Health Net To Shift to WebMD TV

New Orleans-As expected, The Health Network will relaunch as WebMD Television this fall-a move that will coincide with the debut of more original programming on the channel-officials said last Tuesday.

This fall, WebMD TV will premiere a number of new original series. Those shows are meant to build on the former America's Health Network's tradition of producing 85 percent to 90 percent original programming, network officials said. They will also take advantage of the resources and information on the network's Web site, according to officials.

WebMD TV is in 17.5 million homes.
