
