Quest fails to launch

Discovery have postponed the launch of their first non-subscription channel Quest at the eleventh hour. Well, at 10:00 this morning actually, when the service was due to start broadcasting. Despite transmitting a preview loop, complete with channel DOG from the early hours, a "coming soon" caption appeared instead of the first scheduled programme. The channel has been delayed indefinitely "due to a number of commercial factors".
