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

"Mr. Cuban’s other channel, HDNet Movies, will remain as-is."


Interesting bit:

To that end, the partners announced that Dish Network had agreed to expand its distribution of the channel to include non-high-definition homes. The change will allow AXS TV to have more than 35 million subscribers.


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

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.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

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.

I'm fairly certain his show as well as the other late night "raunchier" shows are going to be gone.

The 3rd from the last paragraph talks about the late night "unrated" shows being cut out.
