Discovery Channel is an Italian television channel.

Discovery Channel has been present in Italy since 1997 and has been exclusive to the Sky Italia platform since its launch in 2003. With the launch of Sky Italia, Discovery quickly branched out by launching the additional channels Discovery Travel & Adventure, Discovery Science and Discovery Civilisation, followed by Animal Planet and Discovery Real Time in 2005.

The present Discovery Channel logo was adopted on March 10, 2009.[2]

A timeshifted version of the channel, called Discovery Channel +1, started in November 2008.[3][4]

A high-definition simulcast of Discovery Channel started on July 20, 2009.[5] It was the first channel from Discovery Networks EMEA to be simulcasted in both SD and HD.
