"Some sources also speculated Tuesday night that the Weinsteins could also be laying the groundwork to develop a further relationship with IFC parent Rainbow Media Enterprises, which is slated to be spun off by New York-based Cablevision Systems this year. The revamped Rainbow Media will include the Voom satellite TV division, other cable nets including AMC and the Clearview Cinemas theater chain. The Weinsteins have expressed an interest in developing a Miramax cable presence, and the nascent Voom division also is seeking content packages."

Interested information Sean. Thanks for posting. You know people here and other places think that it is easy to get a hold on film rights. I really admire these guys at VOOM because they are really trying to get their hand in as much as possible. It is not easy to do this as it cost money and time and establishing relationships. I like to see "Y Tu Mama Tambien" in HD. IFC holds the films right to this I believe. Heck, I would like IFC to go HD, it will be a very good channels as well.
