Sounds like Seacrest is is mimicking Oprah again.
It's astounding how big a media empire this guy has built himself.

Supposedly HDNet Movies will be unaffected. The only thing that sucks about the HDNet change is that the late night "Unrated" shows will be cut out.

He's the new Dick Clark. Look into how many pies that old man has/had his fingers in.

I'm so glad to get a 3rd channel, in addition to the first 2 that I don't watch, that allegedly focuses on music. With Seacrest involved, it's not likely to be anything earth shattering or eclectic, but pop music 24/7.

I will really miss Art Mann Presents and, to a lesser extent, Get Out. The rest of the unrated stuff pretty much blew chunks anyway.

I guess shows like "Sunrise Earth" just aren't bringing in the numbers anymore. :) (I realize they haven't aired it in a while.) The only thing I have watched on HDNetis their movie trailer show.

HDNet Movies, however, I watch often. What can I say, it's just great.

There is no 3rd channel. HDNet itself is being retooled and branded in order to create it.

I use to enjoy HDNet when it was more of a classic HD channel featuring TV shows which either were remastered for HD or early adopters of HD. When those shows started to disappear, my interest in the channel went away as well. We still will flip by it in order to check out 'Nothing but trailers' now and then but that tends to be about it..

HDNet has floundered the past few years with no direction. As the first really good looking HD channel, they had a purpose. Not lately. This new direction sounds interesting.
Unlike HD Theater becoming "Velocity" "Hey, lets devote a channel about rich men and car auctions!

One poster in this thread stated that the HDNet movies would be unaffected by the change.

Based on the press releases I have seen, the inference is that only a few programming features now existing on HDNet would remain, and I do not see any mention that the movies stay:

Inside TV

Wall Street Journal

If the movies are gone, I will be sorely disappointed. HDNet has hosted some absolutely beautiful presentations of some classic and modern movies, absolutely commercial free I have no need for Seacrest's new network if these are gone.
