a Dish Network HDTV
System In Your Future?
If you've been
considering HDTV, now is the time to get started thinking about
your future TV watching. First of all you need to think about whether
or not your TV is HDTV compatible or not. If not, you need to figure
out what HDTV monitor will fit your budget. Prices have come down
drastically in the past few years and HDTV monitors are actually
With the recent
buyout of Voom by EchoStar, you should start to see many great changes
coming down the road in the area of HDTV. EchoStar will probably
either absorb Voom into Dish Network or combine it with the HDTV
program Dish Network already has. Either option brings great potential
to the overall HDTV picture with EchoStar.
What is Voom HDTV?
was started by Cablevision, had the most HD channels available.
Cablevision launched Voom in 2003 and had spent around $1 billion
promoting it and only had around 26,000 customers. This reluctantly
forced Cablevision to sell Voom to EchoStar for around $200 million.
Does the future of Dish
HDTV look good?
Check out the
JD Power and Associates web site and select telecom, and choose
cable and satellite. Then you will see why I think Voom will do
better with Dish Network. The ratings Cablevision got were terrible.
This may be why Voom only had 26,000 customers. Dish Network, who
now ranks number one in the JD power ratings, has proven that they
know how to treat customers. Squeezing a product like Voom into
the Dish Network business model will only make things better for

like Voom compete with Dish Network and DirecTV when they basically
give away all the free equipment you could ever want? The reason
Dish Network and DirecTV can give away free equipment, is, because
you pay the same monthly fee as long as you remain a customer. They
spend a little up front, but make a nice profit from then on.
Who Has the Best HDTV Offer?
When it comes
to Dish Network HD TV, I usually recommend Dish Pronto. They are
one of the pioneers of marketing Dish Network through the Internet.
They have excellent customer service and top-notch security on their
web site. If you feel uneasy doing business over the Internet, Dish
Pronto has a toll-free number you can use as well.

Right now Dish
Pronto is giving away up to 2 free HDTV receivers, along with all
the other equipment you need, except the HDTV television set. Also
for a limited time DISH is giving away the first 6 months of HDTV
service free. That's pretty awesome, because the Dish Network HDTV
offer only costs $9.99 per month extra.
