Warner Bros. Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific is a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery that operates several television channels in Asia and Australasia, along with the Discovery+ streaming service.[2]

In April 2022, WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks Asia Pacific (founded in 1989) merged with Discovery Asia-Pacific (founded in 1994) after their owners, WarnerMedia (then owned by AT&T before being spun off), merged with Discovery, Inc. It has consequently been announced that Discovery+ will become one with HBO Max.

Discovery's expanded lifestyle channels, with the exception of HGTV, Asian Food Channel, Food Network and Travel Channel on both platforms are ceased transmission on August 31. On July 3, all seven Discovery channels was replaced by Gusto TV (until 23 November 2020), CuriosityStream HD, Travelxp HD, Makeful HD, Fight Sports HD, GEM TV HD, and Colors Tamil HD.
