Discovery launches dplay service in UK, Eire

Quest Red’s Katie Price: My Crazy Life

US factual giant Discovery is rolling out its AVoD service dplay in the UK and Ireland, collating content from six of its linear channels in the region.

The free streaming platform will combine content from the company’s six free-to-air channels: Quest, Really, Quest Red, Home, Food Network and DMax.

Launching this week, titles available include 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.

The service has now rolled out into 10 markets around the world with more to come, Discovery said in a statement today.

James Gibbons, executive VP and general manager for the UK, Ireland and Australia/New Zealnd 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 the web and iOS and Android app stores. It will be available on partner platforms and roll out on additional devices and platforms in the first half of 2020.
