Are there any plans in the near future to add National Geographic Channel to the Entertainment Package? I know that there is National Geographic Wild Channel in the Entertainment Package but I think it would be useful to add the other channel. Just recently, they've advertised some good programs on the National Geographic Channel.
I believe the National Geographic TV Channel was previously owned by the Fox Corporation (Now Disney) so with DIsney Plus coming to the UK next month (where i would guess this TV channel will be part of their service line up).
Based on the above i would have my doubts that National Geographic will be added or coming soon to NowTV (might be totally wrong mind and you never know what deals are done behind closed doors) 😡.
Looking over on the Disney Plus UK website it looks like National Geographic is part of their new streaming service starting from the 24th of March for £5.99.
I won't be subscribing to Disney Plus, where none of their content interests me personally and have too many streaming services on the go has it stands at the moment 😡.
Just received this from BT:
From the 1 April, NOW TV will be replacing the Nat Geo Wild channel with National Geographic on your BT TV service. The channel number won’t be changing, and you’ll be able to watch shows on National Geographic on 352 or 367 for HD.
Any shows you have recorded from Nat Geo Wild will no longer be available to watch after the switch on 1 April. It may take up to 24 hours for the channels to switch over, but there’s no need to do anything, it will happen automatically.
National Geographic also has some great new content, like ‘Mars’ and ‘Genius’, all available from the 1 April when the channel is launched on your NOW TV Entertainment Pass.
Now added, to Live TV and Box Sets.
81 series/documentaries is a very good selection.
Mars (Seasons 1 and 2) are both included, but no sign of Genius or The Hot Zone.
Quite a bit of crossover with the content on Disney+
Just seen the change tonight, nice to see Nat Geo added, but disappointed to see Wild has gone, I would rather lost one of the other channels,like fox or Comedy Central,MTV after all nowtv offer very few premium channels for what you have to pay & the streaming quality is poor,Disney offer lots of content albeit not live & is far superior quality streaming
Interestingly the arrival of National Geographic was announced in a recent e.mail also detailing the arrival of the other factual channels (although according to other websites these have now been delayed) but the e.mail mentioned nothing about it replacing Wild as far as I could see.
Really annoyed about losing Nat Geo wild. Mum 81 year mother watches nothing else. She loves it. Now at a time where she's stuck at home Nowtv decide to remove it without warning. Very very disappointed 😥
A selection of Nat Geo WILD content is still available, on demand, for example:
I would have thought national geographic wild was a sub-category of national geographic originally all the nature docs were on national geographic. Great news I reckon👍 if you want free nature documentaries there are quite a few on on YouTube now check them out.
