+ - Dish Network drops all Voom HD channels

Submitted by sheph
sheph writes: Dish Network dropped 10 out of 15 Voom HD channels yesterday, and plan to drop the other 5 in the near future. Dish spins the action by stating that the channels were unpopular (which is not really true as far as I can tell from the outrage on the message boards). They added 22 channels, but none of them really looked like anything interesting. "Let's watch the weather channel in HD". "OOOOHHHH someone get the popcorn!!!" Personally I liked the content provided by Voom, and I'm kind of irritated in what to me amounts to a legal blackmail stunt. http://www.tvpredictions.com/dishvoom051308.htm
