Discovery returns to Numericable

Discovery Channel is to return to French cable homes on Thursday (August 8) after a two-week absence.

Discovery and sister channel Discovery Real Time were withdrawn from the Numericable network on July 25, much to the frustration of the subscribers, in a move put down to “non compliance with contractual obligations”.

Announcing the return of the two channels Numericable refers to a “misunderstanding over the distribution agreement between the two partners”.
