Not A Myth To Bust: Discovery Channel Hits The App Store

Scientist wannabes, rejoice!

Discovery Communications has released a Discovery Channel application on the iTunes App Store (link to the program), bringing heaps of video content produced by the popular non-fiction media company to the iPhone and iPod Touch. In addition to video clips, the app also boasts a collection of quizzes, photo galleries, programming schedules and updates from Discovery News. Furthermore, you can use the app to share content via e-mail and save to favorites for your re-watching pleasure.

Evidently, full episodes for Discovery’s top programming (Shark Week, Man vs. Wild, MythBusters, etc.) are not available through the free yet ad-supported application, but it does come with links to the iTunes Store where the media company offers a selection of full episodes for purchase.

The Discovery Channel app was built by Rhythm NewMedia, which has already built apps for many media companies, including AMC, E! Online, Entertainment Tonight, Family Guy, HGTV, TMZ and more.
