Foxtel has announced the addition of LifeStyle HOME to XYZnetworks' group of LifeStyle Channels, LifeStyle YOU and LifeStyle FOOD.
From March, Foxtel will introduce LifeStyle HOME, a new channel dedicated to all things home and property. And given the success of reality programs such as Grand Designs Australia, Selling Houses Australia and The Block, it looks like a good move.
Replacing the How To Channel on Channel 119, LifeStyle HOME will showcase Australian and international programs on entertaining, renovations, investments, do-it-yourself home and garden shows and more.
LifeStyle HOME will take over current offerings from the soon-to-be defunct How To Channel including A Place in The Sun, Homes Under The Hammer, Holmes On Homes and Carter Can, as well as Colin & Justin's Home Heist, Property Virgins and Axe The Agent from the LifeStyle Channel.
"With LifeStyle HOME we are broadening our lifestyle offering to give our viewers more of the home and property content that they love, while bringing all of Foxtel's lifestyle programming under one banner from the team at XYZnetworks who specialise in this ever growing and popular genre," said Brian Walsh, Foxtel Executive Director of Television.
The LifeStyle HOME channel launches March 1, 2011 on Foxtel.
