Oprah Drama!

And the network hasn't even launched yet!

Oprah’s new OWN network is tripling the $0.07 per month fee for cable and satellite providers that they pay for the Discovery Health network that it replaces. Many are waiting until their deals with Discovery Health expire in order to renegotiate.

The network generated $18 million in advertising revenue this year and the already existing fee would generate about $64 million annually from subscriber fees.

Wonder why they're getting so greedy.

    Big surprise, i am so p*ssed that DHC is being replaced with this crap. You know Oprah will scrap all the decent shows on DHC and fill it with her whiny talk show bs…I honestly hope the network tanks within the first year because i CANNOT stand Oprah period…

    so long Oprah!!! I'll never pay for any extra cable channels…so I'm finished with her.

    Not interested in watching. Judging by the promos, I don't really see anything different that what she has already done. Ever year she says her show will be bigger and better and different. This is the same old line but with a new network. As they say, 'same shit, different bucket'.

    She needs to stop putting her grubby fingers into everyone elses cookie jars…. Discovery Health was one of my favorite channels and she had to go buy it out and put her stupid bullshit on it.



  5. 5

    I find this article …not so easy to understand. Whatevs.



  6. 6

    I can't wait for the new net work. The show about Fergie sounds fascinating and I'm really excited about Rosie's return.



  7. 7

    Everything Okra Panfry touches turns to GREED!



  8. 8

    I can't believe the Discovery Health Channel is being replaced by Oprah and Rosie O'Donnell type garbage. Why can't Oprah spend her time doing some hands on volunteering-but I guess she can't make any money doing such menial work.



  9. 9

    I have to say, I love when Oprah does deep shows about "the meaning of life" while wearing her $1200 Louboutins. That's always a nice touch.

    I love discovery health. I don't want to watch this bitch…I ESPECIALLY don't want to watch Rosie. I'd rather pull out my eyeballs

    Hey Oprah,
    -
    Will you please explain how two Democratic presidents – not one, but two – Bam Bam and Slick Willie endorsing Bush tax cuts, saying, ‘We need them crucially to help the economy?
    -
    So, were they lying to people all these years about the legitimacy of tax cuts really growing the economy or are they lying now? We want to know Oprah.

    Oh, I get it. She and the liberals figure she's got the juice to rival Fox news channel. Yeah, not interested, Opie.



  13. 13

    It makes me so mad that she's taking over DHC, it's probably my favorite channel on now. With all that money she's more than capable of starting her own channel, so why the hell does she have to take over another one?! Besides, OWN looks like crap…

    Okra's Lesbian Channel will FLOP; there just ain't enough Truck-Sized Ass Bull-Dykes out there to make it profitable. I know Rosie can Muff-Dive a lot of carpeting, but even Rosie's tongue has to take a break…



  15. 15

    likely the cost of the shows and people/celebs on the network … also the give-aways and charity work will need funding …



  16. 16

    Oprah just LOVES eating our Gayle's stinky, smelly TWAT!!!



  17. 17

    Really? She doesn't have enough money? There is a reason I don't like her and this pretty much sums it up.



  18. 18

    Can't Okra Panfry take a break and let someone else earn a living?

    Hope Oprahs new show sucks.DHC, shame on you.oprah should spend her Bazzilion dollars on worthwhile causes the nation needs instead of shit Tv.
