We're shuffling ever closer. Surely it's not much further now. :)

I suppose it foes take a lot of time to sort out, especially as the last time we had knightmare challenge was owned by a differnt company, therfore they have to go through the renewal rights processm which we knbow takes aaaages, could be a ratings winner for them though

That post appears to be about fun house rather than Knightmare

Knightmare is the "another kids show" they are waiting to pair it up with. (Fun House has already been acquired.)

Well, it might be Knightmare.
But we know they're trying to acquire several children's TV shows at the moment. It could be any of them - although Knightmare makes the most sense.

I didn't know they are trying to acquire other childrens tv shows. Wonder which one's? Just as long as they can acquire Knightmare, i don't mind! :)

Challenge have been posting about this for months on Facebook and Twitter, they have explicitly stated more than once that they intend to pair up Fun House & Knightmare and are waiting for the latter before they announce a date for the former - it's no great secret!

EDIT: Found a couple of the posts where they mentioned it:

Although they may have given up on that plan now.

At a certain point, having already purchased Funhouse, they'll need to show it, even if they can't get the rights to Knightmare.

I believe if that was the case, Challenge would have said something. I know they will have to show Funhouse at a certain point. But from what I have seen, Challenge are still trying to do a deal for Knightmare.

I do believe a deal will be sorted. Fingers crossed!
