"More VOOM rumors:
Strong unconfirmed rumor that Comcast will begin to carry some VOOM HD channels later this year (source does not want to be named, but is usually reliable)
This play makes a great deal of sense as VOOM only has something like 6,000 subs and needs $$$$
If they can do a pure transport deal and add VOOM programming ( some or all ) to their current HD line up that would enable VOOMs
acces to Comcasts base of 26million (or so) subs.
Moreover ,take a1%-5% penetration/consumer adoption rate into that 26million and VOOM is an overnight success.
Above fwiw; don't know if it is true, but I am passing on what I have heard"
Mark is generally pretty well clued in.
