At what price point would you decide to purchase a Voom Hi-Def Satellite System?
I said that I wasn't interested, but I WOULD be if E* worked out a way to access the programming (one of my E* dishes is already pointing at 61.5). Maybe Cablevision agrees to make like Verizon and AT & T and sell exclusive V* programming via E*'s hardware...... Might be a way to help make the V* service more viable from a dollars standpoint.........
I almost got drawn and quartered when I hung the second dish off of the house. One more, plus another remote, more things to remember to access the programming you want - just too much of a hassle for my household. (My dog and cat are on my side, but it's a losing battle). Now if Voom got snapped up by E* . . .
Voom needs to be more affordably priced. It has to be inviting and enticing to those wanting their HDTV now. One thing smart about Voom is that is has standard definition channels of cable programming. The price is the most important factor. People don't want to take on the debt if they figure the system is not worthy.
I need an HDTV first....still not worth the money in my book for the minimal programming and setup and ongoing cost. Local OTA HDTV just isn't worth the investment in the setup even though the ongoing cost is free......
Once DLPs and Plasmas can play 1080i natively "and" programming is more robust, "then" I will consider the significant investment and ongoing costs.
The standard in the industry is $0, with a free instal.
There is just way too much betamax risk here to actually pay for any equipment.
When I move next year, hope to have a shot at 61.5. If VOOM has a no-risk offer like they just had, but one year from now, I will try them out. They have Cinemax HD. Would probably just keep Dish for AT120, Sirius and DVR'ing if I liked VOOM.
