Best Unknown Cable Network (2007)
One of Denver's biggest cable operations is a mystery to most Denver cable subscribers. HDNet and its sister service, HDNet Movies, both owned by Dallas billionaire Mark Cuban, employ a staff of around 200 full-time employees who work at Colorado Studios in Stapleton. The channels have a growing national profile, thanks in large part to Cuban's hiring of CBS vet Dan Rather to host a weekly news program. But while the stations are available on DISH Network and DirecTV, those who get Comcast don't get HDNet, and that's a shame -- because they deserve the chance to check out HDNet's gains, too.
