What HD channels other than the 21 VOOM exclusives are included in the basic package?

I too ordered the VOOM basic package. Since I already get ESPN-HD and Discovery HD from DISH Network, this is the only package I really needed. I'll be dropping my Starz from DISH and adding Starz on VOOM so I can have Starz in HD.

One question, however. Does VOOM's basic package include locals OTA?

The Voom rep said Discovery HD, NFL HD and Inside Voom (Voom promotional channel) are all part of the Basic ($39.90 package). The OTA channels are free I believe with the OTA antennae on the dish (good for me, I live within a few miles of all major networks).

I would love to drop Dish and go with Voom. However, Voom is still missing a few things.

1) No DVR available yet. Anyone have a date?

2) Girlfriend requires Bravo and BBC America. Anyone have a date on these channels?

3) Is there still a possibility of Dish selling Voom's services?

Thanks.
