Foxtel, Discovery sign multi-year deal

Gold Rush, part of factual bag to stream on Foxtel

Australian pay TV operator Foxtel and US factual giant Discovery have signed a multi-year agreement through which Discovery’s content will be available to Foxtel’s viewers.

The deal covers premium factual, lifestyle and entertainment content from Discovery’s flagship brand Discovery Channel, as well as TLC, Discovery Turbo and Animal Planet.

Programmes include Aussie Gold Hunters, Gold Rush, Deadliest Catch and Fast N’Loud, which will also be available to stream on demand on Foxtel.

In addition, Discovery’s true crime network Investigation Discovery will launch on Foxtel for the first time in February.

Foxtel chief commercial officer Amanda Laing said: “This new future-fit agreement reignites a relationship with Discovery that dates back to Foxtel’s launch in 1995. The multi-genre, multi-channel, multi-rights deal has been tailored to meet the huge appetite Australians have for great factual, documentary, reality and true crime content.

“The launch of Investigation Discovery, together with our existing Crime + Investigation channel, confirms Foxtel as the home of true crime. Along with a greatly expanded on-demand library from Discovery, Foxtel now has the world’s best true crime all in one place, making access to the factual entertainment that Australians love easier than ever.”
