Manila, Philippines – Discovery+, a streaming service under multinational mass media company Warner Bros. Discovery has officially exited the Philippine market this April 27. The announcement was made official on the streaming service’s Twitter account.
In several support articles posted by Discovery+ on its website, the decision to exit the local market follows Warner Bros. Discovery’s review of its content and streaming proposition in the Philippines.
“The Discovery+ website and app in the Philippines will be closing permanently, and you will no longer be able to watch shows on Discovery+ Philippines,” it stated.
It has encouraged its subscribers to watch other shows on WBD’s linear channels such as Discovery, TLC, Asian Food Network and HGTV.
Discovery+ has assured the public that it is only exiting the Philippine market, and no market exits will be expected in the near future. Moreover, Philippine-registered accounts will be inaccessible even overseas.
The platform launched in the Philippines back in October 2021 through a partnership with telco giant Globe.
