Discovery has launched its free streaming service, dplay, in the UK with iOS and Android apps available to download today.
The advert supported streaming service brings together content from Discovery’s free-to-air channels; Quest, Quest Red, DMAX, Food Network, Really and Home and will be added to other platforms next year.
Already available in nine other markets, dplay’s content line-up includes 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.
Discovery’s James Gibbons 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.”
