To be fair, HDNet's only real strength was that they were providing HD programming when no one else would/could. They *do* have a lot of worthwhile original programming, but at this point it's kind of like shouting in the middle of a hurricane.
Once the big-media companies ramped up their HD distribution networks and started "recalling" all of their HD content, the writing was pretty much on the wall. Frankly, I'm surprised that Mr. Cuban has stuck with the "original formula" this long.
IOW, perhaps HDNet as we've known it has fulfilled it's original purpose and it's simply time to move on.
