Couldn't ignore this part of your post... You find HDNet repetitive, and Voom as well... but don't think USA or SciFi or FX are repetitive?
I've seen nights where on FX the same movie comes on back-to-back! That's repetitive to me.
It's a fair point to complaint about repetition... but please be fair and note that many of the channels you'd trade Voom for are also just as repetitive.
Now, if you like the programming on SciFi better than a particular Voom channel, that's cool. I don't watch Ultra at all, for instance, on Voom... but to state Voom is bad because it is repetitive, and then turn a blind eye to the same kind of repetitiveness on another channel makes no sense to me.
Ok maybe I should put it this way
FX , Sci-fi , USA are repeative but they are repeative on shows people actually want to see. I am a big Starcraft and WoW player. But I am sorry how many times are Gameplay going to show the Blizzard world wide inventational from 07.
I like the concept of voom but really feel that the could condense channels to reduce repeative . Like take 4 of the speciality movie channels and just make it one.
Basically I shown people Voom and they are all impressed with it until they go to see what else is on and they see constant repeative content. With no real public schedule to add more.
At least I know with USA, Sci-fi , etc that they have prime time content that is in HD. Which like any broadcast network with have there season and there off season. I could really care less what is not in "Prime Time" Be it on Voom or Cable or Broadcast networks.
I do take back the comment about HDnet because while it really not a channel I got into they are no where as bad as Voom channels are.
