Now that the new year has arrived, many are contemplating their new year’s resolutions and enjoying the clean slate that a new year brings. Others are sitting on their couches, nestled by the fire, and finding out what television has to offer on this holiday. The cable channel, HGTV, celebrates it’s biggest day of the year today with their coverage of the Rose Bowl Parade and the unveiling of the HGTV Dream Home for 2011. Unfortunately, they are competing with the mega-debut of the OWN channel by Oprah Winfrey this year as well.
What HGTV viewers are gunning for this year is a 3,000-square-foot home at the foot of a ski hill in Stowe, Vt. The full prize package is worth $1.5 million and includes a GMC Acadia Denali and $500,000 in cash. Can this compete with Oprah’s new channel? Only time will tell.
