Discovery Communications bought 50% of the channel in mid-1998 - eventually taking over CBS' stake on January 11, 1999 - and changed the logo accordingly; the CBS logo was replaced by a lowercase "d" with Discovery's signature globe inside it.

Eventually, Discovery decided to use Discovery People's distribution for other channels, such as Discovery Health, and quietly shut down around 2000.
