CANNES -- Discovery Enterprises and Demand Media have signed a three-year DVD output deal for the U.K. and Ireland that will see the roll out of such titles as "Deadliest Catch," "Born Survivor: Bear Grylls," " Whale Wars," and "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking," later this year.

The deal covers both DVD and Blu-Ray releases of new Discovery fare from Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Quest and Shed.

"The deal is a fantastic opportunity for us to continue the rolling release plan that we have developed over the last couple of years as well as coming up with some really fresh ideas on how to push Discovery brands further within home video," said director James Akerman.
