Now that they've removed 10 of the Voom channels. Is the Ultimate package worth $10.00?
I hope that they plan to drop the price for this package because it's NOT worth $10.00.
Very true. Just wondering if Dish would throw that bone to HD Ultimate after starving the poor pup. Either that or TMC HD (one of the other rumored uplinked channels). The ONLY reason I would even begin to speculate on that would be because the West Coast feeds for each of those networks(Encore and TMC) are in the AT 250. They are able to pull the west feeds out of the movie packs for the AT250, perhaps they would be able to pull the east coast feeds for the HD Ult.I would assume that anyone paying for Starz and encore would get any HD encore channels. Of course I should not assume so much.
With the Ultimate HD package you get the following extra HD channels:
Universal HD, MGM HD, WFN HD, NHL HD, HDNet Movies, NBA HD and Smithsonian HD. Are those worth $10.00? Only you can answer that question.
The Multi Sport package gets you the RSN from out of your area but you won't see the out of your area Pro Sports games. Since you don't have 129 connected you are not getting all of them.
I don't think any of the Superstations is in HD but someone will correct if I'm wrong.
My bill says the Ultimate is $20.00. Where are you getting the $10.00? I thought Dish was keeping five of the Voom channels. I like Equator and Rave and can't find them now. Did I miss something along the way?
HD ultimate is $20 a month. If you can live without the remaining 7 channels (Universal HD, MGM HD, WFN HD, NHL HD, HDNet Movies, NBA HD and Smithsonian HD), you can get HD Essential for $10 a month and still get the rest of your current HD line-up.
The last 5 Vooom channels went dark at midnight last night.
