DISCOVERY SCIENCE explores the quirky side of technology, human progress, scientific discoveries and the people behind them. DISCOVERY SCIENCE is the third of three new Discovery brands coming to Canada this season (Discovery World HD and Investigation Discovery launched in August).
DISCOVERY SCIENCE is where cool and curiosity meet.Watching Discovery Civilization programs on DISCOVERY SCIENCE
DISCOVERY SCIENCE will also offer the programs and series that you have enjoyed watching on Discovery Civilization (now rebranded as DISCOVERY SCIENCE). Kindly refer to the following link for DISCOVERY SCIENCE scheduling inquiries and programming highlights:DISCOVERY SCIENCE TV ListingsProgram Scheduling
Programming information is available at the Discovery Science 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 SCIENCE 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 US Science Channel programs as soon they are available.
As DISCOVERY SCIENCE is separate and apart from Science 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 and Science Channel programming relate solely to the U.S. channel. DISCOVERY SCIENCE in Canada has no control over the promotions or content this channel airs.Producer Enquiries
Independent producers looking to learn more about the pitching process should review our Producer's Guide
. If you have suggestions for a story or segment on Daily Planet, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
.DVDs, Videos, Merchandise and Products
Many (but not all) of the excellent documentaries, specials and series on DISCOVERY SCIENCE 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 SCIENCE 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.Music and Trailer information
Although we get many requests for details about composers a
nd 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
Please note that content on sciencechannel.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 SCIENCE 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 contests
DISCOVERY SCIENCE 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.Subscribing to DISCOVERY SCIENCE and Digital Channels in Canada
