Silver Spring, Md. – Whether exhibiting human-like behavior or living an existence so foreign it is fascinating, the animal kingdom has the power to mesmerize. Today, Discovery Communications announces the debut of Animal Planet L!VE, featuring unfiltered, round-the-clock access to the compelling worlds of the beautiful, cute and misunderstood. The 24/7 digital experience builds on Discovery Communications’ long-standing success with live animal cams, including Penguin Cam and Shark Cam, and acts as a digital complement to Animal Planet and its on-air programming.
“Animal Planet L!VE marries the most popular Internet video category, animals, with the most powerful animal-related media brand in Animal Planet. This exciting new digital video experience advances Discovery Communications' mission of being the #1 nonfiction media company across allscreens,” said JB Perrette, Chief Digital Officer, Discovery Communications. “’Live’ is a key way that we connect with our audiences – on air and online, and Animal Planet L!VE will feed audiences' passion for the animal world on their computers, tablets, smartphones and connected TVs. We’re delighted to bring this unprecedented breed of 'ambient entertainment’ to our viewers and superfans.”
Available today at APL.TV and on select Samsung Smart TVs tomorrow, Animal Planet L!VE launches in partnership with Audubon Nature Institute, explore.org, National Aquarium, South MountainCreamery and the Washington Animal RescueLeague – with more cameras planned in the coming months. Starting today visitors can immerse themselves through 11, live HD cameras – powered by USTREAM:
“Our success with Animal Planet on TV has been due in large part to listening closely to our audience. Their overwhelming response to PUPPY BOWL and our Puppy and Kitten Cams led us straight to Animal Planet L!VE,” added Marjorie Kaplan, President and General Manager, Animal Planet. “Animal Planet L!VE is an exciting evolution and expansion of the Animal Planet brand. Whether you want the Pacific Reef Cam on during your house party or you'd rather wake up with the Wild Bird Cam chirping in the background, with this digital destination we’re bringing the cute, the cuddly, the mesmerizing and even the creepy to our fans 24/7 as only AnimalPlanet can."
Animal Planet L!VE currently is available across desktop and mobile platforms at APL.TV and on Samsung Smart TVs this Thursday, and will be coming to Roku and Xbox LIVE in the coming months.

We have had some feedback about an ingredient in our ice cream, Carrageenan. Carageenan is a natural carbohydrate extracted from red seaweed. It is referred to as a seaweed gelatin much like agar agar. The name Carraigin means 'moss of the rock' in Irish. It grows abundantly along the rocky coasts of North America and Europe. In Ireland during the 1800's carrageenan was extracted from Irish Moss and used as a gelatin and thickener, as well as a home remedy. A tea made from Irish moss is used as a tonic, being widely used in Irish folk medicine as a trusted cure for coughs and colds. To read more about this subject please click HERE.
ICE CREAM DELIVERY!!!!
Before you order ice cream, please visit our "FAQ" page, as there are additional steps to have it delivered!
DEACTIVATING VERSUS “ON HOLD”
In an effort to be more cost efficient with our website, we are in the process of deactivating accounts which have not ordered for at least 3 months. We know many of you attend Farmer’s Markets over the summer and you do not receive regular delivery during that time. In this case - we can deactivate your account and note it as “on hold” which will enable you to reactivate and avoid the fee. Other exceptions may also apply. To avoid deactivation in general, please place an order at least once every 3 months…or set up a monthly recurring order. There is no minimum purchase needed, just a delivery! Honey butter anyone?
NON-SMC GLASS BOTTLES??
Over the past few months, you have probably noticed the names and logos of several different creamery's on our milk bottles...names like Heartland Creamery,Shenville Creamery and Rocky Creek. These are actually bottles that we have been able to purchase from these creamery's for less cost than buying new! Some of them are still up and running, like Heartland. You can check them out at www.heartlandcreamery.com Simple internet searches can pull up info and articles about the others. We hope you enjoy reading the history of where our new - reused bottles originated from!
