Television channels

Former television channel


In 2007, Discovery Networks Europe decided to localize its networks across Europe. This resulted in the establishment of Discovery Networks Deutschland, Discovery Networks Benelux, Discovery Networks Nordic, Discovery Networks UK & Ireland, Discovery Networks Italia and Discovery Networks EMEA (which served all other territories).[3][4] As of 2011, localized operations in the United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland, Germany, Italy, Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Norway & Finland), France and Benelux (Netherlands & Flanders) fall under Discovery Networks Western Europe.[5] All other operations in Europe are operated by Discovery Networks CEEMEA in Warsaw.[6]

In November 2014, Discovery Networks Western Europe was split into Discovery Networks Northern Europe and Discovery Networks Southern Europe.[7]

Travel Channel, Fine Living and Food Network closed in the Netherlands and Flanders on 31 January 2019. Content from these former Scripps television channels has been integrated into the programming of Discovery, TLC and Investigation Discovery in the Benelux.[8]

In 2019 Discovery Benelux launched Dplay, a video on demand streaming service with content of Discovery, TLC and Investigation Discovery.
