Lost Remote: Family fight ends up with VOOM for sale Looks like the exciting potential that was once VOOM may be very short-lived indeed. DirecTV and Dish are indicated to have little interest in purchasing the high def satellite system from Cablevision.
Voom, whose tag line is, “not just the most HDTV, the best HDTV,” has about 26,000 subscribers at present and offers 35 HDTV channels. They have been a troubled concern for Cablevision due to large financial losses that the broadcaster has suffered.
How crazy would it be for Microsoft to buy the troubled satellite HDTV network and offer it in conjunction with it’s new HDTV Media Center?
Yeah, pretty crazy.
