Discovery World offers a mix of history, culture, real-life stories, investigation, mystery shows, factual series and documentaries. Its programming is mainly in English and locally subtitled or dubbed. In some countries the advertisement and the announcements between programs are localized.
In Europe the channel started as Discovery Civilisation, also called Discovery Civilisation Channel, in the UK in 1998 and later followed by other European countries.
