After receiving yesterdays notice of a price increase from D*, the service from Voom looks even more interesting. But while they offer lots of new channels, some like BBC & NWI would be sorely missed. This makes Voom a difficult sell to her indoors.
What are the promises or rumors for the addition of new channels - even if they are not provided in HD?

Welcome,

Rumors/Promises:

1- Up to 88 SD channels before MPEG-4. Double capacity of SD channels after MPEG-4.

2- HD Arena: ESPN-HD, BRAVO-HD+, ENCORE-HD (a done deal), TNT-HD (might be a done deal), PLAYBOY-HD (a done deal, yet we have not seen it), SPICE-HD, INHD 1 & 2, PPV-HD (two of these), HDnet (not in the distance future, but it might in a distance future), Disney-HD (Speculation).

P.S. with the introduction of MPEG-4, it will create more space for HD but it won't be available until 2005.

Thank you for the wlcome and all the info on the site.

Sean,
I am an ISF Calibrator and home theater designer out of Michigan and have been able to inform many clients about Voom and direct them to this sight, thank you for all your efforts. I am looking forward to having it installed on friday in one of my demo rooms.
