RAJH said:More SD channels. Wow! Woopee!
I really don't care. I did not get Voom to watch SD channels. I suppose it is a necessary evil to satisfy the masses. I would trade in ALL of the SD channels for just one more good HD channel.
Don't you people who want hd realize that VOOM is changing their marketing FOR THE GOOD
They used to try to be the elite addon service catering to rich people (If they have HD, they must be rich).
Now, they are going for the market by taking away DTV/Dish subs by adding the same channels and a few that they do not carry. It is a good plan, and they have a sight on where they are going, and a few more HD are in the works, but there are not that many out there to choose from.
Many have said 'I'll buy if you add xxxx', well they added xxx, and yyy and zzz! So the subs will come.
Dolan will follow the DTV plan. Give away boxes for min sub commitments, and watch the money flow in in 12-20 months. Same as DTV did, exactly.
Offer a ton of channels, they will come.
They already have most of the HD content out there, and I know they are missing some sports HD. It will come.
