    Wonder if going forward, this has any impact on how these channels fall into "packages".

    Yeah this was announced a while back. I remembered reading about it here.

    Got to admit I'll miss some of the Guy's night in programming.

    Sigh, another one bites the dust. HDNET used to be a great channel.

    I have mixed emotions...

    Outside of Nothing But Trailers, I really haven't watched ANYTHING on HDNet in forever...

    Had it not been for the fact that I'm in the process of clearing off some older DVRs, I probably would have given "Hustle" a try though.

    Hustle isn't an HDNET original. I think it got it's start on AMC in this country.

    I know... I just never watched it, and I probably would have given it a try once HDNet started airing it, but the timing wasn't right.

    HDNet Joins With Ryan Seacrest...

    **shudders**

    Nothing But Trailers is pretty much the only thing I watch on there as well. Sometimes I'll catch a Smallville rerun, but that's about it.

    There are some positives: "Seacrest is a stakeholder in the venture, with no plans to contribute as an on-air personality.”

    I like Ryan Seacrest a lot, so that's not really a positive for me...

    I'm just curious as to what programming changes will be coming... :confused:

    Well, it's his fault we have the Kardashians on our tvs. Who knows what hell he'll unleash on AXS.

    Nothing But Trailers and Drinking Made Easy. I love watching those guys drink in various places. If I could only get that job. . .
