Does anyone plan to VOOM?

Anybody else hear about the new HD satellite service, VOOM?

They have 39 HD channels with several of those exclusive:

HD Rave - The first music television channel in HDTV.

HD Ultra - Fashion TV, home design, & travel. Leading worldwide fashion designers and shows as well as insider tours of the trendiest restaurants, hotels, home and gardens.

HD Gallery - World of art, architecture and cultural performances.

HD MOOV - a channel where the view constantly changes. A continuous flow of imagery set to music. Real world scenes such as nature walks; a fireplace; a field trip through many major cities.

HD Animania - Animation of all sorts. Children and families animation shorts feature films and cartoons. Also cutting edge video game shorts.

HD VOOM News - News, weather and sports updates 24 hours a day.

HD Cinema 10 - 10 different channels of movies in HD. Each channel features one title playing throughout the day. So you can choose between 10 different movies each day.

HD Epics - Cinema and performing arts programming. Lush costume dramas to stunning dance performances. Literary epics and sweeping cinematic dramas including programming like a season pass to Lincoln Center, BAM, and the BBC.

HD Monsters - All horror, thrillers and sci-fi in HD. Titles such as Horror of Dracula and Frankenstein, to Freddy and Jason. Also the KillaThrillaZilla-thon, a marathon of Godzilla movies.

HD Rush - Fast moving action sports. Extreme surfing, kite surfing, heli-skiing, mountain biking and mountain boarding to name a few.

HD Worldsport - The Wide World of Sports meets the wide world of HD. A diverse lineup of top events from around the world. With live, exclusive presentations of the finest soccer action in the world from the top two soccer leagues Italy and Spain. Plus track and field, motor sports,
horse racing, cycling, Grand Prix, sailing and more.
Basic service looks to run $40 and several of the above sound interesting

Big drawback: two receivers with installation will be in the neighborhood of $1250.

Has anybody seen displays at Sears? (it's exclusive to Sears until the end of the year) I'd be curious to hear about the quality vs. OTA or Dish/DirecTV.

I guess they're coming out with a DVR next year as well.
