Cable provider, Cablevision, recently introduced Voom, a new HDTV oriented satellite TV delivery system that will compete directly with DirecTV and Dish Network as well as large scale cable providers in a market as big as the continental United States. Voom isn’t available in Canada, Alaska or Hawaii. Voom’s first priority is to HDTV programming and it comes out of the gates with 21 channels including some unique channels produced by Cablevision as part of their $39.90 per month plan. Their most expensive plan is closer to $100 per month is it has even more HDTV channels than the standard 21 offerings including Discovery HD Theater, HBO, Showtime, Stars and Encore. The traditional channels found on Voom are still sparse at this point and will leave TV enthusiasts wanting to keep their existing digital cable or satellite provider so that they can have a more robust choice of non-HDTV programming. A representative from Voom claims ...

HDNet and the National Hockey League announced yesterday that HDNet will broadcast 65 NHL games in HDTV during the 2003-2004 hockey season. Fans with HDTV systems will find games on many digital cable and both major satellite TV systems on Tuesday and Friday nights. Under the multi-year partnership, NHL games will be telecast on HDNet networks on DIRECTV, DISH Network, Charter Communications, Insight Communications, cable companies affiliated with the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), and other distributors that affiliate with HDNet in the future. All NHL on HDNet broadcasts will be original HDNet productions, using HDNet’s HD mobile production units and with HDNet announcers and graphics. Historically, HDTV broadcasts of many professional sporting events often borrow non-HDTV commercials, play-by-play and color commentary from the standard NTSC broadcast with choppy results at best. HDNet will be taking on the responsibility of creating entire NHL presentations for the HDTV audience. Hopefully for serious hockey fans this means fewer ...
