Following the strategic cooperation agreement between Doğuş Media Group and Discovery Communications signed in 2015,[7] Discovery Communications approached to acquire NTV Sports from Doğuş Media Group, in 2018. Parties agreed terms for the transaction, which was completed in 31 January 2018.[8][9] On 6 March 2018, it was announced that the channel will cease their broadcasting and it will be replaced by DMAX.[citation needed]

The take-over took place at 22:30 local time, right after the credits of "%100 Futbol", the weekly football punditry feature of the channel, which was aired after the The Intercontinental Derby game played on 17 March 2018.[10][11]
