Voom HD deal extended through 7/5! NEW Channels!

Thought I would give a heads up to this. I was just on their site. I was planning on moving at the beginning of June, so I was going to call in May before the deal expired, but it has apparently been extended. Which is good since now, I'm not moving until July.

The Deal:

$0 - Installation
0 - commitment
$0 - Local channels + they are in HD

$39.99 - monthy fee
$9.50 - monthy fee for equipment

What you get:
35 channels in HD. THEY HAVE ESPN FINALLY! As a matter of fact they have 7 ESPN channels, an NFL channel, and a Tennis channel, and more. Only the main ESPN is HD though.

They are still missing G4/TechTV, but they have piocked up Disney now as well. Looks like they are on the right track.

The deal expires a week before I move, so I wonder if I can get in on the deal, but schedule the install at a later date.

For the same channels, HD box and only 10-12 HD channels with my Cable Co. runs over $70. This is great.

I am seriously considering getting in on this. I'm getting tired of TWC.

Wow, the CS is apparently horrendous. I'm not worried about install delays. Since I don't move until July 12, I'm good with delays. There isn't anything worthwile on during the summer anyway, I just don't want to miss out on this deal.

When they get my regional Fox Sports Net, in any definition, I'll make the move. Until then, I gotta stay put. Can't live without my Twins and Wolves.

I really hate the thought of losing HDNet though...would be very hard for me to switch.
