Discovery TV pulls plug on fishing

Angling Times reports what has been rumoured for some months regarding Discovery TV's future plans for fishing coverage.

The channel will not be commissioning any new angling programmes this year because it has such a strong back catalogue of shows, one of its senior commissioning editors told the paper.

But Dan Korn, vice president of commissioning for Discovery UK, said he believed the channel could continue to serve viewers from its "strong inventory" of programmes already filmed.

They include numerous programmes featuring pike fishing, including the acclaimed Predators series.
