Discovery US launches aggregated TVE streaming service

MUMBAI: US infotainment broadcaster Discovery Communications announced today the company’s first US TVE streaming service, Discovery Go. It will connect viewers with live and on-demand access to award-winning shows and series from nine US networks in the Discovery portfolio – Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery, Science Channel, Velocity, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Life.

Discovery chief commercial officer Paul Guyardo said, “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. 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.”

Discovery chief development, distribution and legal officer Bruce Campbell said, “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 US.”

With Discovery GO, viewers can browse by each of the networks featured, find programmes organised into 14 genres – such as Survival and History, or explore specially curated playlists. Users also can create their own watchlists and easily search the Discovery Go offering for series and episodes across all nine networks. In addition to access to bluechip programming, like ‘Racing Extinction’, Discovery Go will feature series available on-demand and next-day including ‘Gold Rush’, ‘90 Day Fiance’, ‘7 Little Johnstons’, ‘Pit Bulls And Parolees’ and ‘Survivorman’.

Discovery Go is available at DiscoveryGO.com and through iOS and Android apps, with additional platform launches in the coming months. To unlock the full power of Discovery Go, viewers can authenticate with their MVPD provider credentials.
