I hope they're done with SD channels additions and use what remains of the bandwidth (before MPEG4) for HD. Come on VOOM give me at least one HD channel NOW. Maybe ESPN2-HD, please!!!

I'm new around here... but something I think is quite obvious in this time hasn't been mentioned by many of you, fellow Voomers.... and that is that Voom is in a transition... and that may have to do with incoherent (for lack of a better word) stuff like this. Maybe, as soon as the whole situation is resolved (which hopefully will happen soon), they will amend themselves and come up with the much wanted middle-tier package and even a better pricing structure, who knows?... I just think it is just too early to tell, with total and complete assurance, WTF is going on with the Voom honchos right now.

Just my opinion... please go easy on me, hehehe :).

I think if you want middle tier stuff you should not have : VOOM : Voom is HD first and SD second: sorry about that:

Subtle, Scott -- a real thinker. :D Hopefully they're reading this thread and will see that the VaVa decision was frowned upon by some -- although I still suspect they're positioning themselves for a middle tier/plus pack.

I just shot them off a message to their customer service e-mail expressing my disappointment that they added the new channels to Va Va Voom. I have the Discovery channels on my C-Band all digital package, but I still wanted to voice my opinion. If they make their Voom package attractive enough more people will jump over I believe. Just a thought

As a VaVaVoom subscriber I am very happy that they added six channels to my lineup at no cost to me. Way to go Voom!

How is that? ;)

Nothing alse matters but HD.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I'm tired of waiting for new HD channels for asking for more info. for requesting local sports channels and getting them SD channels suck for HDTV owners, why can the cable or satellite comp's agree that by giving us more local HD channels would get more costumer's.
does anybody ever watched the European Basketball thing I mean good for them but we want our local sports...

No disrespect to any one but I'm starting to feel that I'm wasting my money
and that we should have seen this coming SD channels VS HD channels, "our HD market is no where near strong enough to get this moving faster" Cablevicion costumer REP.
" I'm sorry sir. at this time we dont have any Info. to give out to costumer's"
VOOM costumer REP.
"Well we are trying to get some more channels in HD towards 2007. meanwhile we will still try to add some here and there." a friend who works for Direct T.V

*shrug* I'm betting once the whole live or die thing is sorted out, we will see some sort of middle tier price plan. I'm glad I get these new channels I guess, though I really only wanted BBCA (which of course didn't happen...)

New Channels

I just shot them off an e-mail message expressing my concern to customer service about the 6 new channels to the Va Va Voom package. It seems to me that if they make their Voom package more attractive new subscribers will make the jump especially with the current HD offered. The only thing that held me up from dropping Dish was no Lifetime which my wife loves, and last week they added the Lifetime package and I dropped Dish the next day. I know they can not please everyone with programming but the Discovery channels they added last night could have been part of the Voom package. As far as Fox Movie Channel that should be in the same category as TCM Bravo AMC not a premium service. I have all the channels they added last night on my C-band all digital package. Just a thought

How about this:

As a VaVaVoom subscriber I am very happy that they added six more channels to my lineup at no cost to me. Now I get 42 channels more than if I had bought the basic Voom package. Way to go Voom!

How is that? ;)
