Discovery Channel Romania was a television channel in Romania.

The dedicated channel for Romania was launched in 2006.[3][4] At the same time Discovery Networks Europe opened a local office in Bucharest.[5] Prior to this, Romania had received a Pan-Regional feed of the Discovery Channel.

The channel adopted the new Discovery logo on July 1, 2009 along with its sister channels in Central Europe.[6]

Discovery Networks also broadcasts to Romania the Pan-Regional channels Animal Planet, Discovery Science, Investigation Discovery and Discovery HD.[citation needed] It was closed in Winter 2018.
