What is Discovery Plus?

Discovery Plus is one of the newest streaming service entrants launched in January 2021 with a mix of episodes, movies, and exclusive original content. After a seven-day free trial, Discovery+ launched its service with two tiers: $5 per month with ads and $7 per month without ads. Verizon Unlimited and residential broadband plans also include the Discovery+ service for free.

Discovery+ gives you access to over 55,000 episodes from over 2,500 current and classic shows across the Discovery network portfolio.

The networks are TLC, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, OWN, ID, Animal Planet, Magnolia Network, and Discovery channel.

Discovery has also established arrangements with outside partners such as A&E, History, and Lifetime to deliver non-fiction content to the streaming platform. A few reality series from NBCUniversal have also been added.

The first component of Discovery+ is “Library Content,” but the second is “Original Programming.”

90 Day Universe, Ghost Hunters, The Single Life, Naked and Afraid Of love, King of the Con, and Selling the Hamptons are among the most popular Discovery+ Originals in early 2022.

The Magnolia Network, which Chip and Joanna Gaines recently created, is widely featured.

Discovery+ Price plan

Discovery+ is currently one of the most cost-effective streaming TV solutions accessible. The ad-supported plan costs $4.99 per month, while the ad-free option costs $6.99.

The ad-supported plan is available at a discounted rate of $2.99 per month for students.

Although there is no free tier, some Verizon customers with unlimited data plans can access the Discovery+ ad-free plan for six months.

A 7-day trial of Discovery+ is available. You can cancel at any time because there are no contracts or long-term commitments.

How to stream Discovery+

You can watch Discovery+ on any internet-connected device, whether you’re at home or on the move.

Discovery+ is available on various devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, game consoles, and smart televisions. Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Roku are the supported TV devices.

Discovery+ supports up to five user profiles and four simultaneous streams per account.

Discovery+ provides a positive user experience in my tests. I’ve tried Discovery+ on my phone, computer, and a Roku Express 4K+ device to stream it to a TV.

The first thing I noticed was how swiftly I could navigate Discovery+ without experiencing any latency or buffering.

When you first open the Discovery+ app, you’ll find a “For You” section with highly personalized recommendations based on your viewing history.

Food, Relationships, Home, True Crimes, and other genres are organized by navigation.

You can search by Discovery brand if that’s what you’re looking for; when you click on a brand logo, you’ll be sent to a list of the most extraordinary material available on that network, including trending content.

When you click on a show, you have the option of watching it right away or saving it to “My List” for later viewing.

The service has also developed dedicated “channels” that stream indefinite amounts of popular content such as Ghost Adventures, 90 Day Fiancé, House Hunters, and Fixer Upper.

You cannot yet download Discovery+ content for offline viewing, but the firm strives to make this possible.

Which devices stream Discovery Plus?

You can access Discovery Plus via Android TV, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, Samsung Smart TV, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, Android phone, or web browser.

Is Discovery Plus the only place I can watch channels and shows?

No, with a Hulu Live TV subscription, you can access many of these shows and channels. Hulu Live TV is more expensive than Discovery Plus, costing $65 per month, whereas neither Discovery Plus tier costs more than $10 per month. But you do get a lot more content.

Can I get Discovery+ for free?

If you have a Verizon account, you may be able to get Discovery+ for free for up to a year. However, you can find more information on the website.

Otherwise, Discovery+ isn’t free, but you can pick the best plan for you. They start at $4.99 per month, with an ad-free version costing $6.99 per month. Given all of the delicious recipes, home design ideas, and guilty pleasure reality TV shows they provide, it could be well worth it.

When was Discovery+ released?

Discovery+ was released on January 4, 2021. That means that once you’ve finished all of your holiday shopping and cooking, you can unwind with hours of entertainment.
