I came close last night. I originally scoffed at another streaming service, especially one for just a single company, but when I looked at the show lineup I thought damn, I watch a lot of this. Might check it out soon.
Are there actually new shows? Or is it just streaming what they already have? I haven't been able to find a show lineup anywhere - their website sucks.
All I've seen, from commercials, are that dumb Magnolia cooking show (oh good, another southern lady sharing her mother's recipes), and Bobby & Giada go to Italy (which I bet I would enjoy, but not as the singular option).
Seems like mostly streaming stuff that they already have, which for me is fine, plus a handful of originals that I don't really care about. The app is kind of undercooked, and I'm guessing the website is similar. I was wondering why I couldn't find Chopped, which is one of Food's most popular shows, and eventually found a placeholder saying that they will have a constant stream available later in January instead of having every episode available at once. Seems strange.
I still think it is a good value depending on your interests. I will get a lot of mileage out of the Food Network shows and the nature stuff. My wife and I are in home buying mode and like watching some of the DIY and HGTV shows that are focused more on the house and not on the personality. Like with most of these services in the streaming-overload era I will probably subscribe on and off depending on what else I'm watching.
