Discovery launches more channels on DStv

Discovery Networks CEEMEA is to launch two new channels on the South Africa-based pay TV platform DStv.

From October 14 Discovery ID (Investigation Discovery) and female-focused TLC will be available to DStv Premium and DStv Compact subscribers in South Africa and across the African continent.

The launch of the channels takes Discovery Networks’ portfolio on DStv to six, including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Discovery World and Discovery HD Showcase. Both of the new channels will have commercial airtime added in the first quarter of 2012.
