Discovery Channel has partnered with Virginia-based VideoBlocks to bring Discovery Communications’ royalty-free Discovery Access video library to the stock footage provider’s digital marketplace.
Under the agreement, more than 30,000 professionally-shot stock footage clips from the Discovery Communications-owned net would be made available for purchase in early 2016 on VideoBlocks’ recently launched Marketplace.
Subscribers can use the content royalty-free for commercial or personal use, without distribution restrictions.
Members pay US$99 per year for access to an “unlimited library” of approximately 115,000 clips, as well as additional items available for purchase, including a variety of backgrounds and after effects. Marketplace videos are available at a fixed price, with HD video valued at $49 and Ultra HD/4K clips costing $199.
“Discovery Channel has captured the breathtaking beauty of our planet in ways that no others have, and including this content in our Marketplace is game-changing for video editors,” said Joel Holland, founder and CEO of VideoBlocks, in a statement. “This addition furthers our mission to provide premium creative content that everyone can afford.”
