Coming up on Quest, Salvage Hunters: The Restorers and Fifth Gear are back with new episodes whilst on Quest Red, Katie Price: My Crazy Life season 2 continues, with brand-new series Paranormal Lockdown UK and Saving Britain’s Wildlife entering the schedule, alongside new episodes of My 600LB Life. These will all be available on-demand.

“Quest continues to go from strength-to-strength with a record-breaking Q1 this year, and Quest Red is the fastest growing free-to-air entertainment channel since its launch last year,” said James Gibbons EVP and GM of UK / Ireland, Australia & New Zealand and head of commercial development for EMEA, Discovery.

He added, “There is a huge appetite for the Quest channels’ content, and we’re delighted to be investing in an on-demand service that makes this content available to fans across all platforms. This new player gives fans the freedom to access their favourite content across multiple devices, and what better occasion to go live than with the launch of the EFL highlights.”
