Discovery Kids was a British pay television channel. The channel initially began broadcasting exclusively on the On Digital service time sharing with Discovery Wings, an aviation-focused channel similarly created initially as an On Digital exclusive. The channel eventually became available on other digital platforms such as Sky Digital, and Virgin Media.

Discovery Kids and Discovery Wings were both closed down on 28 February 2007 and were replaced by Discovery Turbo the following day. Discovery Kids was replaced with an online broadband video service called Discovery Kids On Demand, not updated since the closure of the TV channel. Some of Discovery Kids' previous programmes were later shown on DMAX during the mornings.
