Discovery Plus

Discovery Plus debuted last January with a mix of shows, movies and exclusive originals. Cable programmer Discovery launched the service with two tiers -- $5 a month with commercials, or $7 a month ad-free -- after a seven-day free trial. The service is also free with certain Verizon Unlimited and home broadband plans.

Discovery Plus' library includes more than 55,000 episodes from Discovery's own channels. But before you invest in yet another streaming service, you might be wondering: What channels do you get with Discovery Plus?  

Knowing what content to expect can better inform your decision-making process before subscribing to a service. Here's a full list of channels you'll be able to view content from on Discovery Plus.

Which devices stream Discovery Plus?

You can stream Discovery Plus on your Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or web browser. You can find all compatible devices here

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

No. You can find many of these shows and channels with a Hulu Live TV subscription. Hulu Live TV is more expensive than Discovery Plus, at $65 a month, where either one of Discovery Plus' tiers don't exceed $10 a month. But you do get far more content. 

Discovery Plus is a niche subscription service in the vein of Disney Plus. So, if the list of channels above strikes your fancy, give the seven-day free trial a shot.
