Discovery Channel launched in Europe in April 1989.[2]

The Dutch Discovery distinguishes itself from other versions by having broadcast live sports events. In late November 2008 it broadcast three matches from the Eredivisie. The highest rated of these matches was seen by 805,000 viewers.[3][4][5]

In August 2009 the channel switched to the 16:9 widescreen format.[6]

In May 2012 Discovery Networks Benelux launched a HD simulcast of Discovery Channel in the Netherlands and Belgium, replacing Discovery HD Showcase and was first introduced by UPC Netherlands.[7]

Animal Planet, Eurosport 1, Investigation Discovery and TLC are also widely available. Eurosport 2, Discovery World and Discovery Science are available as well, but they are only distributed as part of bonus packages.
