Back in March of 2007, the Chiller horror channel was launched. The channel was filled with wall-to-wall horror movies and TV shows.
The channel even tried their hand at original scripted content recently with the series “Slasher“, starring Kaite McGrath. The second season just premiered on Netflix.
But it seems like today we have bad news. The end of an era. NBC has decided to shut down the Chiller Channel effective beginning on January 1, 2018.
This news comes to us via the TV Answer Man, with an NBC spokesperson telling the site, “NBC Universal will discontinue Chiller as of January 1, 2018.”
The spokesperson didn’t give any further details on the decision but many believe it has everything to do with Verizon, Charter, and Dish dropping the channel earlier this year.
While those drops weren’t catastrophic, the final nail in the coffin came recently when Cox dropped the channel, effectively pulling it out of around 40 million homes.
