HGTV to Offer Web-Only Series

Oct 10, 2006  •  Post A Comment

HGTV said it will launch its first Web-only series with a pair of shows that debut next week on HGTVkitchendesign.com.

“8 Fresh Ideas for Kitchen Backsplashes” and “Getting Started-10 Steps to a New Kitchen” were chosen based partly on how much interest users of the Internet channel have shown in the topics, HGTV said in a statement.

“Backsplashes” has ranked among the top search terms on the broadband channel since it launched in January, while kitchen remodeling is also a popular topic, the company said.

The backsplash series will include eight Web episodes. The kitchen remodel show, checking in at 10 webisodes, is being billed as a beginner’s guide to kitchen remodeling. HGTVkitchendesign offers more than 450 videos.
