+2 for SPEED
I agree. Voom is what is making your Hd bill so high in the first place. IT was $ 9.99 till Voom came around a couple of years ago in May. Then it was $ 5.00 extra for 10 channels of Voom. So my bill was $14.99 a month. THEn they added 5 more Voom channels and the bill went up to $20.00 a month. So if we could eliminate the VOOM channels or make them ala carte , we should be able to lower the bill down to $ 10.00 a month again.
E* has added more than Voom in the change from the $9.99 pack to the $20 pack. If you want to see what $9.99 will buy you, look at Hawaii. (Don't forget that HBO/Showtime are not included for $9.99/$20.)
E* charged $7.99 for just one channel - Discovery HD
Four channels (ESPN, HDNet, HDNet Movies, and TNT HD) were added to make it $9.99
Ten Voom channels were offered as an add on for $5
Then the packages combined ... $14.99 became $20 and eleven more channels have been added.
(A&E, Food, HGTV, NFL, Universal, NatGeo for AT250 subs and five more Voom.)
To expect E* to give you 11 HD channels for $10 when they were selling five for $9.99 two years ago is a dream.
The Hawaii/Alaska price of 8 channels for $9.99 is more like what you would get for $10.
(ESPN2, NFL and Universal are the added channels.)
none of the above, commercials in HD, who cares
FX - The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Resuce Me, Always Sunny....
I always watch recordings and skip through the commercials on my 622 DVR. Get a DVR, and you'll never go back to a receiver again.
My vote would be for:
Discovery SD simucasted on a Discover HD channel
History Channel HD
I would also like to see USA, FX and TCM in HD. Since I could choose only one in the poll, I voted for ScFi.
None of the above. E* should focus on more RSN's like NESNHD and YESHD and local HD markets. Don't bother with those channels.
The only two I care about are Golf and Big Ten Network. If these two aren't in HD on Dish by the fall, I will dump Dish and switch to DirecTV. That's $145/month out of the Dish coffers!
good point, but It costs too much for me, so I didn't get one
Those are my top choices. I'd like to also have History channel and all Discovery channels.
I watch World Sports on Voom quite often. Then also RUSH every now and then.
RAVE is also cool from time to time.
But what I don't watch is the movie channels. Voom or not. Because the way I've been since I started collecting DVDs is that any movie that I wanna see, I would buy the DVD for it.
I did the dish equipment upgrade and it cost $150 but got $150 in rebates for a leased 622, so the net cost will be $0 except for the added HD charges.
None of the above.
Your poll is kinda bunk in my opinion. The selection is too generic to even try to appease a vast array of people.
Speed and WGN are the two most important to me and quite a few others around here. I hardly watch those channels you listed in the poll, especially MTV. I jumped off that train when (c)rap took over.
Video may have killed the radio star but shows killed MTV.
Oh yeah, Top Gear needs to be in HD!!!!!
AMC, TCM,WGN, TBS, the SuperStations, would all be nice, but my vote is for HD RSN's for EVERYONE, then you can had more junk like QVC-HD for all I care!
