Not Much Here[edit]

So what gives? Why the absence of information about Style Network? Am I on the wrong page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.228.133.208 (talk) 00:19, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Defunct cable channels usually are not merged into articles for their replacement networks. (Discovery Health and Soapnet have not been redirected to Oprah Winfrey Network or Disney Junior for example). It's odd to have the page for the Style Network redirected to Esquire Network. Why was this decision made? Am86 (talk) 07:17, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

I agree the Style Network should still be its own section. There is a great history there that should not be lost by redirecting to this page. --LukeBK (talk) 20:21, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was move per request. Sorry, my fault, you shouldn't have had to make this request. What happened was I was mass reverting moves of numerous pages from "(TV network)" to "(TV channel)" and in my haste, moved this not back to the name it was at before the move, but to the form of name others had been moved from.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 13:24, 13 December 2012 (UTC)


Style (TV network)Style Network – First of all, there was never any discussion or consensus reached to change the name to Style (TV network) in the first place. Second, Style Network was the established name of the article for quite a while. Why would it be changed in favor of a name that needs further clarification/disambiguation from parentheses? Despite their on-air branding, the official name of the network is the Style Network. After their rebranding, it appears as though they are even beginning to revive this name to some degree; they've changed their web address from mystyle.com back to stylenetwork.com Relisted.

The history of the style network[edit]

I added a summary history of the style network such as it was. Briefly, the network spun off of E! in 1998 and offered serious coverage of designers/fasion for about three years (give or take). Then it shifted to makeover shows. Then a few years later it shifted again to personality based reality shows. Then it was killed because it was easier to give its channel to esquire than to get direct tv to pick up esquire.

The sources for the history of the network are really thin. The best information is often to be found on the resumes of people who worked there.

Its not much history for something that lasted so long. But thats part of the reason it died. It was a place for shows, but it lacked any sort of identity or brand as a network. The programming was also by its nature not things that tended to last. It mostly disappeared as fast as it was created. The lasting irony is that in creating esquire network, they have basically re-created all the problems of the style network over again. 209.163.167.156 (talk) 22:00, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
