Discovery Channel Netherlands is a Dutch television channel. Its primary target is men aged 25-39.[2]

Cable television has a very high penetration in the Netherlands, and the Discovery Channel is available from virtually every platform. It has enjoyed relatively high ratings for several years; in 2003 it had 1.5 percent share of all viewing, which had risen to 1.8 percent in 2008.

The Dutch Discovery Channel distinguishes itself from other versions by having broadcast live sports events. In late November it broadcast three matches from the Eredivisie. The highest rated of these matches was seen by 805,000 viewers.[3][4][5]

In August 2009, the channel switched to the 16:9 widescreen format.[6]

Animal Planet Benelux is also widely available in Netherlands. Discovery Science, Discovery World, Discovery Travel & Living and Discovery HD are also available in the Netherlands, but they are only distributed digitally.
