Dplay

Discovery is expanding its streaming service Dplay into the UK and Ireland.

The AVOD service, which is currently available out of 10 countries including Italy and the Nordics, will unite content from Discovery’s six free-to-air channels, including Quest, Really, Quest Red, Home, Food Network and DMAX.

The platform includes popular franchises from Discovery’s flagship free-to-air channels, with dozens of series available in boxsets.

Top titles 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.

Dplay is presently available to download on web and app stores, and will roll out on third-party platforms and additional devices in the first half of next year.

James Gibbons, EVP and GM for the UK, Ireland and ANZ 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.”
