Carriage disputes with StarHub[edit]

On May 30, 2018, StarHub announces it plans to discontinue seven Discovery channels, marking the end of partnership between Discovery and StarHub for more than 20 years, including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, Discovery Asia, Discovery Science, Eurosport, and Setanta Sports on both StarHub TV and streaming service (StarHub GO) at the end of June 30 due to StarHub's unpaid carriage fees and price increase. Discovery's expanded lifestyle channels, with the exception of HGTV, Asian Food Channel, Food Network and Travel Channel on both platforms are ceased transmission on August 31. On July 3, all seven Discovery channels was replaced by Gusto TV, CuriosityStream HD, Travelxp HD, Makeful HD, Fight Sports HD, GEM TV HD, and Colors Tamil HD. In the meanwhile, all Discovery channels (including HGTV, Food Network and Asian Food Channel) will continue to air on Singtel TV.
