So, I'm planning to get a HDTV. I don't have specific models in mind as I'm still shopping around. But, in the meantime, I'd like to get ready to have the programming and all. So, right now my cable company (RCN) is offering HD boxes. I got one, and they set it to display on my normal TV (I wanted the optical audio for 5.1 movies and stuff on their digital chanels) and they showed me how to set it to work with a HDTV when I get one. That's great and all but I think I wanna go with a satelite system instead. It will be a little cheaper and from what I've read it'll be all or almost all digital. Right now on cable I have the movie channels as digital but most of the others are still analog (I can tell just by the quality) I was considering Dish Network but I didn't like that whole "You can't watch these channels right now" thing the did a little while ago and Comedy Central is one channel I watch pretty often. So, I figured I'd go with DirecTV and was all set to order it up with their multiroom deals they have going, and getting 1 "high tech" box for my HT area. I basically want to connect it to my regular 27" TV now, and when I get the new big HDTV, I just swap em and it's ready to go. But now I'm starting to see a lot of commericials for this Voom service. They're saying they have more HD channels than anyone. I checked out their site and they do seem to have a lot. But how to they compare to DirecTV? In quality and programming? Can Voom have local channels? If not, how would I go about getting local channels? Basically, am I better off with DirecTV or Voom?
