Winfrey launches her OWN cable TV network

NEW YORK: Oprah Winfrey’s network has begun not with a bang but with redeclared purpose by the Queen of Daytime TV for her much-anticipated cable-channel venture.

Winfrey launches her OWN cable TV networkThe Oprah Winfrey Network, or OWN for short, launched Saturday at noon EST (1700 GMT) with a one-hour preview special hosted by Winfrey. She provided a hearty wrap-up of the live-your-best-life fare she will curate across the network’s schedule.

A joint venture between Winfrey’s Harpo Inc. and Discovery Communication, OWN is replacing the Discovery Health network. OWN will initially be available in more than 80 million homes.

The startup cost for the network, which was originally announced three years ago, has ballooned to a reported $189 million.
