Thumbs down Chiller channel going dark

CHILLER is being 'killed off' like a character in a slasher movie now.

Quote:
Chiller is soon to be dead. NBCUniversal confirmed to Deadline today that its 10-year-old horror-fied cable channel, which reaches about 40M homes, will be put on ice for good at year’s end after struggling to secure carriage deals with the likes of Dish, Verizon and others.

We hear that NBCU doesn’t plan to pull the plug on any of its other nets and that no staffers will be impacted when Chiller goes cold on New Year’s Day.

Since launching in March 2007, Chiller has aired mostly horror films and older TV fare along with one original scripted series, the Canadian horror anthology Slasher, which premiered in March 2016. Chiller also aired original reality fare and films such as Lifeforce and Siren, along with such off-net genre series as 666 Park Avenue, Being Human, Fear Factor, Tales From the Crypt, The Twilight Zone and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I don't think I ever got Chiller. I was looking forward to seeing that Slasher show too.

Well this fucking sucks. My aunt and I love watching that channel when I go over to her house.


Oh god... that leaves us with "ScyFy" for a horror fix.

SyFy has become a giant melting pot. Wrasslin' is not science fiction.

Either way the only good thing to come from it is Face Off.

I checked and I never got Chiller. According to wiki they only had two original shows. Steve Niles' Remains movie and the Slasher show. I really want to check out Slasher. Hopefully I'll watch it during Halloween next year.
