Today PlayStation Vue emailed subscribers notifying them that the Discovery Family channel will be leaving the Access and Core plans and moving to the Elite plan. Now if you want access to the Discovery Family channel you will need to be an Elite subscriber as of November 29th 2017.
At that time if you did not upgrade to the Elite plan any DVR recordings will be removed and all on-demand content will be gone.
Here is the email they sent subscribers:
Sony has not explained why they are moving the channel and typically they do not disclose such details.
Yesterday just in time for Thanksgiving, PlayStation Vue also announced that they are giving away free upgrades to its Elite package but don’t expect an email telling you that you got the upgrade. Several readers yesterday told Cord Cutters News that they just suddenly saw a ton of additional channels in their PlayStation Vue app.
This upgrade will give lucky PlayStation Vue subscribers access to the $64.99 a month Elite plan that includes 90-plus HD channels. After the free upgrade ends, subscribers will automatically be returned to the plan they had before the free upgrade.
