After removing Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, a thing already done, RCS&RDS eventually sent a letter to its subscribers ask them to prepare for extraordinary adventure and to inform them, in the end, that the 2 channels already removed from the program offer on December 1st will be replaced by Digi Animal World and BBC Entertainment.
For the moment, on RCS, History channel runs instead of Discovery Channel.
