Programming information is available on Discovery's TV listings page. We are not able to provide information on specific show times, other than what's available in the on-line guide. We cannot provide information about shows that have already aired.
Most popular shows on Discovery Channel do air more than once. If you've missed a specific program, check the show's schedule page. It displays all planned air times for the next two weeks. If you do not find a show you're looking for, it simply means it's not scheduled to air within that timeframe.
We look to offer Canadian viewers an opportunity to watch the best Discovery US programs as soon they are available.
As Discovery Channel Canada is separate and apart from Discovery Channel in the U.S., airdates in Canada and the U.S. may vary, due to rights clearances and delivery of the shows.
Viewers can always refer to our program guide to confirm the date and time of a show.
Please be aware that TLC, a cable channel owned by Discovery Channel in the U.S., is broadcast directly into Canada from the U.S. via your local cable or satellite subscriber. Any advertisements on that channel that refer to Discovery Channel programming relate solely to the U.S. channel. Discovery Channel Canada has no control over the promotions or content this channel airs.
DVDs, Videos, Merchandise and Products
Many (but not all) of the excellent documentaries, specials and series on Discovery Channel are available on VHS or DVD through the online Discovery Store.
If you can't find a DVD you're looking for in the store search, unfortunately it is not available by any other means. Some of the programs aired on Discovery Channel Canada are created by independent production companies and licensed for broadcast only. The copyright for these programs rests with their creators and therefore we do not sell reproductions of them to the public.
Contacting producers of a program
Many of the independent production companies who produce shows aired on our channel love to get feedback. Here are some shows and their respective production companies:
How It's Made - Productions Maj (www.howitismade.net)
Mayday, Greatest Ever - Cineflix - (514) 278-3140
Canada's Worst Driver/Canada's Worst Handyman, Proper Television - (www.propertelevision.com)
Music and Trailer information
Although we get many requests for details about composers and tracks of music used on both our programs and trailers, we cannot respond to these enquiries. Much of the music on the channels is specially commissioned and not commercially available. However, please note that in many instances the musical soundtrack is usually credited at the end of the program.
Using material from the website
Covering topics in science, nature, adventure, and technology, discoverychannel.ca is a perfect place to look for material on all kinds of subjects from animals to space, but we cannot provide individualized research on any given topic. Take a look through our A-Z section or use our search tool to find the information you need.
Please note that content on discoverychannel.ca (images, text, video, or interactive content) cannot be copied or re-used in any way. If you wish to share it with others, just point them to the site.
We occasionally receive requests for permission to re-publish images. Almost all of the images on the site are drawn from Discovery programs and are used under provision of fair comment or promotion. For copyright reasons we do not make images available for external use.
Why Quebec residents are sometimes excluded from Discovery Channel contests
Discovery Channel as well as many other companies, exclude Quebec residents from participating in national contests due to the laws applicable to contests. All contests in Canada are subject to applicable laws found in the Federal Criminal Code and Competition Act. In addition, the province of Quebec (through the Regie des alcools, des courses et des jeux du Quebec) imposes certain rules and regulations including certain filing requirements and the payment of fees on contests open to residents of Quebec. The additional rules and regulations are not imposed by any other province, and make it more difficult and expensive to operate a contest in Quebec.

Investigation Discovery (ID) brings justice to television with a deeper look into the world of crime, forensics, paranormal investigation and modern mysteries. ID offers arresting entertainment that delivers remarkable insight into the thrilling twists and turns of real-life investigation and the most intriguing puzzles of human nature.
There have been changes both large and small to the schedule since we transitioned from CourtTV to Investigation Discovery. "In Session" the afternoon courtroom series is an example of such a change. The contract for that program has ended and subsequently we no longer have the Canadian rights to broadcast it. We understand that there is a following for this program and to those of you who will miss it, We offer the assurance that our new Investigation Discovery channel programming will equal and even surpass the quality and level of engagement you have come to expect.
Stick around, we're confident you will like what you see. Thanks for being an Investigation Discovery viewer.
