    Never happen, prefer to have that 'action' as PPV. Waste of bandwidth anyway...

    I'm sure your channels are only the best use of bandwidth. :rolleyes: Just because you don't watch it, it doesn't mean others do not. WWE is very popular with some of the highest ratings each week.

    I have to agree and it's what makes satellite/cable appealing to me. Many different interests. There have been channels I thought I would never watch but found some good programs sometimes.

    Hopefully this will give SyFy, USA and the CW room for more scripted, um, character-driven, um, story-driven shows, um, er, well, all of that but with less shouting and no audience. Would people watch enough reruns to justify making a special channel? I guess they have a growing library of (almost) direct-to-video movies. How else will they fill the schedule? This Week's Profile: Barry Horowitz? In the Kitchen with George Steele?

    I see no reason why World Wrestling Entertainment shouldn't have its own cable network.

    In fact, it would seem like they could cut a deal with NBCU. NBCU could combine Syfy and USA into a single cable network with enough new programming to almost fill a prime time schedule for half a year based on what they're doing now. Then they could simply slip WWE Network into the vacant slot on virtually every cable and satellite offering. And Syfy/USA could drop wrestling.

    That would solve all kinds of problems. All the Syfy scripted series shows (heck, even most of their "reality" series shows) fit the "Characters Welcome" theme of USA anyway. Heck, a cable network that offered typically 13 to 20 episodes the following 15 scripted shows during the year would probably get as many viewers as NBC has the past three years:

    Syfy - Alphas (since 2011)
    Syfy - Being Human (since 2011)
    USA - Burn Notice (since 2007)
    USA - Covert Affairs (since 2010)
    Syfy - Eureka (since 2006)
    USA - Fairly Legal (since 2011)
    Syfy - Haven (since 2010)
    USA - In Plain Sight (since 2008)
    USA - Necessary Roughness (since 2011)
    USA - Psych (since 2006)
    USA - Royal Pains (since 2009)
    Syfy - Sanctuary (since 2008)
    USA - Suits (since 2011)
    Syfy - Warehouse 13 (since 2009)
    USA - White Collar (since 2009)

    the more times you request the channel the better chances are that Dish will pick it up let them know you want it in HD.

    What would be the point?

    It'll probably lose its focus eventually and air something unrelated, like Extreme Couponing. :hurah:

    Hopefully they'll put some wrestling from the 50's and 60's.
