I'd love Eurosport, Premier Sports and BT Sport, but they are never going to be part of a Sky Sports package.  Sky Sports MIx would be enoiugh right now.

 

Of course, it is worth remembering that the $1.3billion Eurosport paid for the Olympics is a reason Discovery wants more cash.

Re: Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

Hope i am wrong but my guess would be if Discovery leaves we do not get a replacement,as there is a bigger problem for Sky with what they can do with there own packages losing about 12 channels or more if you add the +1hr channels.

Re: Discovery UK are removing Discovery channel!

I think Sky Sports Mix would be a good addition to the Now TV line up and it would be in there interest to increase Sky Sports subscribers. I know that Now TV is part of Sky TV but they could still provide rival sports channels like you can get Sky Sports Channels on Virgin and BT.

I am pleased that Discovery Channel is staying on Now TV and PBS America and National Geographical Channel may also be on the way.
