Discovery Science and Animal Planet go off air from My-HD due to non-payment of fees.
Discovery has discontinued its service on My-HD, effective November 21, 2019, BroadcastPro ME can reveal. Discovery Science and Animal Planet will not be available on the platform anymore due to non-payment of fees.
“We have switched off the channels from My-HD with great reluctance. Removing our award-winning content from consumers is never something we take lightly,” Amanda Turnbull told BroadcastPro ME when asked for a comment.
“We have had a contract with My-HD since they launched in the region and have always supported them. Unfortunately, we feel that this collaborative approach is no longer being reciprocated. Therefore to protect our IP, and for the first time in MENA, we have been forced to take this action.”
My-HD has been touted as one of the most affordable pay-TV platforms in the MENA region. BroadcastPro ME has reached out to My-HD for comment.
