Travel Channel, Fine Living en Food Network stoppen in Benelux

Some of their shows will move to Discovery (Expedition Unknown and Salvage Dawgs), TLC (House Hunter and Beachfront Bargain Hunt) and Discovery ID (Most Terrifying Places in America).

Proximus' pay channel packs are now getting utterly expensive.

BBC Entertainment, BBC FIRST, FOX, Nat Geo Wild HD, Discovery Science, Discovery ID, Discovery World, History Channel, Brava, Mezzo Live HD, VH1, MTV Live HD, MTV Hits, Travel Channel (closing down), AMC (closing down)

BBC Entertainment still lacks Dutch subtitles after all these years... Telenet costumers can watch it for free with Dutch subtitles.

"Kids channels" (€5.95 / month for 5 channels)
NickToons, Boomerang, Nick Junior, Pebble TV, Studio 100 Hits
They should stop selling these theme packs and concentrate exclusively on the former Multi pack.
 
Food TV NZ has rebranded to Food Network.
The rebrand was on December 1st and was a conseuqence of the sale of it and Living Channel from a local company to Discovery in 2014, and the rename is due to the buying of Scripps.

Living Channel might even shut down soon. SBS owns the license to Food Network as a terrestrial channel in Australia.

The rebrand of FOX to FOX Channel is a side effect of the deal with Disney, for what I know.
If this happens to other countries, it would be fine. I’m waiting for Baby TV closure, and replacing it with Disney Junior (and also Disney XD and Disney Channel), or FOX Kids on providers that carries Baby TV, but not Disney, like beIN and My-HD in the MENA region.

The logo is just the same color as TRT World, so this channel may become only for news, just like TRT World.

TRT's other foreign channels need to follow the footsteps of the non-English CGTN channels. The only all-news channel in the CGTN network is the English one.

We are near 2019, and still there isn’t any CNBC Europe graphics on this channel, and will stay 4:3 forever.
