Not Much Here
- 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)
The history of the style network
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. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:00, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
