  • Identified

    We are currently experiencing issues with multiple Discovery-owned channels. The problem is at the video source, and Discovery is actively working on fixing this. Some viewers may notice frozen frames and video distortion (glitches). These issues would also be present in DVR recordings. Heavily corrupted recordings are removed automatically, so some viewers might notice that they are missing recordings of recent broadcasts.
