Discovery is set to launch QuestOD, a catch-up and live streaming service for its free-to-air factual entertainment brands Quest and Quest Red in the UK.
The service will be available online and as an app for iOS and Android and will make Quest content – including Championship English Football League highlights – available on-demand alongside Quest Red programming for the first time.
“There is a huge appetite for the Quest channels’ content, and we’re delighted to be investing in an on-demand service that makes this content available to fans across all platforms,” said James Gibbons executive vice-president, general manager of UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and head of commercial development for EMEA, Discovery.
“This new player gives fans the freedom to access their favourite content across multiple devices, and what better occasion to go live than with the launch of the EFL Highlights.”
Quest’s linear channel is due to launch in HD on Sky, Virgin, and Freesat on July 31. All other customers can access the channel in HD via the QuestOD player and app. Quest is available on Freesat 167, Sky 144, Freeview 37 and Virgin 172, and Quest Red is available on Freeview 38, Freesat 169, Sky 149, Virgin 215 and BT TV 38.
