Can You Imagine a World Without Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, HGTV and More?


StarHub Customers: Can You Imagine a World Without Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, HGTV and More?

Our viewers are part of our family and the reason why we do what we do. It is therefore our duty to let you know what is happening with your favourite Discovery channels on the StarHub platform in Singapore.

To reach viewers like you, Discovery negotiates agreements with the cable providers that deliver our programming to households across Singapore. Despite our best efforts, StarHub has declined all reasonable offers and we have reached an impasse in our negotiations to extend our agreement with them (read the official statement HERE). If StarHub does not reach a new agreement with Discovery, its customers may lose all 11 Discovery channels that are currently available on StarHub TV and StarHub Go.

So, how can you ensure you don’t lose your favourite shows and specials like Shark WeekCake Boss, Property Brothers and much more?

Thank you!

Why is this happening?

It is our responsibility to you, our viewers, to inform you of the situation as you are still paying for your StarHub subscription but will no longer be receiving our channels. 

This action is not one we take lightly and we apologise to all our loyal and passionate fans for the inconvenience.

In our negotiations with all our partners, we seek to obtain a fair price for the value of our channels. Unfortunately, we were not able to achieve this with StarHub, and as such StarHub has announced their decision to discontinue the channels offered by Discovery, on both StarHub TV and StarHub Go. 

After June 30, our viewers on StarHub will no longer be able to watch Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, Discovery Science, Discovery Asia, Eurosport and Setanta. 

HGTV, Asian Food Channel, Food Network, and Travel Channel will also be affected and transmission will be ceased by StarHub after August 31.

Despite StarHub’s announcement to cease transmission of our channels, we still hope to resume discussions.

What Can I do?

It is important for StarHub to hear from our viewers and loyal fans.

We encourage StarHub customers to voice support for their favourite Discovery channels and programmes by calling the StarHub Customer Service Hotline at 6820 1633.

Please spread the word with family and friends – in person and online – and let StarHub know you want to #KeepDiscovery
