Could UKTV be scrapped?

To allow concentration on a Netflix rival... (September 2018)

The question is will it happen before the new financial year?

Really and Eden have disappeared from the channels section of UKTV Play (on Sky catch-up), although existing programmes are still available.

I wonder if this is just a technical error, or if it's linked to the upcoming break-up of UKTV?

That not what was planned?

The BBC and Discovery have agreed their terms: Good Food, Home and Really will go to Discovery, with the remaining channels being taken over by BBC Studios.

Discovery will also launch a worldwide streaming service, which will have exclusive streaming rights (outside of the UK, Ireland and China) to all of the BBC’s natural history and science output.
