Hubbards New Net: Basic Moviewatch

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.

"When we were distributors until recently with [direct-broadcast satellite television provider] USSB selling pay TV, Moviewatch is the channel we would have loved to have because it would have made our jobs easier and more effective," Hubbard said. Hubbard said he plans a formal announcement within the next two weeks.
