My complaint:

The Travel channel is now showing only reruns as well as ID channel. I could afford the $6.99 a month to get the streaming service but their are a couple of problems. I would either have to buy a Roku, Fire Stick or a new TV all together. Also this seems like a money grab to move all new episodes of anything to a streaming service. I got Disney for the older shows I can no longer find. However with this one I feel that it was a bad move. I can at least get Disney on Playstation Network, Discovery is not an option for Playstation and I’m not watching TV on my phone.

Justified complaint?

Suggested solution:

Stop the money grab. Offer new content on cablesatellite and streaming service. Also offer on Playstation. I would have subscribed to Discovery if on Playstation and for the older content. Now I have an issue with the greed of this move. Ultimately a monthly money grab will result in cablesatellite subscribers deciding to drop their DiscoveryTravel channel packages this resulting in less viewers and revenue since providers will then just drop you all together. What's the point of having no new content and pay for it. Dirty pool Discovery channel and bad business move.
