Wondering if Voom is going to approach Direct about carrying the net now that Dish has dropped it.
Cablevisions contract to carry VOOM expires on June 30th.They were not exclusive to dish though. Cablevision currently has Voom.
Cablevisions contract to carry VOOM expires on June 30th.
In addition Cablevision recently moved VOOM the SDV (Switched Digital Video) network, making the VOOM channels unavailable to all their customers using Cablecard technology.
I enjoyed VOOM when I was an E* customer, but have now been with D* since mid-April. When I first got VOOM with E* it was great...Monsters HD was the best. The past 6 months though, VOOM was repeats over and over again...not much new content. Monsters HD would have the same two shows over and over for a day or so and then change to another two shows...unfortunately not much new content.
If D* got VOOM it would be nice but the repeats need to be addressed or it is worthless in my opinion. I realize many channels have repeats, but the same two or three shows all day long are unacceptable.
My hope would be that they roll out the remaining SD & HD LiL first and the the remaining HBO and MAX suite; both SD & HD. Then we could THINK about Vooming.
DirecTV always could have carried this. They chose not to. The only reasons to dos o now would be to pick up some disgruntled DISH subs and perhaps they could get a better deal as VOOM has to be desperate at this point.
But while the forums here would indicate otherwise I just don't see alot of people looking for VOOM. In fact outside of these forums no one seems to have even heard of it.
