As a consumer, do what you have to do. Comcast is responsible for channels being there, they have no control over content. Apps on X1 boxes take months, they don’t materialize instantly, especially in a pandemic

It is a streaming service to provide their content. It exists so Discovery Networks has total control of what their customers see and how. There is no need for a cable tv provider for determine which of their channels they carry, nor financial deals. People objected to cable providers choosing what they provide. Basically they get 100% of the subscriber fees. They are edging traditional cable out.

Why does Discovery Plus exist? This is bad. I’m a widow now and pay well over $200/ month for Comcast as it is! And I don’t even have any movie channels!!! So what’s going to happen to the original Discovery?!?!!??

Discovery will be right where it is, but there’s no guarantee they will keep all of the same shows or air the new episodes there first.

Drop cable tv and choose to pay for only what you choose to stream.

I was waiting to see what happened with the programs I watch, Travel channel has moved ALL of my favorite programs to Discovery+. Why should we pay for cable  to watch reruns of shows we've seen? All of the shows they say are new have been really old versions renamed as new. I think xfinity should have some clout with the Discovery network stations. You have many very unhappy customers.  Will the shows they moved come to the Travel channel at a later date or are we just out of luck.  We are currently trying to decide if cable is still right for us or to go with strictly a streaming type service to get what we want. If Xfinity doesn't look into this issue and have your customers back . We are retired and trying to find places to cut in our budget so $240 a month cable bill is starting to look like it is going obsolete and streaming is the new way to go. Fight for your customers (40 years we have been with you) don't let the channels you sell as a package become rerun channels no one wants to view, or drop them and lower your prices.

But Comcast does control what they charge their customers. Even if it is discovery’s fault there is less content for cable users Comcast could lower the bills because of it since it’s not our fault either.

I know u all posted about this 3 months ago I have been waiting for  Discovery+ to come to Xfinity.  If you say Discovery+ into your voice remote it has a message on there that u can sign  up for notifications through Xfinity to get a text/message from them when its available I was so pissed that Ghost Adventures is no longer on Travel channel and have been patiently waiting.  So FYI for any of you waiting patiently

This is one rip off.  i use to enjoy watching Chip and Joanna and the discovery channels and tlc etc, now I have to pay more for what I am already paying for.  Do these people not have enough money that they are so greedy to use us!!!  Xfinity needs to compensate people for this, and I hope people refuse to get Discovery plus.  This is one greedy act on them!!!

This is sick!!  Will we get a refund from xfinity for what we already pay for?  I use to enjoy Chip and Joanna and loved the tlc station but refuse to pay more for greedy people who want more money and take advantage from customers.  I am banning Discovery plus and demand a refund from xfinity for what have have given me for what I paid for.  This is one sick greedy way to use people.  I hope you ban them also and demand a refund with your provider.

Good luck with that refund as Discovery Plus is a seperat streaming service and has nothing to do with Xfinity.
