Discovery World is a European pay television channel which features programming in the fields of travel, culture and history. Discovery World offers a mix of history, culture, real-life stories, investigation, mystery shows, factual series and documentaries. Its programming is mainly in English and locally subtitled. In some countries the advertisements and announcements between programs are localized.


In Europe the channel started as Discovery Civilisation, also called Discovery Civilisation Channel, in the UK the 1 October 1998, alongside the Sky Digital's launch and later followed by other European countries.[1] Discovery Civilisation focused on history-related programs. On 18 April 2008 the channel changed its name into Discovery World and extended its program lineup to also include programs about culture, crime and "mysterious phenomena".[2][3][4]

In 2013, the channel got replaced by Discovery Turbo Xtra in Central and Eastern Europe. On 31 March 2016, the channel got replaced by Discovery Family in Africa and the Middle East.[5] The network has closed down in Italy,[6] Portugal[7] and Scandinavia.[8]
