Discovery Real Time Extra to become Discovery Shed on 20th March

Discovery Real Time Extra will be removed from all platforms (cable and satellite) to make way for a new channel called Discovery Shed. Discovery Shed will launch on the 20th March and will be available on Virgin TV from launch.

Discovery say the new channel will be “the place for men who like good old practical activities to escape to”. DIY, fishing, motoring, building and adventure will all feature on Discovery Shed.

It’s thought Discovery Shed will keep the same channel number as Discovery Real Time Extra – channel 274.

  1. Yes, it will include fishing programmes.

    Discovery Shed will have fshing, DIY, construction, cars, bikes and outdoor extreme adventure programmes.

  2. Just reviewed todays schedule and 75% is fishing, fishing does not interest me , why not have created extra new channel “Discovery Fishing” and leave “Shed” for the DIY stuff ?

  3. I just do not understand why they have renamed Discovery Realtime Extra, Discovery Shed when the only programs broadcast are fishing ones. So much for the promised “DIY, fishing, motoring, building and adventure will all feature on Discovery Shed.” Not a chance. Whatever happened to The New Yankee Workshop, The Great British Woodshop and such programs? Let’s see a more balanced viewing list PLEASE!
