Discovery Communications has chosen TF1 Publicité, France’s no.1 multimedia space sales provider, to sell and promote advertising space on its theme channels and digital platforms in France. Discovery Communications is a major media group in the theme channel universe, so this will be an opportunity for TF1 Publicité clients to associate their brands with premium environments through engaging and targeted programmes. Building on iconic sport and nonfiction brands such as Eurosport and Discovery, the new commercial partnership will enable TF1 Publicité to enrich its offer on High SPC and male targets. It will also enhance TF1 Publicité’s entertainment offer for female targets via the two new channels launched recently by the Discovery Communications group in France: Discovery Investigation and Discovery Family. The agreement, effective 1 January 2018, will cover the Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 channels, the eurosport.fr website, the Discovery Channel, Discovery Science, Discovery Investigation and Discovery Family channels and their digital versions. Discovery, the home of intelligent entertainment Discovery Channel lifts the lid on the incredible challenges that pit humans against nature, against machines or just against themselves, living through out-of-the-ordinary experiences that stimulate your imagination and take you into an extraordinary, action-packed world. While others just deal with theories, Discovery Science pushes the boundaries of our curiosity about the world: robots, explosions, and real-life experiences – making science more accessible, more fun and more relevant. Nail-biting suspense, passionate and tortured relationships, complex investigations: Discovery Investigation opens a window onto true stories that take us into the darkest corners of human nature. Real-life crimes, narrated like a police procedural drama. Discovery Family offers insight into the daily lives of real people with stories to tell, with a strong dose of emotion and humour. Strands are as varied as animal coaching or family businesses, from pastry chefs to beach house builders, as well as the daily lives of extraordinary families. Discovery Family is not just a channel for families, it’s a channel about families. Eurosport, the go-to channel for sports fans Europe’s no.1 destination for sports fans, Eurosport attracts and engages viewers across all platforms with high-profile events like the Coupe de France football tournament, tennis majors (French, US and Australian Opens), the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, MotoGP, the Le Mans 24-hour race, and the Alpine Ski and Biathlon World Cups.. ____________________ Sylvia Tassan Toffola, Deputy Chief Executive Officer TF1 Publicité: "We are very pleased with the partnership deal we have concluded with Discovery Communications to sell its advertising space in France.
