More than 3 million P25-54 viewers tuned-in to the specials, making Island Hunters one of the highest-rated programs of 2013, while the first season of sun-soaked Hawaii Life drew more than 15 million P25-54 viewers.

The show documents potential homebuyers as they determine if they can handle a home in the beautiful northern wilderness and includes glimpses of the endless natural scenery from Juneau to Anchorage and the Kodiak Islands to Halibut Cove. The network will premiere 14 half-hour episodes of the series in 2014.

Caribbean Life, a series of six half-hour episodes follows house hunters leaving the mainland behind in search of a mellow Caribbean existence is sure to appeal to viewers who dream of white sand, palm trees and ocean breezes.
