Discovery Kids was a British educational children's channel. The channel initially began broadcasting exclusively on the On Digital service time sharing with Discovery Wings; the channel eventually became available on other digital platforms such as Sky Digital, and Virgin Media.

Discovery Kids and Discovery Wings both closed down on 28 February 2007 and were replaced by Discovery Turbo. Discovery Kids was replaced with an online broadband video service called Discovery Kids On Demand, not updated since the closure of the TV channel. Some of Discovery Kids' previous programmes were later shown on DMAX during the mornings.
