Hey everyone, I have just received some good news. It appears that VOOM has received an extension of its life by 27 hours.

The word I have just received is that the VOOM Shutdown will now take place on May 1st at 3AM EST.

No word yet on if the boxes are going to be deauthorized or not. I would hope that they decide to keep them on so people can take advantage of the OTA tuners.

I am also receiving word from another contact that we could have more VOOM news on Friday.

Stay Tuned!

Well, I guess this is good news but I already have cable hooked up on one of my HDTV's and have left the other till V* goes black. I am looking forward to hearing what the news on Friday is all about though. :what

You guys just can't wait to find out what is going on. Patience is a virtrue. Something that most VOOM'ers don't have. Just kidding.

Since you don't have any long-term contracts with cable - no need to cancel the install. You can always cancel later on! ;)

3AM on May 1st makes a lot of sense. Anything earlier than that would've caused complaints...
