Discovery Channel leaves Spain’s Canal+

Spanish Prisa TV’s satellite pay-TV operator Canal+ seems to be experiencing a crisis, with  subscriber numbers stalling and now premium channels beginning to leave its schedule.

According to market sources quoted by Mundoplus.TV, Discovery Networks is to remove its main channel Discovery Channel from Canal+ after rumours that Discovery is to buy into Eurosport.

Discovery Channel was one of the early channels to launch on the platform back in 1997. But recently the American company changed its strategy in Spain by launching a DTT free-to-air channel called Discovery MAX and this has led to Discovery Channel losing some of its attraction to viewers.
