Discovery takes Quest online

April 13, 2016

Discovery Networks’ free-to-air factual entertainment channel Quest is to be streamed online from this weekend.

Already available on Freeview, YouView, Sky and Virgin, the channel’s online launch coincides with the start of the FIA World Rallycross Championship which gets underway in Portugal on Sunday.

Tablets and mobile phone users will be able to watch via QuestTV dedicated apps soon. The live streaming will sit alongside the channel’s existing on demand and catch up service which is available via its website as well as some connected TV platforms.

“This is a further evolution of our digital presence that allows our audience to watch what, where and when they want,” said Simon Downing, SVP, Head of Quest. “Streaming Quest live online to complement our linear, catch up and on demand services is a milestone in the continued growth of the channel which will pave the way to reach even bigger audiences. The start of what promises to be a thrilling Rallycross season is the perfect occasion to go live online, bringing all the action direct to your devices.”
