So, Star World is now going to be defunct in India. What remains now is both Star World ME & Star World Taiwan.

Why not they remove FOXLife India too?

Nobody's going to miss Marvel HQ. This channel was unnecessary from the very beginning.

Did TLC Turkey is going into (almost) "channel drift" with Tuesday Cinema block?

New program on DMAX Turkey! Storage Wars ( Turkish: Depo Savaşları ) will be on DMAX Turkey every weekday at 19:55 starting from November 1st.

DMAX Turkey also has History Channel programs. Pawn Stars, Ancient Aliens, Storage Wars

Note: DMAX and TLC are broadcast free in Turkey.


As J10 said, DMAX Turkey and TLC Turkey channels show movies. Also, DMAX Turkey is showing in Kickboxing.

- For example, Romeo Must Die was shown last Friday in Popcorn Generation (ie movies are shown) in DMAX Turkey. This Friday, Wo Shi Shei will be shown.

@J10 don't forget about TLC Germany, that's also FTA (as HGTV Germany)

Italy has no TLC, but it has a quite strong "older" brand that works just as the same thing: Real Time (under paywall it was Discovery Real Time), quite well known for its reality shows and the likes.

Rebranding it to TLC wouldn't work.

Discovery has one of the strongest presence of FTA channels here in Italy: Nove, Giallo, Real Time, DMAX, Motor Trend, HGTV, K2, Frisbee.. especially Real Time and DMAX are rather strong brands.

Paywall only has Discovery Channel and Discovery Science.

TLC Germany was airing the coverage of PyeongChang 2018.

There was also Fatafeat in 2006-2007, before Discovery acquired the channel few years later. The channel wants to be an Arabic Version of Food Network and other foreign cooking channels by having famous Arabic Chefs on their channel.

At that time, it was FTA, but then Discovery planned to encrypt the channel on beIN on April 1st, 2016, and become a premium channel, as the channel has been removed from Nilesat.

On December 7th, 2015, Discovery has launched Quest Arabiya from Abu Dhabi, in partnership with Image Nation. It was also FTA, but then the channel ceased transmission in 2019.

Hopefully, Discovery would be involved again in FTA market in MENA, just like Germany, Italy, and Turkey, as WarnerMedia is going to be spun-off by AT&T, and the sale will close in mid-2022.

Actually it was in January 2016. e2, the sister channel, continued until at least April that year.
It’s in 2015, this is the Turkish article:
CNBC-e bugün kapanıyor

e2 is the one closed in 2016.

Italy also used to have more paywalled Discovery Channels that closed in the years. Investigation Discovery and Animal Planet, channels that existed in Italy, now live in the form of categories in Discovery+ here.

If you ask me, it's a shame both don't exist anymore, especially Animal Planet, which has hardly been treated fairly :(

One of the worse things that happened when Premium Mediaset closed was Sky not salvaging ID and Studio Universal. Okay, the second would have been weird, as it used to be on Sky and closed the first time here.
Animal Planet was like the black sheep of the Discovery channels (pun not intended?)

Much like Sandra Equihua, Lauren Faust also tried pitching her own version of Jem And The Holograms. Much like with Sandra, her pitch didn't go through when the live action movie bombed.

According to Xiaolinpedia, "Xiaolin Chronicles" was supposed to be a three-season saga. Instead, a fan made a huge scandal across the internet because of the show's hiatus and demanded the show back. Even worse, the show's creative force and some of the international VAs passed away shortly after the show ended. How about that?

Apparently, Josh Keaton was in a boy band when he was a teenager.
