Discovery HD moves to channel 520

Discovery HD is now a simulcast of the standard definition version of Discovery.

Instead of it being on a different channel with a different schedule to Discovery standard-definition it’s now replaced Discovery standard-definition on channel 520 for HD customers.

Non HD customers will still see Discovery standard-definition on channel 520.
