Discovery Channel is a television channel which broadcasts to the Flemish market.

The channel launched on the analogue network of the major Flemish cable company Telenet on October 1, 2009.[1] Prior to that the Dutch version of Discovery had been available digitally in the area.[2] The launch increases Discovery's reach in the Flemish region to 2.4 million households.[3]

The launch of Discovery Channel on Telenet coincides with a major shift in Telenet analogue offer, which also sees the launch of EXQI Plus and vtmKzoom.[4][5]

Advertising sales for the channel will be handled by the established Belgian channel Vitaya.[6] At launch, hope was expressed that the channel would eventually carry original Flemish content.[7]

Before the launch of Discovery Channel Vlaanderen, Discovery Channel Nederland was available for digital subscribers.
