Animal lovers rejoice! VMedia is excited to bring you another free preview this month – TV subscribers can now watch Animal Planet (Channel #251) for free from now until January 1st, 2019.
Animal Planet is centralized home for the range of life in the animal kingdom. From baby animals to renowned TV personalities, here is a look at some of the exciting series that Animal Planet has to offer:
Crikey! It’s the Irwins
New Episodes Thursdays 9 PM
The Irwins are bringing khaki back! Bindi, Terri and Robert return to TV as a family, for the first time a decade after Steve Irwin’s death to continue the Crocodile Hunter’s conservation efforts and legacy. In this series, cameras capture the trio and Bindi’s boyfriend, Chandler Powell, as they live and work at the Australian Zoo, caring for more than 1200 animals while overseeing their wildlife hospital. Viewers get an insight into what it’s like to live on the actual premises of the Australia Zoo, which Bindi describes as a “non-stop adventure”.
Vet Gone Wild
Premieres December 11, 9 PM
Known to many TV viewers as the “Bondi Vet”, Dr. Chris Brown is back for more adventures as he tries to improve the lives of animals that otherwise have no one. This time he travels to some of the most remote and exotic places on the planet — from operating on endangered rhinos in Africa, saving sick wombats in Tasmania, freeing fur seals trapped in fishing line on Australia’s Philip Island, rescuing dogs from the meat trade in Southeast Asia and helping orphaned sloths in Costa Rica, there is no animal too big or too small that Dr. Chris won’t help.
Baby Animals in the Wild
Premieres December 22, 8 PM
Amp up the cute factor – this series showcases baby animals and their naturally wild behaviours in their natural habitats. Each episode begins with the morning sunrise and follows the adorable animals over a 24-hour period. We witness milestones and day to day activities such as feeding, nurturing, grooming, playing, napping and exploring their natural habitat with mum or dad. With humourous commentary throughout – ‘oops moments’, light drama and lurking predators – animal fans get a bit of everything.
Treehouse Masters S7
Premieres December 3, 10 PM
Returning for its 7th season, Treehouse Masters has viewers climbing to a majestic world up in the treetops with tree whisperer Pete Nelson, as he designs private escapes for those with a passion to reconnect with nature and awaken their inner child. Designing multi-bedroom, dream tree houses complete with functional plumbing and electricity, to simple, one-room lofts, Pete goes out on a limb to create breath-taking realities. Pete and his team of designers and carpenters, including son Charlie, must endure Mother Nature’s shifty antics, dangerous construction equipment and dizzy heights in order to build these sanctuaries.
