Lightcap oversaw a third consecutive year of record ratings in 2015, with the first half of 2016 building momentum with the Q2 delivering a 4 percent gain over the first quarter. Discovery Channel, Discovery Kids, and Discovery Home & Health all ranked among the top 10 pay TV channels in the primetime pan-regional level, for A25-54.
