Are the extra Living channels surviving the takeover?

Sky have been suspiciously quiet about LIVINGit and LIVING Loves. There has been no word about them closing, but they weren't mentioned at the time of the 'Sky Living' rebrand announcement.

Perhaps they'll just stay as they are for now, or become Sky Living 2 and 3.

I see Challenge Jackpot still lives on in the form of their slot on ITV1. It was on last night for the first time since their main channel closed down I believe.

Their website hasn't been updated to reflect the closure of their channel. It also makes claims about a now non-exist ant live stream.

The two Living spin off channels are staying as they are with Sky infront of the name from February.

so challenge tv will be airing tna wrestling previously on bravo tuesday nights at 10pm . so that's a rebrand of programmes as tna wrestling isnt a game show but a challenging sports entertainment brand.

There was a lot of bad temped people on the forum, ( on the verge of being brats) that it was never ever coming.


That is what I miss most about the Challenge forum.

I'm not sure why people are not in favour of Challenge launching on Freeview; before Ftn closed it started showing old game shows and it was discussed greatly on here with many people sad at the fact the new Virgin1 would not be showing them. The Crystal Maze is returning to Challenge's schedules too.

Yes but FTN was shi*e for the bulk of its life, was it not? Apart from its last few months when it suddenly pulled its finger out of it's proverbial a*se, it wouldn't have been missed.
Virgin 1 was going to be a more general entertainment channel and not an Ftn clone. And it was more general entertainment.

And Crystal Maze has never really left Challenge's schedules. It just sort of drifts around the schedule endlessly.
Challenge have changed that logo slightly, if I remember correctly, unless it's just the on-screen DOG that's changed.
