The media group, who already operates Quest on Freeview channel 38 via the SDN multiplex, has now taken a slot from multiplex operator Arqiva, on multiplex COM5.
The slot is being used to broadcast a timeshift edition of Quest. Quest+1 is available on Freeview channel 57, leapfrogging other channels on the platform due to it being associated with the existing Quest service on channel 38, in accordance with the Freeview channel numbering policy administered by Digital UK.
Discovery's long term plans for the new slot are still unknown. Quest launched after an initial delay in 2009 on the platform.
