Discovery Kids (stylized as DK) is a Latin American pay television channel owned by Discovery, Inc. and headquartered in Miami, Florida, which started as a programming block on the Latin American version of Discovery Channel.

The channel is divided into six live feeds:[1] Pan-regional, Colombia, Southern, Mexico and Brazil, each with their own HD simulcast feeds. Until 2019, the channel had an HD version of the channel with different schedule broadcasting to all Latin America.

History

The channel was launched on 1 January 1996 and programming was aimed for older children and preschoolers. Preschool programming aired in the mornings, while shows for older children aired in the afternoons-evenings. In September 2002, preschool programming began airing around the clock on weekdays, while shows for older children only aired around the clock on weekends.

In January 2003, the channel changed its programming to target mainly preschoolers removing all shows for older children. In March 2005, the channel introduced "Doki". In 2008, Doki was accompanied by his friends "Mundi", "Gabi", "Oto", "Fico", and "Anabella" .

On 30 March 2009, the channel radically changed its logo, and adopted new programming, bumpers and schedules. Another image renovation was adopted on 25 April 2013.[2]

On 1 April 2016, Discovery Kids got a new logo to celebrate the channel's 20th anniversary.
