"Dear Viewers and Customers...
THE CRAFT CHANNEL·WEDNESDAY, 18 JANUARY 2017 We have released statements previously, but as there are now official public notifications being printed and posted online, we want to clarify the situation with the recent business history for The Craft Channel.
'The Craft Channel Ltd', which is the company which founded The Craft Channel brand was placed into administration on 22nd November 2016. On the 5th December 2016, an agreement was entered into for certain assets to be purchased by Agency Communications Ltd, who then commenced trading as The Craft Channel (the brand, but not the limited company).
Although from the perspective of viewers little has changed, behind the scenes the new owners are planning and strategising for the future success of the business. All existing order queries and refunds are being looked at, so please try not to worry. We are still trading and any new orders made should be sent out within 7 working days advised on the website, though in the majority of instances items should be received within 3-5 working days.

I really can't see how they are going to carry on - fewer companies and presenters and hardly any live programnes. I prefer it to Hochanda as well EarlyBird - too much CC from Sara D & friends. I use to like watching Phill but didn't even watch one show last weekend when they did the takeover.
