USDTV Issues

I don't know who here has heard of USDTV, but it is a service that offers a few pay-tv channels such as ESPN, Disney Channel, and TLC over-the-air. They bought unusued digital spectrum for tv companies in 4 cities: Albuquerque, Dallas, Las Vegas, and Salt Lake City.

They filed for bankruptcy but are back taking calls, They will not accept new customers or send techs out now.

What are people's opinions of the service? I know it is something akin to Freeview in the UK.

Freeview in the UK

For those who don't know:

"FREEVIEW is a free digital TV service offering over 30 TV channels and 20 radio stations for just a one-off payment and no contract. FREEVIEW is received through your normal rooftop aerial."

Currently 75% coverage of the UK - 98% by 2008...

I'm guessing that USDTV really screwed up if they can't manage just four channels to four cities Plain
