Discovery Channel's magazine hits newsstands in India

Discovery is expanding its portfolio in India beyond television with the launch of Discovery Channel magazine in association with the India Today Group, who will be the publishers of the magazine in India.

The monthly magazine is available for sale on newsstands and leading book stores around the country at a cover price of Rs 150. The magazine will also be available via annual subscription. It is published in English language. The magazine has appointed Jamal Shaikh as Editor. The editorial board for the magazine in India from Discovery includes Rahul Johri and Rajiv Bakshi.

Discovery Channel Magazine will deliver an original mix of content, spanning science, adventure, culture and oddities from around the globe. It will include a wide range of topics including nature, adventure, marvels, sci-tech, history, the universe, forensics, survival, psychology and environment.  From truly in-depth feature treatments, to research and fun facts; the magazine will showcase world-class photography and info-graphics, brought together in a visually splendid mix that blends insight and humour.

The inaugural issue of the magazine celebrates India with a cover feature on the Taj Mahal. It also offers exclusive access to the next generation skylines, the new world of immersive gaming and emergence of megafoods that resist certain diseases longer than the regular foods.
