The Horror Channel has been acquired by Zone Vision Networks which has pledged to inject funds to provide it with new programming. Under the rejuvenation, due to take place next month, The Horror Channel will have new titles and classic horror films.
Zone Vision's channel portfolio includes Reality TV, Romantica, Club and Europa Europa. The company acquired the free-to-air Horror Channel, which broadcasts on Sky's digital platform, for an undisclosed sum from founder Tony Hazell.
"Horror is a very popular genre right now," said Zone Vision's programming chief Adam Robinson. "Our aim is to open up to a new audience, appealing to the mainstream viewer, as well as satisfying the existing hard core horror fan by acquiring cult movies."
