.2 Launch Pushed to Spring

Digital network had been scheduled to launch in December.

The debut of digital network .2 has been pushed back from December to the spring. Pronounced “dot-two,” the entertainment network was scheduled to premiere Dec. 8. Network executives said a combination of factors contributed to the decision, including the digital conversion in February and, of course, the shoddy state of the economy. Senior V.P./COO Clark Morehouse also said .2 had not yet signed up enough affiliate partners, who get a revenue sharing deal with .2.
