Discovery Communications has launched Discovery GO, a TV streaming service in the US, giving viewers access to live and on-demand content from nine US networks in the Discovery portfolio. Discovery GO users can view content from Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery, Science Channel, Velocity, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Life.
“The launch of Discovery GO represents an important first step in providing viewers with access to our award-winning content anytime, anywhere on practically any device,” said Paul Guyardo, chief commercial officer, Discovery Communications. “This aggregated TVE streaming service and strong user experience is made possible by Discovery’s 30-year commitment to content ownership and our global learnings in the space, and also serves as an important promotional platform to complement and support our TV brands. We look forward to giving pay-TV customers more of what they want in Discovery GO.”
“Compelling authenticated offerings are essential to our relationships with viewers and distributors, and we are proud to join with our MVPD partners to bring Discovery GO to audiences – providing a robust lineup of programming and even greater value to subscribers across the U.S.,” added Bruce Campbell, Chief Development, Distribution & Legal Officer, Discovery Communications.
With Discovery GO, viewers can browse by each of the networks featured, find programmes organised into 14 genres, or explore specially curated playlists. Users also can create their own watchlists and search the Discovery GO offering for series and episodes across all nine networks..
Discovery GO is available at DiscoveryGO.com and through iOS and Android apps, with additional platform launches in the coming months.
