Are you a Discovery+ subscriber? Over the weekend you may have noticed that the option to watch dedicated channels of Discovery-owned shows from HGTV and TLC are gone. Instead, you will find only on-demand versions of Warner Bros. Discovery programming.

In a statement on Discovery’s website, the company confirmed this move:

As we continue to grow and provide the best streaming experience across all our products and through all compatible devices, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue our discovery+ Channels offer. 

discovery+ Channels will no longer be available at this time but you will still be able to stream your favorite shows, searching by their name or their cast using the Search tab. 

90 Day Fiancé, Fixer Upper, Chopped and Flipped, House Hunters, Property Brothers or Yes to the Dress and many others remain ready for you to watch.

Stay tuned for exciting new features and releases coming soon and rest assured that we always value your loyal membership. 

This all comes as Warner Bros. Discovery plans to merge Discovery+ with HBO Max later this year. It has been reported that the new service will be called MAX.

No word on why this change happened but it is very likely the first step in a merger of the two streaming services. Removing live streams may lower the cost of the newly combined streaming service to help it be more competitive with other services like Paramount+, Peacock, and Disney+.

For now, we will need to wait and see what these new features and releases are in the coming months.
