Please be sure to review the below sections in order to know which attachments above pertain to your production.


Asia & India

Credits must be approved in advance by the network EP before inserting into the program and should adhere to the following guidelines:


      • Discovery Channel requires end credits to be embedded over the final :30 of the program
      • The final :30 seconds of program time for embedded credits must be actual program content and be a part of the core content, story and/or wrap-up for the program.  Content time includes: disclaimers, program tease/open, graphic titles, acts 1-6, bumps in/out, embedded credits and any other elements (promotional, ad sales, etc) attached to the program.
      • Embedded credits are limited to the lower-third and left hand side of the video screen within title safe, and may not breach the upper half or right side of the video screen.
      • All end logos, network, co-pro partner or sponsors must be included in the :30 embedded credits and must be sized to fit within the same space
      • Embedded credits must be “pages”.  We no longer accept rolling credits.


      • Please discuss with the network EP.  However, generally we accept Helvetica font, point size 18, upper and lower case.
      • Person’s name – Helvetica 95 black font, pt size 18, all caps (use bold function)
