Discovery Real Time was a French television channel broadcasting lifestyle programmes about decorating, fashion, cooking and similar topics. It primarily targeted women.

The channel was launched in October 2005 and was the second Discovery network to launch in France. On 3 March 2009 the channel adopted a new logo and a new look designed to be "fresh and stimulating".[1][2]

After the channel was dropped by leading satellite distributor Canalsat, Discovery decided to close it down. Transmissions ended on 26 January 2010 and was replaced by Discovery HD Showcase.[3]
