Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

According to Radio Times, we are going to be losing access to the Discovery Channel within a month, how will we be compensated if this happens? As I'm guessing we should get a replacement channel to take its place http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2017-01-26/discovery-uk-is-threatening-to-pull-its-channels-from-sky-...

Re: discovery channel

These sort of 'open letter' theats happen all the time. And usually get resolved...

Re: discovery channel

@tzr if Virgin is anything to go by H2 appears to be cheaper than History so that would be more cost effective. (H2 is on L, you need XL for History)

Re: discovery channel

Think if Discovery does leave, Now tv needs to be competitive with what it hopefully puts in the entertainment pass.May even be the case in the long term as since Now tv launched there have been new services from the likes of Tv player,Bt & Talktalk which have cheap channel packages.

                                Have noticed in press release that the owners of Discovery mention Sky do not want to pay more due to overpaying for football.But dont mention that via Eurosport they need more money due to what they spent on the Olympics and that they have had this row with Talktalk and left and also on other platforms abroad.
