It has been confirmed on Broadcast Now’s website that Virgin Media-owned Trouble will close down on all platforms on the 1st April.
It will be replaced with a new LIVING channel later this year, which will give them three channels in the brand as well as the timeshift versions.
Trouble will be replaced with LIVING +2 in the interim (a two-hour timeshift version of the main LIVING channel) until the new LIVING channel launches.
In the Broadcast Now article, Virgin Media Television managing director Jonathan Webb says their “strategy this year is to consolidate our portfolio”.
LIVING 2 will also be overhauled later this year.
