Sky TV customers face losing 13 channels from their screens from 1 February according to consumer website MoneySavingExpert.com.

The channels including Eurosport, Animal Planet and TLC could be lost due to a contract row between Sky and the Discovery group of channels.

The report goes on to say that Discovery Networks UK and Ireland has been in contract negotiations with Sky, but the firms say they’ve now reached deadlock.

As a result, Sky TV customers with the Variety, Box Sets and Complete bundles as well as Now TV customers look set to lose the following 13 channels: Animal Planet, DMAX, Discovery Shed, Discovery Home & Health, Discovery History, Discovery Science, Discovery Turbo, Discovery, Eurosport 1, Eurosport 2, ID, TLC and Quest.

If you are under contract you may be able to cancel penalty free by contact the customer services department using the following section off your contract:

Sections 10 and 11 of Sky’s T&Cs read:​
“We may change any other Conditions for a reason stated in Condition 15(a) or 15(b) provided that if you reasonably consider that you would be materially disadvantaged by this you may end this Contract under Condition 11(a), even if you are within your Minimum Term.
