Travel Channel, Fine Living and Food Network will close down on February 1st, 2019 in the Netherlands and Flanders.
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.

"Entertainment channels" (€9.95 / month for 13 channels)
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.

It's already absurd to put FOX and BBC in the same package as the docu channels and the music channels. No one wants all of that.

Oh, and Proximus added Dutch subtitles on BBC Entertainment 2 years ago :sweat:

In addition, the channel is frozen and still uses its old generic ident from 2011 or 2012.

EDIT:
At 11:16 AM, the channel is back and here is what they air after the ident.

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.

What would you do if you were in charge of Universal Kids?
Anybody remembered when Gerald McBoing Boing had Cartoon Network City Bumpers? I vaguely remembered them.
If you're reading this, please dip your fries in mayon(n)aise.
I have another voice actor following me on Twitter, David Sobolov. He's known for many roles , including Shockwave (Transformers Prime), Gorilla Grodd (The Flash 2014, Justice League Action), Drax (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Tatsurion the Unchained (Kaijudo), and many more . This is so awesome.
