Just signed up today, but receiver question.
Posted 03 March 2005 - 09:49 PM
I asked him if I could avoid the $5/receiver rental fee by buying a VoOM receiver off Ebay (either new or used). He said 'no', and something about the receiver's are unique to the customer. I though maybe he was just trying to get me to pay the rental fee or something.
Someone mentioned earlier about requesting an antenna. When I asked a CSR earlier about the OTA antenna, they stated that they use a Winguard Sensor M1000. Can I request a different antenna? Should I? If so, are there any recommendations?

I think install includes an OTA antenna.

My install is next week Thursday -- I'll let you know how the antenna selection goes. I'm still waiting for the installer to call...

I have to agree with Gary again

However, apparently people that called the GET-VOOM number were still able to get signed up depending on what time you called and/or what CSR you got.
As for why I'd sign up now -- I'm actually HOPING that they shut down at any time. I pay $1 to get things installed -- including my choice of OTA antenna. If I get that installed for $1 on Thursday -- and VOOM shuts down at the end of the month -- that is quite fine with me. I'd just call that getting a nice OTA antenna installed for anywhere from $1 to $56 depending on if I have to pay for the first month or not.
Or, if they continue -- that's fine too. It's a win-win for me -- as long as I actually get it installed next week...
