I'm well aware of the lack of HD channels compared with DirecTV, however, I really must say that the *distinct* advantage is that I can watch RECORDED HD whenever I want. This makes DirecTV's cost worth it because I don't have a free enough schedule to sit in front of the TV waiting for a show to start. Plus, I never have to worry about not having service or spending the day on the phone with support or waiting for a tech to arrive or watching horrible SD quality. Don't get me wrong - if Voom gets a WORKING DVR anytime soon, they will have an advantage, but I seriously doubt that 1) it isn't going to be $500 or more to purchase and 2) it isn't going to be plagued with service problems like the rest of Vooms beta quality service.zubinh said:I cant understand why people make a big deal about D* one year contract. My contract says if I cancel within a year, send back all of the equipment and I wont be charged anything! If I dont send back the boxes, then I get charged $150. So what? I could sell the boxes on ebay and recoup the $150. Not only that, the $150 is prorated and decreases by $12.50/month.
Is this really the "handcuffs" people are talking about?
