    Interesting that this channel will actually launch.... however, not with Anthem Media. I mentioned in some other thread awhile back how it seemed like this channel wasn't going to launch because Anthem removed all references to the channel from it's website, among other clues. It looks like they abandoned the channel and dropped or sold their rights to Neon Star Media instead. Unless Neon Star is some kind of off-shoot shadow company that Anthem owns or invests in that they don't really promote, kind of like how Anthem owns an interest in TNA Wrestling, which they make no reference to.

    A little off topic, but I guess this means with Anthem's purchase of GameTV, it's looking even more clear that they'll likely rebrand that channel as Edge Sport, or do shuffle game where Fight Network or FNTSY Sports Network will take over GameTV's spot because it has more distribution and Edge Sport will take over the rebranded channel's spot.
