A New Streaming Service

Discovery Plus, a new streaming service was just launched in the US earlier this year.

Discovery Plus has a wide range of channels on it including TLC, History, Travel, Food Network, HGTV, and Lifetime. It is priced at $5 a month with ads and $7 a month without them. I tried it out, and these are my thoughts.

First, if you like true crime then you would love Discovery Plus. It has many documentaries and shows about crime. I personally enjoyed watching The Family I Had, Madeline McCann: An ID Murder Mystery, and Jeffry Dahmer: Mind of a Monster, just to name a few. It also has some Discovery Plus exclusive true crime shows like Onision: In Real Life.

If you like home improvement shows then you will also enjoy Discovery Plus. Discovery Plus has countless home improvement and interior design shows ranging from Fixer Upper: Welcome Home to Flip or Flop. The streaming service includes exclusive home improvement shows too like House Hunters: Comedians on Couches. Unfiltered.

If you are a 90 Day series fan then you may also benefit from getting Discovery Plus. Discovery plus offers exclusive 90 Day shows like 90 Day Diaries and 90 Day Journey.

Searching for a show to watch is very organized on Discovery Plus. Shows are separated by genre and channel to make it easy to find what you want to watch.

Now onto the things that I didn’t like about Discovery Plus. The captions on discovery plus didn’t always match what was being said in the show, and sometimes they didn’t even turn on, but after closing and reopening the app the captions would turn on. Another thing I didn’t like about Discovery Plus was that it seems less developed than Netflix and Disney Plus which seems predictable because it’s pretty new. I also noticed that it seems as if there is no way to download shows and movies to watch offline like there is on Netflix and Disney Plus.

Overall, Discovery Plus had a wide variety of shows and documentaries to watch and is a good streaming service despite being new to US users.
