Why have we now got to watch to catch a smuggler on Disney plus when you always watched on Nat G

Hi

 

I have been a Sky customer for nine years and always watched to catch a smuggler on National Geographic.  Now if you want to  watch it you have to have a subcription to Disneyplus. Why ?

 

What the point is having National Geographic on Sky if you can't receive the program

@010349 It will be on Disney plus because they have the rights to it.

Disney own a majority of the Nat Geo, so the question should be directed.

 

Sky have no control or say in how disney plus and Nat  Geo choose the programmes for their streaming and linear TV platforms.

As the Wikipedia article says:

 

It is owned by a company called the "NGC-UK Partnership", which initially was jointly owned by the National Geographic Society and British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB), but in 2006, Sky's parent company News Corporation (now The Walt Disney Company) purchased 25 percent of the stake in the partnership, followed by the acquisition of BSkyB's remaining 50 percent stake by its sister company, the Fox Entertainment Group.
