Discovery branded channels will no longer be carried on the Middle Eastern DTH platform OSN after the two parties failed to reach agreement on a new carriage deal.
Discovery Channel, TLC, Discovery Science and Investigation Discovery have all been pulled from the satellite provider.
In a statement Discovery said: “Discovery has been a partner with OSN for more than 12 years. It proposed several different options to OSN to ensure that our MENA fan base could continue to watch the shows they enjoy.
“Unfortunately, OSN has refused to finalise negotiations. Due to this, and despite its best endeavours, Discovery has been forced to terminate the agreement.”
In February, OSN announced it was closing its own branded sports channels, with the exception of its cricket network.
