St. Paul, Minn.-Hubbard Media CEO Stanley E. Hubbard last Friday confirmed reports that his firm plans to launch a new basic-cable channel called Moviewatch late next year, with former USA Networks president of entertainment Rod Perth at the helm.

Hubbard said he plans a formal announcement within the next two weeks.
