Quest, a low-profile channel, are set to be announced as the new home for the highlights from the Championship, League One and League Two.
Channel Five have decided to not renew their contract to show the highlights after they failed to bring in the viewing numbers.
They originally gained the rights to a three-year deal from the BBC and have shown them on Saturday at 9pm for the past three seasons but only managed to attract 500,000 viewers – half of what the BBC were bringing in.
The EFL even had disagreements with Channel Five over the broadcaster’s decision to hire Colin Murray as a presenter to replace Lynsey Hipgrave and George Riley.
The pair were a popular duo on the show and the EFL reportedly wrote to the every club in the Championship and League’s One and Two telling them not to endorse Channel Five’s decision.
Quest, a branch of Discovery Network, are a relatively unknown network having only been around since 2009 but this isn’t their first venture into broadcasting sport.
In 2014, they broadcast the Schalke 04 Cup, a pre-season tournament hosted by the Bundesliga side that also featured Newcastle United, West Ham United and Spanish side, Malaga.
The channel has also featured competitions such as the Dubai Challenge Cup, Speedway highlights, the British Superbike Championship and the Home Series International Snooker.
The BBC, who broadcast the highlights between 2009-2015, were said to be interested in regaining the rights but the EFL favoured interest from Liberty Group, who run Eurosport and the Discovery Channels as well as Quest.
