Discovery is launching its free streaming platform dplay in the UK & Ireland.
The ad supported platform will featured six of Discovery’s free-to-air channels Quest, Really, Quest Red, Home, Food Network and DMAX.
Shows including Quest’s EFL Highlights and Salvage Hunters, Quest Red’s Katie Price: My Crazy Life and The Bad Skin Clinic, Really’s Ghost Adventures and Helicopter ER and Food Network’s Tom Kerridge: American Feast and Rachel Khoo: My Swedish Kitchen will be available live and on demand.
James Gibbons, EVP General Manager UK, Ireland & ANZ at Discovery, UK, said: “We have nearly doubled the size of our UK audience in the last two years – and increased our free to air scale from two to six channels. The launch of dplay is the next step in our strategy to deliver to British audiences the best real life entertainment, whenever and wherever they want it. The free streaming service will also increase opportunities for advertisers to engage with audiences across multiple platforms.”
dplay is available to download on web and App Stores (iOS and Android).
It will be available on partner platforms and roll out on additional devices and platforms, in the first half of 2020.
