TV Advertising on Discovery Network

Operated by the Discovery Networks UK, the Discovery Channel was made available to British viewers in 1989. The network has since branched into various sub-channels, with the Discovery Channel retaining the majority of top-rated programming. Focusing mainly on content created to inform and entertain, the channel caters mainly to an inquisitive, teenage-to-adult audience with shows such as Myth Busters and How Is It Made? Its broadcasts, mostly created for the channel, centre largely around human nature; including its relationships with technology and the natural world.
