Jan 1 when they put the Opera network in place of the Discovery Health they are losing my service. I will really miss the health mysteries and Dr. G for this program. This is doing educated viewers a great diservice putting this burnt out icon talk show host in it's place. I don't hate her show but to remove an educational program run by doctors for this is ignorant, but I guess most people could care less about learning about their health as to having this sensationlist wonder black billionaire and her Phd Phill psyco babble. But I'm sure the net works has decided more people will view this than anything that might educate them at all. So once again the majority is wrong just like they were with Obama. Both of them suck.

The Oprah Winfrey Network is owned by Discovery Communications and they are removing Discovery Health due to low viewer ratings. I take this as Discovery Health channel is completely going away on all cable/satellite services.

See below:

In November 2009, it was announced that Discovery Health Channel will become defunct and replaced with a new network owned by television personality Oprah Winfrey at 12:00 pm Eastern/Pacific (11:00 am Central) on January 1, 2011

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is a future U.S. specialty channel, set to be launched at 12:00 pm Eastern/Pacific (11:00 am Central) on January 1, 2011, and is owned by Discovery Communications. The network will replace the Discovery Health Channel on cable and satellite feeds due to low viewer ratings.

By context I guess you mean the OPRAH network not an "opera" network. Dang say what you mean. I thought you were going to have to hear a fat lady sing. Well I guess you still are either way.

I agree with the first post. I love discovery health and I could careless about watching her favorite things. I do watch a few of her shows every now and then. But come on, her own channel??? The hell with that! I'm gonna miss Discovery Health!

I am not happy about this; I love Discovery Health! I did read that Mystery Diagnosis and Deliver Me is going to be on TLC. I love Untold Stories of the ER and the other live ER show (Live and Death in the ER?) I can think of plenty of other channels they can taking off the air, starting w/CSPAN...does anyone really watch that??? and a million of the infomercial and the other million shopping channels. My cookies are really frosted over this!!!:(

I personally do not watch Oprah.

She is an Obama supporter. She can't be all that smart!

To "Not Oprah Fan", I must say I disagree...those billions didn't get in her bank by accident. Go, Oprah!! Continued success to you and your team. At least we know some people are employed!!

Oprah is ok and I'm sure the majority of $ would go to someone who truely is entertaining and not to a few who would be interested in an odd thing like health. I also do not like the l000 ways to die program. Which I think is made up. But I'm sure it has higher ratings and brings in more $. I am glad Opera is for gay rights and actually wore the gay rainbow while sitting next to Obama. But I still don't like her show. I'ts just another talk show.

It's not going to be her show on around the clock people. It's a lot of different shows on different topics teaching people how to 'live their best life'. It's going to be awesome; much better than some of the stupid shows on Discovery Health. I personally can't wait and am very excited about it.

Your right there is the Science channel, and Nature channels, National Geographic and lots of learning channels. I guess I was fortunate and don't need someone to show me how to live my life the best. I hope she helps you poor dear. Your life must be unmanagable. I guess anything on daytime TV other than Judge this would be an inprovement.

I love the discovery health channel. The OWN channel will be taken off my favorites channel guide. She is not a part of my viewing world.

Many of these shows have moved to fit tv (Dr G, Untold Stories...two of my favs for ex.) BUT I have Direct TV and Fit TV costs extra. I am beyond angry. I can't even stand the OWN promos...if you listen, they are all about "what moves" her...I DON'T CARE! I want Dr. G and Untold Stories of the E.R. and I don't want to pay extra for it!

U people are really sad! I bet u call yourselves God fearing human beings! Yall sit around & put down people who reach for the stars! Get ur heart right cuz God will judge you! If anyone feels that Obama, oprah or whomever it may be isn't doing a good job, get off ur butt reach for the stars & do better. Ur either racists or ur just a hater. Either way ur being led by the devil.

Mystery diagnosis, Doctor G forsenic medical examinor, Emergency Room trama's. was interesting to the point you had to run to the bath room during commercials. I guess if they will still be offered at a $ then it will benifit the production of such inventive and educational viewing mixed with suspence. I think I will pay the difference and just leave Opera off favorites list. And this is so not Racist, because I had rather see Opera than that quake Dr. Phill who is such a goody two shoes, and likes to lecture people like only his psychology will help people. Everyone uses natural born psychology in dealing with kids, and others. Psychology is almost a religion of sorts. Most of the things they say are in the Bible to begin with and behavorism is not proven to be effective, as psychiatrist who give real chemicals to repair real mental imbalances. But if the simplitons want to have their cake and it it to then then they should. Talk shows bore me to death from Ellen to Tara Banks and she is so not black.

Freak you ok? Apparantaly you just don't freaking care about life? IS THAT IT?! WELL FREAK YOU BECAUSE UNLIKE ALL OF YOU WHO DON'T FREAKING CARE ABOUT HEALTH AND TO SAVE LIVES, THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ARE ACTUALLY SMART ENOUGH AND BRAVE ENOUGH TO SAY THAT OPRAH IS CLUELESS, AND AN OBAMA SUPPORTER! LONG LIVE DISCOVERY HEALTH CHANNEL LOVERS! WE WILL SERVE JUSTICE AND GET THESE SHOWS BACK ON THE AIR! THIS I PROMISE!
