    JERICHO, N.Y. (Feb. 12, 2004) -- Today, Rainbow DBS' VOOM breaks new ground by launching the first ever 24-hour a day, 7-days-a-week national high-definition (HD) news channel, HDNews (HDN). Viewers of HDN receive news headlines, weather information, sports highlights, and more with a true-to- life picture that's nearly as real as being on the scene. HDN is available exclusively to subscribers of VOOM, the first television service to offer a full array of HD programming to customers throughout the continental United States. With more than 30 HD channels, 21 of which are exclusive, VOOM offers far more HD programming than any other satellite or cable service.
