Discovery Channel has just launched its official Windows 8 Metro app, thus allowing adopters of Microsoft's new operating system to watch full episodes without closing the Modern UI.“Watch thousands of clips and selected full episodes from Discovery Channel shows like Deadliest Catch, Gold Rush, MythBusters, and more! Download the all-new Discovery Channel app and take Discovery everywhere you go!” the app description notes.
In addition to full episodes, the app also comes with a schedule option to find out when your favorite show is on, and thus make sure you won't lose a specific documentary.
Of course, Discovery Channel can be installed not only on the desktop version of Windows 8, but also on the tablet-oriented Windows RT that's already powering lots of devices, including Microsoft's own Surface RT.
