his story falls under propaganda ... not marketing :D

On the flip side of the coin I waited more than 6 weeks for my Voom de-installation and have been happily watching D* since BUT I SURE DO MISS STARZHD!!!!!! D* currently cannot match the number of HD programs offered by Voom, so it is a niche market. This will all change ... E* assimilating Voom and D* pumping more bandwidth than an Internet hooker.

Either way, I am glad you have what you want. What more can anyone ask for. (Other than StarzHD on D* :mad: )

Interesting that Slacker & Doby? find time to post.Wouldn't you guys rather be watching wonderful SD on D*? I have VOOM & D* and only keep D* because of Sunday Ticket. Let me tell you the D*HD isn't worth it. The new so-called Fox HD looks like the old wide screen DT. I'm used to surfing the HD channels. If it's crap at least it's in HD! Saw Johnny Depp today in "Arizona Dreams" a truly classic Johnny Depp film. Meanwhile "Smart Travels" has come to VOOM. Good move. Anyway, welcome back.

That would a 'testimonial' which is a marketing strategy. Propaganda is the inscessant "Voom will be out of business in 2 months" campaign some people on these forums have.

This will all change ... E* assimilating Voom and D* pumping more bandwidth than an Internet hooker.

Like this see? An unsubstantiated opinion expressed in hopes of putting down one entity and bring up another. D*'s current "bandwidth pumping" practices suggest they have other ideas in mind.

DobyMax: I think it's time you swing your peg leg around full motion, and knock that hairpiece out of your eyes. The jig is up, D*'s picture quality has been rated B for the blind. You say "nnnnnooooottt" as if you were one of the chicks at your own high school prom. I don't care how much you promote DirectMyPee on this forum, Rupert isn't going to give you a raise or a promotion, he's going to shove three of you monkeys into a single cubicle and change your computer monitors back down to EGA, ok Wilbur? Do yourself a favor and tie your shoelaces together, and hang yourself off your D* dish, and be gone. There is absolutely no reason to be here in this forum, just to repeat your posts 10,000 times, troll. I'm amazed the Satguys mods haven't banned your account already.

Nice try Webster Ubernerd, "marketing" in terms of "advertising". Way to lay the definition of "Market" up there... What was your point exactly? Oh yeah, you don't have a point other than spinning your Encyclopedia Britannica CD on your beanie and calling it a day. I guess the jokes on me for thinking you'd answer like an adult...
The original poster, gave a "testimonial" of his experience with both V* and D* (bad and good for both). Slacker hasn't been able to ... How tragic.

I'll blame slacker's propaganda as mainly DirectTV bandwagoning and Voom related mudslinging.

Accurate enough for you Mr. Trebec?
