The network, which launched in 2007, hosts such unscripted series as Deep South Paranormal; Haunted Collector; Most Daring; Unexplained Mysteries; Psychic Investigators; Urban Legends; and more.

NBCU does not plan to discontinue any other network and has said that no employees will be impacted by Chiller’s closing.
