Under the deal announced on Tuesday, programs hosted by Gordon Ramsay that aired on foreign broadcasters in the United Kingdom and elsewhere are included in the deal, with Discovery Plus landing the exclusive North American streaming rights to that content.
Shows covered by the deal include several full seasons of the British version of “Kitchen Nightmares” as well as “Gordon Ramsay’s Great Escape.” Several Gordon Ramsay specials produced for British television are also among the shows carrying over to Discovery Plus.
Overall, the deal encompasses more than 250 hours of streaming content, which helps Discovery Plus beef up its television offerings.
Launched in early January, Discovery Plus offers thousands of hours of documentaries and reality-based television programs from Discovery Network’s portfolio of cable channels, including the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Science Channel, Oprah Winfrey Network, HGTV and TLC. It also offers third party content from A+E Networks (A&E, Lifetime, History Channel) and BBC Worldwide.
Discovery Plus is available across most popular smart television platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV, and starts at $5 a month with advertisements.
