Discovery Channels moved and now are difficult to receive in the Med
The Discovery group of channels, has changed frequencies and satellite beams.
They used to be on the European beam, allowing for easy reception across all of Europe. The UK beam, also known as spot beam can make things tricky for customers outside of the UK.
As a rule of thumb, if you can watch BBC and ITV, the changes should not cause any trouble.
The channels now are on:

Investigation Discovery Ireland
