Discovery Channel Europe is the Pan-European version of the Discovery Channel.


Over the years, the Discovery Channel has been split into many different channels for specific regions. Most language regions in Western Europe now have their own versions of the channel, and the Pan-European is therefore now mostly available in countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

The channel is broadcast from the United Kingdom and holds an Ofcom license. The channel was registered as "Discovery Channel Europe" up until August 2006, when it changed its name to "Discovery (Central & Eastern Europe inc. Russia)".[1]

Discovery Channel Europe was launched from the UK in 1989. It launched on the Astra satellite in 1993. Eventually it split into different channel for different markets, such as Discovery Channel Benelux, Discovery Channel UK and Discovery Channel Nordic. Some of the countries that still receive the European version are Greece, Cyprus, the Balkans and the Baltic states.
