    It will be interesting to check this new offering out. After a couple of months, the novelty of Voom is beginning to wear off as a lot of their HD channels have cheezy content. For our household, the quality of the content has to pick up soon or we'll be pulling the plug. I'm hopeful that Dish will add another channel or two to their HD pack.

    That sounds like an interesting channel. Hopefully it will migrate to Direct soon.

    well the equator channel seems to be ok i was watching the deal on broadway remembers and it was interesting but the problem with this channel along with most of vooms others are they repeat all the time and some of the stuff is just up converted to HD because alot of these films were not shot in HD fact is most of them were made before anyone ever heard of HD or digital tv period. I would watch them alot more if they didnt repeat themselves to much its like the same thing over and over again but they have a good idea with these channels they just need more original content and more stuff to put on there so they arnt repeating themselves so much.
