Trouble to be axed next month
Virgin Media Television has confirmed that Trouble will cease broadcasting on April 1.

The channel, which launched in February 1997 as an outlet for older kids' shows from The Children's Channel, will be replaced by a two-hour timeshift on a temporary basis. Virgin Media eventually plans to use Trouble's EPG slot for a third Living service to join Living and Living2.

Jonathan Webb, Virgin Media Television's managing director, said: "These changes will optimise the value of our EPG slots and will strengthen our proposition for our advertisers, our platform customers and, of course, our viewers."

Last month, Trouble+1 was replaced by Living2+1.
