Only 1? Come on Timm, have a few more brewskis. :D Hopefully later today, I will have the Dish Voom 10 active.

Yep, we enjoyed VOOM until the bitter end.

Will be missed. Still have OTAs here in Seattle as well.

Seems strange that VOOM just turned off in the middle of HDNews. No goodbye to loyal VOOMers. Nada. Nothing. Just like we never existed. Had hoped for a little more class from VOOM even though I didn't expect it from Cablevision.

Still enjoying OTAHD under clear Seattle skies, Gill

Thought you'd be under the table by now.

Yep, sad indeed but was a thing of beauty until the last. Will be sorely missed.

So, still a little bit enjoying OTAHD under cloudless Seattle skies, Gill

I just signed up for the Voom 10 with Dish, but I am not receiving any programming yet. The acquarium on the Demo channel is stunning.

No, Gill, too sad to enjoy fine spirits of any type...I associate good food and libations with celebrations...it's never worked to drown my sorrows....Gonna go cry in my pillow now. Somebody please turn the lights out. :river :river :river Vicki

It's been a rollercoaster ride since I subscribed in January, but I loved every minute of it. The only silver lining that I see is that it's May 1st and the weather is turning nice. I think I'll go outside and see some real HD. If I need to watch any TV I still have my 8.5' BUD hooked up.
Remember this Voomers we had a glimpse at the future of TV.
