Cable television has a very high penetration in the Netherlands and Belgium, and Discovery is available on virtually every platform. It has enjoyed relatively high ratings for several years; in 2003 it had 1.5 percent share of all viewing, which had risen to 1.8 percent in 2008.
The Dutch Discovery distinguishes itself from other versions by having broadcast live sports events. In late November 2008 it broadcast three matches from the Eredivisie. The highest rated of these matches was seen by 805,000 viewers.
In August 2009 the channel switched to the 16:9 widescreen format.
Animal Planet, Eurosport 1, Investigation Discovery and TLC are also widely available. Eurosport 2, Discovery World and Discovery Science are available as well, but they are only distributed as part of bonus packages.
