@sorin96 Not that, besides a show like Top Gear would be more fitting on the modern Discovery Channel. Most "documentary" channels went downhill.

Due to COVID-19, Kuwait TV has terminated Kuwait Sports, Kuwait Kids, and Kuwait Al-Arabi. The first one has been terminated at 4 PM, and switches to Kuwait TV 1. In addition, the other two channels has been terminated at about 4:10 to 4:15, and are being switched to Kuwait Plus.

These channels are going to be on-air again after 5 AM. The only channels that are broadcasting for 24 hours were Kuwait TV1, TV2, Kuwait Plus, Ethraa, Al-Qurain, and AlMajlis.

Some channel updates on Bengal:

1. 4KHeritage HD replaced with CGTN Documentary HD because it’s no longer available on satellite.

2. AXN India replaced with AXN Asia.

On Bangladesh's national day (March 26), Titas Sports launched. Terrible timing. The operators are also under quarantine, Bangladesh's lockdown is shorter than two weeks, ending in a little over than a week from now (for now).

Next channel update hopefully after the quarantine. I wish they added Animax before Bengal's offices were on lockdown.

Anyway:

You might be interested to know , that loads paying TV channels inc. the Sky, Viacom and DIsney ones, have joined and welcomed the Sky Italia's initiative "Io resto a casa", inc. an IBAN code in order to send money to the civil protection

So, in addition to the normal DOGs, you get, on these channels, on the bottom left, translucent inscriptions with a long IBAN code (everything else will be explained in the promos running at every break on the channels)


That's similar to the RAI channels

Here’s a recording of Sony ESPN HD shutting down. I assume Sony ESPN SD and Sony Mix shut down the same way.

The shutdown was smooth I guess? Toonami shutting down was like watching 20 secs of horror.


Now the channel receiver is giving an unauthorised message.

News from Japan:

Yesterday the NHK oficially changed the logos of all its domestic television channels (NHK G, NHK E, satellite channels). I don't know if it's just me or the font and the positioning of the NHK logo makes me remind of BBC 2W.


NHK World Premium changed its bug for the first time since maybe its inception (conversion to 16:9 doesn't count). They dropped the egs and the NHK logo is larger and most screens cut the edges.

Also, FOX Sports and Entertainment and Dlife are just a couple hours away from shutting down. Many Japanese people got annoyed at Disney's decision of closing down Dlife because they thought it was one of the best channels or something.

"#Dlife ends its transmission today.
I watched British Bake-Off, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds and CSI. I like Phineas and Ferb, so Candace and Agent P."

For some reason I keep being reminded of this post I made on a Black Clover talkback thread: C&C - Black Clover - "The One With No Magic" [9/8]

It seems like the inspiration for Maya comes from his wife, mother, and sister.
The good news is I'm not scared anymore. The bad news is, as I have absorbed things, I am now freaking infuriated.
For nick@nite, and I thought full house was the only one skipped.., now George lopez is doing the same thing.. early Mon Jun 1 3:30am was No Free Launch, then skipped episodes to A Kiss is Just Kiss episode aired early Jun 2 at 4am. Very weird for nick@nite, obvi a sign that show won't last long
