TORONTO (February 10, 2015) – As announced last month, Discovery World is shifting gears this Thursday, Feb. 12 to become Discovery Velocity – Canada’s only home for Turbo Factual Programming. To celebrate, Discovery Velocity is inviting Canadians to test drive the finely-tuned programming with an adrenaline-charged, seven-week national free preview from Feb. 12 – March 31. Viewers can contact their local service providers for details on channel information in their area.

Discovery Velocity hits the air with powerful automotive, travel, survival, and cultural world content through high-quality and immersive series and specials. New content includes hundreds of hours of live broadcasts of the world’s leading BARRETT-JACKSON collector car auctions, premieres of all-new seasons of WHEELER DEALERS, WHAT’S IN THE BARN?, CHASING CLASSIC CARS, and AMERICARNA, as well as such “classics” as PATRICK DEMPSEY: RACING LE MANS, and INSIDE WEST COAST CUSTOMS.

Getting up-close-and-personal with the latest wheels, the automotive experience continues at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto. Beginning this Friday, Feb. 13 and throughout the following 10 days, Discovery Velocity invites onlookers and enthusiasts to visit the Discovery Velocity booth and engage in the network’s drive for all things automotive.
