Samsung's award-winning televisions incorporating Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology from Texas Instruments are known as large screen "tabletop" HDTVs. They're lauded not only for their screen performance, but also for remarkable design and the absence of screen aging or other picture degradation issues. Samsung's 43-inch DLP HDTV weighs just 68-pounds, measures only 15-inches front-to-back, and is fitted with the latest high-definition TV interface for a pure digital connection with the VOOM receiver. It's perfect for enjoying today's movies, video games, sports or DVDs in a slim design that fits where most large screen rear projection sets won't.

"Samsung is excited to partner with VOOM to provide presenters and performers at the Academy Awards® with one of the industry's best-selling, award-winning High-Definition TVs, a Samsung 43-inch widescreen DLP(TM) TV, along with VOOM's new high-definition rich television service," says Jim Sanduski, Vice President of Marketing for Samsung's Visual Display Products Group. "Our DLP(TM) TV is based on Emmy-winning picture technology that a Hollywood audience will both expect and truly appreciate."

VOOM is the first direct broadcast satellite service built specifically to deliver HD programming and, with a line up of more than 30 HD channels, delivers more HD programming than any other satellite or cable service. Taking center stage are 21 exclusive commercial-free HD channels that showcase the best in movies, sports, music and more, including frightening films on Monsters HD, all-music-all-the-time on Rave HD, in-your-face extreme sports on Rush HD and the finest in fashion and food from around the globe on Ultra HD. Rounding out VOOM's HD package are HD favorites such as STARZ!, Showtime, Playboy TV, NFL Network, HBO HD and CINEMAX HD. The service also includes popular cable channels in standard definition such as Disney Channel, A&E, FX and AMC, as well as over-the-air digital local broadcast channels delivered in HD where available.

"As the leader in HD television technology, Samsung is the natural partner for VOOM to provide an unrivaled high-definition experience to Oscar® presenters and performers," said Bill Casamo, executive vice president sales and marketing, Rainbow DBS. "Who better than movie stars themselves to test drive VOOM's exclusive collection of exceptional movie channels on Samsung's cutting-edge HDTV equipment."

The exclusive gift package worth more than $6,000 includes a 43-inch Samsung DLP HDTV and 12 months of the VOOM service, which includes a satellite dish, set-top receiver, remote control and full professional installation.

I would hope that somehow, Voom will be showing the award show in HD on the satellite.
Any chance of that?
