Discovery Channel has been available in Poland at least since 1998 when the Wizja TV platform launched. The dedicated Polish schedule was launched in 2002.[1]

The channel started using the new Discovery Channel logo on 1 July 2009.[2][3]

With a share of overall viewing of 0.67 percent, Discovery Channel was the 17th most watched television channel in Poland in 2011, according to Nielsen statistics.[4] It is by far the most popular of the dedicated documentary channels available in Poland.

The HD version of Discovery Channel Poland was launched on 17 January 2013 and replaced Discovery HD Showcase on all major TV platforms in Poland.
