VOOM HD in DirecTV is something that has been discussed many times in these hallways. Us, the freelancers (since I cannot speak officially for VOOMHD), have always seen VOOMHD as another HBO, STARZ, etc. So we would be delighted to be on DirecTV, however, now with the CV deal, who knows. I used to be a DirecTV customer from the moment they went on the air. I was also one of the first DirecTV HD users. I finally gave up DirecTV for Verizon FIOS and have not looked back. Once, when DirecTV called me in the middle of my dinner with my family (for the 50th time, even after the do not call registry) I made it clear, get VOOM HD and I will switch back. No calls since then. So, No, I do not believe VOOMHD will be on DirecTV. Not because VOOMHD doesn't want to, but probably because DirecTV does not want to. That is, my view.
The difference between being hailed as a
genius, or living in an insane asylum, is success.
