Discovery Channel Finland is a television channel targeting Finland owned by Discovery Networks. It has programming similar to its U.S. counterpart, the Discovery Channel.

It was launched on September 1, 2007, replacing a former pan-Nordic version of the Discovery Channel. On the same day, the analogue terrestrial transmitters were shut down and a new digital network containing, among other, Discovery Channel Finland was launched. In the terrestrial network it is a part of both the Canal Digital and PlusTV packages.

The pan-Nordic version of the Discovery Channel had carried subtitles in Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and Danish. The new channel would only contain Finnish subtitles. [2]
