Re: Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

 While I love the NOWTV platform, it really should just have Sky channels and programmes.  I'd love to see all the other TV providers move to their own subscription systems, so we can move forward from the Sky and Virgin "pay for more than you watch" monopoly they hold.  Yes, it may be more expensive individually, but for this who only watch specific programmes it would be ideal.

 


@Bamindy  100% agree.  I find the virgin prcing very frustrating and it tends to be a case of getting all 250 or so channels (FullhouseTV) to get the two or three channels i actually want.  Now TV has freed me from most of this as I get Sky Arts, Fox and Sky Atlantic here and just get the most basic  player TV package, just so I can access sports channels as and when.

 

Apart from the annual Amazon Prime membership, I swop in and out of Netflix and Now Ents/Movies as it suits.  Having let my Now TV Ents lapse in recent weeks, I will be back for the season 6 of the Walking Dead next week as Amazon only goes to season 5.

I don't watch either on Virgin, so not too bothered.  And I could get both via TV player plus on a Fire stick.   Personally I'd rather Sky Sports Mix as it is only available via Sky & Virgin and nowhere else.  Alternatively add some more Sky content to on demand or extend the viewing periods.  Every episode of The Simpsons and Futurama along with long future dated expiry on GoT, Westworld and Walking Dead.  Maybe provide Six Feet Under.

Re: Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

You know, I like watching the Discovery channel and I think the photography is brilliant, don't so much like the American accented voice over though.

 

However, if and when Discovery leave NowTV I will not go chasing after them because if what you posted is true, i.e.  losing subs in America and want to make up their loses, then I will not go chasing after them.

 

If they have made bad business decisions in the US then that does not give them the right to try rip us off here in the UK.

Re: Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

I really hope that Discovery Channel can remain on Now TV as they are one of the best channels on it. I would like Eurosport to be available on Now TV in the sport section. I have welcomed the addition of Viceland and Nat Geo Wild to the mix. I would also like to see History Channel and National Geographical Channel on Now TV. Perhaps it is time that the sport rights had a cap on the cost so other channels are not lost.

If they were dropping Sky Atlantic I would be off, but as for the other channels, I could probably live without them even if they  weren't replaced even Sky Arts.    Would be nice to get a replacement, but it won't impact my subscription or lack of.
