      We don’t know why Twist has decided to stop operating, but they pulled out of all markets as of December 31:

    I live in Portland Oregon. I am really upset about the dropping of Twist from the programming. WTF? I guess everyone has to have fancy cable programming to get a bit of decor ideas etc. very bummed.

    I am very sorry to loose Twist, I watched it more than any other channel. I hope another channel will pick it up. I am retired and live alone, I can’t afford cable, so my TV watching will be cut tremendously.

    It’s such a great channel

    I’m in Knoxville, Tennessee. I watch a lot of the Twist channel. Where are the shows going? I tried going to truecrimetv .com so I’d know what channel Paranormal Survival was going to be on and it said that the page was for sale.

    Why? I watch twist 90% of the time!!! What can we do to stop their citting out our show?

    Its my belief twist was mismanaged. The didnt really give the viewing public what they wanted to watcdh. too badly really.

    Where will I find all my favorite shows?! Like Decked Out, Candice Tells All, Sell This House, etc.

  14. Karen St December 17, 2023 at 7:03 pm #

    What? I find it to be one of my favorite channels. Except for the paranormal programs.

    I really.hate to hear that the Twist Television Station is being dropped! It was my favorite station with excellent content and shows. I wish that you would reconsider the canceling of it! If nit; then just know that me and my family will miss it!

    Do let us know where what stations that shows are being transferred to?
    Thank you for years of good shows! Happy holidays and Merry Christmad! 🙏🎄🙏

      This wasn’t a decision made by us—Twist made the decision to stop operating across all markets:

  16. Jamie Morris December 19, 2023 at 2:46 am #

    Will still air in Buffalo New York market antenna channel 2.5? I watch it all the time!

    • Missy Kellor January 2, 2024 at 4:15 pm #

      The channel seems to have stopped operations everywhere across the U.S.:

  17. Cheryl December 19, 2023 at 2:43 pm #

    WHAT am I going to watch when Twist goes off the air!?? Are any other channels going to pick up some of the programming that Twist currently has? I can’t believe they’re dropping this channel -that’s just stupid.

    What happened to my twist television on today at approximately 5p.m? I was watching my favorite show Clean House and it switched to Crime TV. So where do we find the Twist television channel now in New Orleans, Louisiana?

    I hate this twist being dropped! Our family loved this channel. Not to many clean channels left out there.

    no no no its the only channel that my favorite tv show came on, FAB FIVE, QUEER FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY!!!! WHERE CAN I WATCH THE ORIGINAL FAB 5 SHOWS?

    • Missy Kellor January 2, 2024 at 4:31 pm #

      Hi Susan. It’s disappointing the programmer decided to stop operating. I’d encourage you to do some Googling and maybe leverage to search for the shows you’d like to keep watching.

  24. Laura December 25, 2023 at 12:55 am #

    This bites cause this was my Saturday night TV channel. I wish I could get it back.

    • Missy Kellor January 2, 2024 at 4:11 pm #

      It seems that Twist as a channel has ceased operation everywhere, unfortunately:

  25. Gabriella M. Huwatcheck December 27, 2023 at 8:33 pm #

    I am very disappointed that you are canning this network. This is the network that I watch the most. I enjoy the reno shows that this network has shown and I find them all fascinating. I sure hope you transfer all my favorite shows onto another network because I have been so happy watching these shows. They are not only interesting, but captivating in an interesting way. I want always to be seeing these shows, no matter what network on which they appear. You have a true follower of your interesting shows. Gratefully, Gabriella M. Huwatcheck.

      Hi Garbriella. This wasn’t a decision we made—it was made by the local broadcaster. After doing some further digging, it appears that Twist has decided to cease operations entirely:

  26. Robin Frazier December 28, 2023 at 2:27 pm #

    Hi. I’m truly sorry to see TWIST go off the air. I’ve gotten great pleasure from the programs on TWIST. Well I guess all I want to say is Thank you. For the pleasure you brought to the Frazier home. I do however hope that it’s not goodbye forever, so I’ll just say so long❤️

  27. Maribel December 29, 2023 at 2:49 am #

    I really enjoyed this channel to watch because it carried all of my favorite shows. It’s really a shame that it will no longer be available.

    • Missy Kellor January 2, 2024 at 4:08 pm #

      Yes, it’s always disappointing when a programmer decides to pull a channel people enjoy!
