Agreed - but everything adds up. It's a new channel from Discovery and at exactly the time we were told the replacement to Animal Planet would be launched. I am hoping that he is wrong but my instinct is telling me this is it... They also never said the replacement channel would be of the same genre.

New Discovery Real Time - channel 155

So this channel launched yesterday on channel 155 and based on what Thinus is saying, this is the long awaited and anticipated replacement for Animal Planet! What a let-down! Nothing like what it sounded we would be getting - almost just a mirror image of the TLC channel!
