Cablevision Systems chairman Charles Dolan plans to oust three more directors who had ordered him to shut the Voom satellite TV service that he is trying to rescue, the company disclosed yesterday.

The disclosure came on the same day that the board's interim agreement to extend the life of Voom expired. The satellite venture's uncertain fate has sparked an enormous feud between Dolan and his chief executive son, James, who wants to kill it.

The infighting alone spells doom. who is going to invest or subscribe to a service in such a state of disarray. Dolan must have lost it, you can't toss millions a month down the drain to save something that's not going anywhere..
