SBS Discovery Media is a European media group, owned by Discovery Communications. It was formed on April 9, 2013 when Discovery's acquisition of SBS Nordic from German media group ProSiebenSat.1 was finalised.[1] It combines the assets of SBS Nordic with Discovery's activities in the Nordic region.

At the time of the merger, SBS had been a major commercial broadcaster in Scandinavia for two decades. The combined viewing shares made it the second largest commercial television group in Norway and the third largest in Denmark
