Guys, what would be the way to watch discovery channel online?

Sky tv doesn't worth paying $50 a month for a single channel. On the official site and on hulu+ there are only short clips available.

So what are the options to watch the the live broadcast (ideal) or at least full shows (last resort)?

Unblock us (and I'm picking many other VPN, DNS proxies) allow access to it. I'm not sure if they have full episodes, or just clips.

I just had a quick look. Seems to be mostly clips.

You can get a fair bunch of the content on Netflix. Most likely not the latest seasons. You can buy current episodes on itunes (and most likely Vudu, Amazon etc).

Thanks,

Yep, that's the same as I could find out yesterday.

Asked about broadcast specifically because I don't have any preferred show to watch just want to turn it on on the evening and watch something random to relax ))

Sky's Discovery Channel image quality is so bad it isn't worth paying a single cent for.

Most Discovery shows are available via Youtube.

And after watching if last nite for an hour where I was staying on the Spanish train accident  with 6.5 minutes of program and 4 minutes of ads and a terrible picture  plus most of it's AU programming is reality TV now it's the last channel I'd want to pay for..  At least in the US they have it in HD and a Discovery Science channel as well...
