Yes it's a official all Discovery Channels leaving from 1st February and if most people want to double check go to Sky Community Forum to see.

Not exactly official. Discovery say unless Sky pay more they won't stay, Sky are saying they won't pay anymore and will let the channels leave. Just last minute negotiations spilling out in to the public.

Re: Changes to your NOW TV Entertainment Channels

I guess that if you really want Discovery there is always TV Player Plus on Amazon Fire Sticks.  Free trial for a month then £5.99/month.  The whole dispute may have blown over by then.

 

Interesting to see this development.   Discovery/Eurosport are making a pretty bold step.  Will be interesting to see how determined they are given that the bulk of their UK income most likely comes from their Sky agreement.   ITV seem to be developing their paywall with Box Office on the way.   I suspect the big Virgin/Sky bundles will soon disintegrate and there will be numerous packages from varied media companies.  Sadly if it goes the way of sport, it will mean three or four subscriptions instead of one ;-(

I'd rather they used the money saved to keep box sets like GoT, Walking Dead, Westworld etc. permanently on.  

 

I would have thought that Discovery/Eurosport would have had a hub like Netflix/HBONow for all of their channels before taking this action.  Well a better one than TV Player.

@ClockEnd Eurosport have their own player, which is currently £5.99 for a day pass or 12 months for £19.99 (£59.99 from Feb 1). I believe you can cast from it too?

Re: discovery channel

It does seem a bit like discovery are to an extent cutting off their nose to spite face. If course even if Sky do come to deal, no guarantee price will enable it to stay here.
