Discovery was forced to suspend the broadcast of their channels on OSN platform in MENA. The channels that will go offline include Discovery Channel, TLC, Discovery Science and Investigation Discovery.
Discovery has been a partner of OSN for more than 12 years and proposed several different options to OSN to ensure that subscribers in MENA can continue to watch the programs they enjoy. Unfortunately, all the negotiations could not be finalized and the termination of the contract was the only options for Discovery.
As a result, many Discovery fans across the Middle East will be deprived of shows including Say Yes to The Dress, Cake Boss, Gold Rush and Fast N ‘Loud with immediate effect. The termination also means that Discovery channels will be removed from OSN partner platforms.
Discovery hopes that an agreement will be reached to bring back channels for fans in the region and will provide updates as they become available.
