Home (currently known as UKTV Style) will be a new look channel packed with inspirational home and gardens programming. Other home grown commissions, such as Celebrity Fantasy Homes with Gaby Roslin, Love The Place You’re In with Gordon Whistance and Gutted with Mark Durden Smith will play alongside the phenomenally successful US show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and popular series including DIY SOS, Escape To The Country, and Ground Force.
Jane Mote, Director of Factual, Lifestyle and New Media, said, “We’ve already got the leading Lifestyle channels in Pay TV but it was time for a makeover. Home gives viewers and web users a clear destination for all the best home and gardens programming and content.
Some of the shows planned for the relaunch are:
