Discovery+ | Stream TV Shows Positive Reviews
Not user friendly….There’s nothing in the app or the streaming service that indicates newest episodes of your favorite shows. I’m a big fan of 90-Day Fiancé which has had many spin-off shows related to the 90-Day Fiancé originals. The only problem (which is very time consuming) is that the newest episodes of any of the 90-Day shows & spin-offs (which are advertised as containing all the newest episodes) are not showing the dates of any episodes - which makes it very hard to find the newest episodes of the series that maybe you missed. I usually give up because it is an exercise in frustration and one literally has to hunt for the most recent episodes. I can only imagine that this is the norm for all the networks. Can’t you come up with a more user friendly interface that makes it easier to find by listing original dates of the episodes that one is searching for? I’m extremely disappointed and frustrated by this and I’m probably going to have to cancel my subscription of $4.99 monthly for a streaming service I can’t navigate..Version: 1.12.0
Needs Some Kinks Worked OutOverall, this app is amazing but it still has to work out some kinks. The price is great, especially to have the ad-free version. I was hoping it was the answer to cancelling another streaming service I subscribe to but this app doesn’t have the original 90 Day Fiancé show, just a streaming channel. Also, random episodes are missing on some shows, so I again have to revert to my other streaming service to watch there. The app freezes briefly on Roku TV after pausing or rewinding, and will skip over the part it freezes on. I’ve had no issues casting from my iPhone to my Vizio TV. I can still use my phone while it’s casting and there is no freezing or glitching. The functionality of the home screen needs some improvement organizationally and to provide the ability to delete episodes in “Continue Watching”. When it auto plays or I check out shows, I don’t necessarily want them to stay in “Continue Watching” because then I have to scroll through those to get to what I really want to continue watching. The catalog of shows is exceptional and I do love that some shows are unedited - very refreshing to be able to listen to people swear instead of hearing “beeep beeeep”. I would honestly pay more to have them remove the censorship bleeps from all shows (Gold Rush, I’m looking at you). I was sure I would cancel after the trial but I’ve stayed on as a subscriber because we now watch Discovery+ more than our other streaming services..Version: 1.3.0
Good catalog, playback features still lackingThere’s a lot of Discovery content, and a little History, to entertain for endless hours.
There are some playback features and functions you might miss from other streaming services. 1. There’s no way to connect to Chromecast or another device on your TV until AFTER you start an episode. This means you have to buffer, load, and play the video on your phone before you can tell it to connect to a external device on your TV. It’s very annoying. 2. The streaming on your TV/Chromcast and the controls on the phone lose sync so you sometimes have to stop, reconnect and start again to change playback. You also my need to know the exact show and episode playing to click back into it to get the controls back. 3. My biggest annoyance is the app will not stop streaming on a Chromecast unless you manually stop it. There’s no “are you there” option to check in and save your data usage and stop streaming after a few episodes if the TV is shut off while still streaming. If you set the sleep timer on your TV while a show is playing it will play all night and all day until you turn the TV back on the next night…and it’s still streaming. Has happened to me several times. I like the service, but the app it’s lacking some of the refined user experience features that users expect from a streaming service day one. This was either rushed out and not extensively tested, or it was never extensively tested. Neither is really acceptable..Version: 1.12.0
Small Changes Would Improve App Experience (iOS)UPDATE: New pro to add to the list: the Discovery+ staff appears to read and respond to nearly all of their app reviews. This shows an open willingness to improve, which is essential to any successful streaming platform. Bravo, discovery+! I was so excited to try Discovery+ at the $0.99/month for 3 months promotional price. While I was right about the original programming being very worth the standard monthly price, a handful of features are preventing me from actually using the app. (1) No PiP in iOS/iPadOS - many neurodivergent folks multitask, using mobile devices to watch & work simultaneously. The PiP feature is a big draw for frequent viewers. (2) Not intuitively accessible - there aren't many shows with Audio Description, which is essential for many more people than just the visually challenged viewer. Additional languages for subtitles, and other audio/visual accommodations would be on par with other video streaming apps. (3) [This is nitpicking] When browsing, the date of original airing or release can only be seen once you start playback of an episode or movie. Finding the most recent releases helps me know what I want to watch. Those little ( I hope) additions will have me as a loyal subscriber for the foreseeable future..Version: 1.22.2
I love it, but it also can be frustrating.I love this app. I'm so incredibly happy with the selection of shows and networks. But I have a huge problem streaming anything to my smart TV. This app has a horrible system for streaming. It's almost impossible to pause/play your show while also browsing the app. I've found that I have to go back into the show I'm watching, click the exact episode I'm watching, and then the app with allow me to pause the show. I just wish there was a better way to control streaming while also using the app. Other big streaming apps have an interface that's on screen all the time while streaming to allow you to control your show as you browse the app. It would be huge if you guys added one too. Another problem I'm experiencing is the app not playing the episode at all, or with the sound only. The app will connect to my TV but won't load the episode or picture. The last problem I've experienced is sometimes the app will replay 5 to 10 minutes of my show over and over again. The only way to escape this seemingly never ending loop is to skip ahead past the repeated scene.
Otherwise I love this app so much and I will continue to use it, especially if streaming becomes easier to use..Version: 1.3.0
App needs improvementI was initially irritated that people were being forced to get Discovery+ if they wanted to continue to watch certain shows. If I’m being honest, I’m still irritated. However, when looking at this from a financial perspective, in the long run this will save me money, as I will be canceling direct tv now that our contract is up. This may not be the case for others, so it is frustrating to know that this network is basically requiring you to pay more money for something that you are already paying for with cable. Yes I get it. It’s only $5, that’s not the point. Ok, that’s the end of my rant lol... I so far am enjoying g the content. However, the app could use some improvement. When you’re streaming a show to your television from the app and close the app it often times will shut the app down completely not allowing you to click back open to the app to rewind or fast-forward. And then have to go into your continue watching section where it restarts the episode in the wrong spot. It would also be nice to have the option to remove episodes from the continue watching section. Also I am unable to download this app on my chrome cast televisions. And PLEASE, when I have finished an episode, take it off of the continue watching section. That drives me bonkers!!.Version: 1.1.0
Great content- glitchy appI love all the different channels and content available- this app has become our go to over the last week. However there have been multiple issues while watching on Apple TV. The big one is if I decide to stop watching a show and try to back out of it, it takes a bit of time to go back to the menu and even then, the audio of the show continues to play, and I can’t scroll through the menu while that’s going on. I have to actually back the whole way out to the Apple TV Home Screen in order to get the audio to stop and wait a few min from there to get the Discovery app to “reset”. Next issue, not as major, is when an episode ends and is moving on to the next automatically, I get an error when it attempts to auto play. Once I click “try again”, it does move on though. The last thing I’ve noticed is on several occasions once an ad airs, when the episode comes back on, it’ll have reset the show back to a previous point. If it lets me fast forward (it gets hung up and almost laggy when this happens as in the previous situation of trying to back out of an episode), it’ll hit the same commercial break and just jump backwards in the episode again..Version: 1.0.1
Great service, app function not so muchLove all the channels and shows we can get. This is the streaming app we use more than any other. However… you need to learn how to build an app there are some pretty pathetic rookie kinks in this app that only belong in one built by a tiny amateur company. For starters I should not still see every single episode of every show we’ve watched in my continue watching list. Secondly and I think partly to blame for the first issue is the fact that each episode we watch seems to scroll back several minutes after we finish it. So if we continue to the next episode then back out before we finish it, the previous episode shows before the current one on the list causing us to continue an episode we’ve already watched when we try to pick up where we left off if we don’t pay really close attention. It’s incredibly frustrating! I really hope your developers get on the ball soon. In conclusion… progress tracking of episodes needs to be more accurate and delete completed episodes from the continue watching list. I should see 5 or 6 episodes there but instead there’s over 100. It’s been this way from the start I know I’m not the only one to complain and I don’t think this is too much to expect.Version: 1.15.0
Great app but connection issues and no active watch barThis app has brought all my favorite channels into one place along with exclusive content and I’m delighted. However, there is room for improvement. The picture is sometimes blurry when I’m casting to my Google Chromecast. Its usually spotty or clears up after about five minutes but there was one day where it stayed blurry and pixelated the entire day. Maybe the connection to the server can be stronger.
Also, I would like a “watch bar” at the bottom of the app for when I’m casting like Netflix has. If you go out of the show you are currently watching there is no bar at the bottom of the screen that shows what you’re currently watching. This is especially aggravating because the app auto plays to a different show if the one you’re watching finishes. So I’ve had to go searching in the app for the new show that’s playing, click into the episode, just to be able to stop it from playing. This is insane to have to do. What I’m actively watching (via chrome cast) should always be available in a bar right at the bottom of the screen.
The shows and variety are great but the app could use some better functionality. Please think more of people who use Chromecasts..Version: 1.1.0
Great App!!We love this app! We watch a lot of the Discovery family’s channels. When we had to drop our regular tv package we immediately picked up Discovery + for the price and listings.
The only issues that we’ve had so far is that during any program we watch, it will freeze for a few seconds anywhere from one to three times an episode. It wouldn’t be so bad if it picked up where it left off, but it doesn’t and instead picks up wherever it’s supposed to be (I hope I explained that right). Another is that sometimes we watch a few seconds/minutes of a show to see if we’ve seen that episode or not and in doing so it builds up in the “Resume Watching” queue. It would be nice if there were a deletion option so that you could find the episodes you actually do want to resume faster.
Honestly, if those two problems were addressed, this app would be close to perfect! We love that we still get to watch most of our favorite shows with significantly shorter commercial times and for a great value price!!.Version: 1.4.0
Help it’s not workingHey y’all I do t know what’s wrong but I updated my app earlier and since then it has not been working. My subscription is paid for and I am not sure of what may be wrong. I love this app and usually am quite satisfied with it. I don’t understand since it’s a paid for subscription and not just thru a tv provider why it doesn’t include all the old and new shows on each channel such as with lifetime -Cell Mate Secrets isn’t on there and with Hgtv, lots of the classics are missing such as All the Sarah Richardson shows like Design inc, Room Service,Sarah 101, Sarah’s House(and cottage etc),Sarah sees potential, and the new Sarah off the Grid, Divine Design,Candace Tells All, Shop this Room and more plus on some of the others random episodes are missing. But other than that and the fact my app is not working at this moment (and I uninstalled and reinstalled and still not working ) I love this app more than any other I have.Version: 1.12.0
Love it but there’s also some issuesWhile I love watching the discovery plus app I feel like there were some seasons of tv shows that were missing such as the crocodile Hunter and monster quest missing a couple of its seasons like season 3 and for monster quest and seasons 1 2 3 and 4 for The Crocodile Hunter as well as some things like Jurassic Fight Club not being on the history section and it was on the history channel 14 years ago. But all in it was fine but there have been continuous times where it would stop and act like it doesn’t have WiFi on the tv but also because recently the shows I have on list in there went missing and now can’t find any of my favorite shows on there even quite a lot of discover-plus original shows have went missing I hope you guys fix these issues as well as stopping the crashes on tv from happening and I also hope you add in the missing seasons from some shows and in shows that were on the listed channels that hadn’t been seen in years as well as the original episodes of The Crocodile Hunter too.Version: 15.1.0
Great service, but…For the most part, I’m really happy with Discovery +. It has TONS of content. But it doesn’t offer a lot in the way of setting options. I would love to see the following added to this app: 1) the ability to turn off auto start of a new show when I complete a show. Usually the new show (that the app chooses for me) is not anything I’m interested in, and it now stays in my “Continued Watching” list 2) the ability to remove items from Continued Watching. Mine is full of shows I’ll never watch due to the auto start feature and shows I’ve already watched that are just hanging there. If features like this are added, this would be a really great app!
Update: response from Discovery+ is that I can fast-forward through an episode to remove it from Continued Watching. This is not a solution. Fast forwarding only makes the next episode show up, so you have to fast forward through every episode in the season. Then another show auto-starts and shows up anyway. No one wants to spend time doing this Discovery+!.Version: 1.22.3
Some suggestionsI’m happy with the content of the shows on this app and it was very easy to set up on my tv, iPad, etc, but when I go to a category and select a show to be on my List, or just to look at the description, there’s no way to get back to where I was in the listings. I’m immediately sent back to the beginning of the Home page and I have to start searching categories from scratch. Also, I’ve messed around watching some shows and now these shows are stuck in the Continue list. There’s some shows I looked at and have no intention of watching to the end and I can’t get rid of them. I even fast forwarded one to the end and the next episode immediately came up! Now I have that one and the previous ep (because it shows two seconds left)also stuck in Continue! I’m sure you’re working on these things, and I look forward to getting bug fixes and improvements in the future, but it’s so annoying to have these shows clogging up the space. Netflix has an option that says “remove this title from this row”. It’s a very good option. Just a thought..Version: 1.0.1
Best app, no connection issuesThis is the best App I have now. All the shows I like and new ones I’m enjoying. Especially Mike Rowe Six Degrees. I’ve read where some people are having connection issues. I’ve had the app since day one on my phone and Apple TV with zero connection issues what so ever. All 5 of my kids have been chain watching shows and all say the same thing no issues at all. Maybe delete the app and add it back. Or now with all the amount of data being used look into your internet connection. I had 300 MPs download but had so many things connected slowed it down and froze a lot. I switched to 1 gig download and all my problems stopped. I can watch 4K movies in multiple rooms all streaming with no issues anymore. It could also be your phones data plan too with certain low data things active you will get break ups. And I’m using a iPhone 11 Pro when I watch..Version: 1.0.1
Been a Discovery Network fanI’ve been a long time Discovery Network fan. I’m able to pretty much watch anything they televise. Since the pandemic started, I’ve been into a lot of true crime documentaries and shows; I usually set recordings for specific shows that I’m into, I’m not a fan of re-enactments, so I love the fact that I can sort through the shows and tap the plus sign and boom! It’s in my playlist, and the suggestions so far have been on point. The app itself, works better than the previous streaming apps I downloaded, it’s easy to navigate, it’s a monthly subscription price, however, at least you get what you pay for anddddd some; with Discovery Plus. The “ad-free” option is...guess what?!...actually AD FREE! No hidden lies with your hard earned money, especially during the pandemic. For a streaming app, I’m impressed financially and engineerly (😂) That’s all folks! Enjoy!.Version: 1.4.0
Good app, not great yetUPDATE: It’s been quite a while, and there’s still no indication that it’ll ever get PiP. Picture in Picture is a huge factor for me in which streaming apps to use, so I’ll probably end up cancelling this subscription app when I do my streamlining later this month. Great content, but horrible customer service in that the developers appear to be responsive—responding to people’s comments—but then make no actually changes to a major flaw in the functionality. I’m hardly the only person who’s asked for PiP—I see half a dozen reviews right away—and pretty much all the other streaming platforms have it from the beginning. Disappointing.
This app has a lot of great potential—lots of shows to watch. But, the browsing isn’t intuitive, and it hits my number one pet peeve for streaming apps: it doesn’t allow for Picture in Picture. Which means that you can’t multi-task while playing the app. Here’s hoping that they’ll include this functionality, but I’m not holding my breath..Version: 14.28.0
Nice app — one very annoying issue (AppleTV)App seems to be nice and stable on iOS/iPadOS and TVOS 15. Good catalog selection, and an ad-free version FTW, also excellent video/audio quality. My only gripe is that when selecting a program season (and episode) in the TVOS interface, even a momentary pause while scrolling through seasons bounces the selection back up to “Watch Now”. I can’t imagine how anyone would consider this good interface behavior. A touch/gesture-based app should never change the active interface element unless the user performs a deliberate click or gesture. I’m going to allow that perhaps the app UI was designed prior to the current AppleTV (with the newer remote) and may have different behavior with the older touch-pad remote. This is why I am awarding four stars instead of two — yes, it’s that bad. Please review the behavior against the current platform. The issue makes an otherwise stellar AppleTV streamer quite annoying to use..Version: 1.20.1
Not sure yetI 1,000,000,000% love love love the ID channel and my TV never leaves it!! (Except for Oxygen)…it’s LITERALLY just ALWAYS on in the background…sometimes I’m watching it, sometimes I’m just listening to it while doing all my many single-Mom tasks (which I LOVE TO DO; don’t get it twisted 💯💯💯👩👧👩👧👩👧🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏), and sometimes it’s just on in the background or while I’m sleeping (doesn’t give me nightmares; although I’ve met people that swear it does them 🤷♀️). I find it empowering and comforting that people have been through such horrible circumstances and have survived and are thriving…mostly. It gives me courage, as I have been through some very horrific things in my life as well. 💯🙏
P.S. Lieutenant Joe Kenda for President of the United States…think about it…I’m just saying 😉💯💯💯❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
BUT HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS WHOLE STREAMING THING THAT I FINALLY PURCHASED LAST NIGHT 🤷♀️💯🙁 It’s giving me so many errors & I can’t get a REAL customer service person to help me & it’s getting very frustrating & am about to cancel the service..Version: 1.22.2
This is my happy place!! ❤️The world is so chaotic these days with all that has gone on with the pandemic so we need things that bring us joy and a sense of peace. I absolutely get that with this channel~ I can come home and watch shows that are so uplifting and yes they make me cry Happy tears but I’m ok with it, I love that! I’m a fan of the shows that do the good!! I feel so blessed to have Discovery+, I may have a bit of a friend crush for Chip & Jo and love some Hometown and have found my new soulmates Nate & Jeremiah!! It’s a good feeling knowing that I am spending my time watching shows that make a difference no matter how they do it, with food or decor, ripping out walls or jumping thru them. I know the outcome brings such happiness and that makes me a happy girl! Thank you for this channel!! I would love to be a part of it if you are hiring!! ;) Ok yes I said that but that’s how much I love it!!! ❤️🙋🏻♀️.Version: 1.9.0
The app does not crash no problems streams this fine but some shows are missing.The only issue I have with this app is it doesn’t show all of the history shows like for instance they just started a new season of mystery of Skinwalker Ranch, I’m kind of bummed out about it is because it’s not even showing any of the new episodes,Same with Fortune fire I’m actually really disappointed that you have everything but any of the new history shows when are you guys going to start updating that?
Oh yeah I forgot to add that you guys don’t have curse of Oak Island the unexplained or any of your new episodes of ancient aliens, it’s not crashing I have no problems accessing the app but on your history channel area on the app it doesn’t have all of their shows that my only issue it would be nice if you guys would add some of the shows that I’m talking about it would be nice if you guys would do that, it’s not crash not at all..Version: 1.8.0
Stable but needs changeThe app is really stable, however you recently watched ( not finished ) episodes appear middle of the 'for you' page. His should be at the top, instead of me having to scroll half way down a list of trash TV I could give a sheet less about. When you're clicking on a show on desktop it doesn't take you to an 'about page' for the show, it automatically starts playing an episode. You have to hover over the show, wait for a little drop down bar to appear, and then click on that to get the 'about' page with the episode list. There is also no way to know what shows are currently airing. It would be nice if they would make that easily seen, some kind of dot, star, check mark, anything. I haven't had cable in 10 years, it's nice to finally watch shows as they are airing, but I have no idea what's been on TV and is still airing current episodes..Version: 1.9.0
Like it, but . . .Occasionally the app just stops working, goes black, and forces me to get out of the app and then go back in to get it working. When moving one episode to the next it sometimes stalls, forcing me to fast forward a few seconds into the next episode to get it to restart. I figure it’s still ‘buggy’ since it’s so new. When I go to my list, and decide to check out a show, but then go back to my list, it takes me to the top of the list to start at again - I do have a long list. The biggest disappointment is that it advertises that everything from all of my favorite channels is in discovery+, but a show I was really looking forward to, Home Again with the Ford’s, isn’t in there. If I wasn’t paying through the nose for cable I wouldn’t be able to watch more than the first episode. There are a couple of other shows that are missing an early season that used to be in the HGTV or DIY apps before they were plundered for the discovery+ app..Version: 1.1.0
Love Discovery but app has issues.I love the shows on Discovery Plus! It took me a while to figure out how to get it to work with Chromecast because the ‘help section’ was no help. Support is actually great. They do respond and quickly. Issues. It’s hard to get a show to stop playing. Closing and disconnecting, I find the show often keeps playing. I’ll log back in to find it’s played through a few seasons of the show. You have to stop, disconnect and stop again. You can’t pause or rewind at the end of a show. Usually the option to go on to the next one starts after the show is over, here it’s 30 seconds or so in and very inconvenient. Also, if you stop a show at the very end it stays in your continue watching cue. Usually apps don’t do that. It basically never comes off either. You pretty much have to start the next episode. The shows are great. Worth the hassles of the app..Version: 14.28.0
New content is lacking somethingI subscribe to the ad free package. I love a lot of the older true crime shows and paranormal shows (before ghost hunting became all the rage). The new content must be aimed at a different age group/ mindset because it does absolutely nothing for me. I tried watching Crimes Gone Viral and it’s pathetic. I can watch a surveillance video and figure out what happened. Example: I started a random episode titled Grab and Go. After seeing a small portion of this surveillance video a talking head starts telling you how to perceive what you just saw. IMDB told me the hero of the story was David Mann - Fought off gunman. I knew the gun was either a shotgun or rifle from observations made while watching the relentlessly looping snippet of video. Searched for David Mann rifle, didn’t get much; searched for David Mann shotgun, found the news story. Watched the entire video and heard pertinent information from the man himself. I now feel fully informed. Took less than five minutes. Yes, it’s that terrible!.Version: 1.20.1
Amazing AppI’ve read plenty of reviews raving about the catalog and amazing price and how amazing it works on their phone etc which is 100% true! I won’t go into all the amazing details, not because they shouldn’t be said but because except for one little hiccup I do not have a single gripe about this platform. My family from ages 13-42 all have plenty to watch and enjoy. The single hiccup is the repeat offense of needing to sign in if you haven’t opened the app in a day or two. It is not as prevalent on our phones as our smart TVs but is a constant hiccup. And a minor one (I just need to remind them of the sign in.) I don’t know if this is an error or security platform but if it is the former can this be addressed in an update? As I have already stated I and my family enjoy the app immensely and have no thoughts of ever not using it..Version: 1.11.0
The appI absolutely LOVE Discovery +!!!! The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars and not 5, is for the function of the app on my iPhone and iPad…. Both of my devices are less than a year old, I work days away from home and in free time I like to watch my shows and a good majority of them are on Discovery +…. The app is slow, doesn’t load certain shows until I back out of them 3 or 4 times, it freezes up and I have to clear the app out and repeat. If Im not doing that, it’s taking a long time for the show to load before it will even play.( I don’t think it’s a WiFi problem because other apps and the internet work fine when connected to the same WiFi) I don’t know if anyone else is experiencing this, but if this can be fixed it would most definitely, in my opinion, be the best app for watching a lot of my favorite shows (and I have many subscriptions!).Version: 1.22.3
Updated review[Edit below] This app is packed with so many shows that I want to binge, & would happily stay subscribed beyond the 3 month period, but streaming is often dreadful. And it’s ONLY this app. On glorious rare occasions the shows are crisp, but more often than not they look worse than watching VHS on an antenna in the 70’s. Step it up & I’ll happily return.
EDIT: It was a lot of back & forth, & then a full month of no communication, but I finally heard back (on the day that I’d scheduled myself to unsubscribe…talk about timing). “I am pleased to inform you that our engineering team has found and fixed the issue that was causing the buffering and poor video quality when streaming on iPhones and iPads.” I’ve been kicking the app’s tires & I’m pleased. Changing the rating to 4 stars. Knocking one off, because I can’t multitask, which is annoying, but it’s worth the subscription otherwise..Version: 14.28.0
Good start, needs some workThe app is fairly stable and the service has a great library of shows. The areas it needs work are in app features and organization of shows within a season. App features needed are: Picture in Picture and easier access to resuming a show. Currently to resume, I have to either go to a show and then resume from there or on the home page scroll down to the bottom and find the episode I want to resume. It would also be nice to be able to mark an episode watched from the resume section because sometimes an episode is selected by accident and then you can’t get rid of it from the resume row.
As for organization, the example is Gold Rush where the season extras called The Dirt needs to be played throughout the season for it to make sense but it’s organized at the end so events have already occurred when watching mid season episodes of The Dirt. But all in all, a good app for launch..Version: 1.5.1
DisappointedUpdate: I was contacted by a develop shortly after my comment. I was told to go to the help area of the Discovery+ website. I went to the website but it only had the ability to login and download the app. Logged in, clicked on a show and have not had a problem since.
I wanted Discovery+ so I could watch Fixer Upper. Was able to get a 6 month promotion through Verizon and could not wait. Unfortunately it has taken forever to watch one episode. The App keeps crashing and I am only able to watch about two minutes at a time. Extremely frustrating. I am unable to download on my TV and can try to watch it on my iPad. I have restarted iPad, reinstalled the App and updated it and none of those have worked. I hope whatever the issue is it is fixed soon..Version: 1.16.0
Love it....but needs a few thingsI love Discovery plus there are just a few kinks I think need to be worked out....
1 Please Please Please bring back Picture in Picture mode!!!!!!! I love listening to the app in the background, having it playing while other apps are open and being able to play while the phone is locked. The app had this when it was first released and for some reason it just disappeared so this is a major want in order for me to keep paying for the app.
2 not as major but the new “channels” feature that just has non stop of the same show playing is great, but It’s not easily accessible from the Home Screen and I always have to look for the show to get that channel which is a little annoying..
All in all love the app and the discovery family of networks shows and with these changes I will be a happy customer.Version: 1.1.0
I have been waiting years for thisI love and enjoy Discovery Plus. I pay for the non commercials and It’s a one stop shop for every show I watched when I had cable TV. I primarily ordered it for Magnolia Network, Ghost Adventure series and HGTV. But I love exploring other content as well. Feedback, I would like to see all seasons uploaded for each show. Not just a few seasons. Other than that I have had no issues logging in and watching. The only issue I’ve come across is that if I watch a show on my phone, it doesn’t quite keep up to where I left off if I watch the same show on my TV (fire stick) or desktop computer. Overall i really enjoy D+ and I also use my account to login to the Magnolia website where I can watch content and shop as well. I’m happy with my service..Version: 14.28.0
My Experience So Far…In the short time that I’ve had Discovery+, I’ve had some great experiences. They offer a variety of shows to watch that I would not be able to watch otherwise because they’re the only streaming network providing it. But I do have some issues. If one of my family members watches for example Alaskan Bush People on THEIR account it shows up in MY continue watching even though I’ve never watched the show before. Also, when I pause an episode, I go to unpause it and it skips ahead a few seconds so I always have to rewind like 3 seconds. I understand this is a new streaming app but there’s quite a few bugs that need taken care of… many bugs I didn’t even mention… the ones I mentioned were just the most annoying ones..Version: 1.20.1
It has great promise but still glitchyApp is improving with time and use. Only reason I give it three stars. When it first came out it did a lot of weird things and crashed a lot. Crashing less, still glitching when streaming. The roku version is way more glitchy than the mobile version. We pay for ad-free content so I wish it would be a little more smooth like our other streaming content. We really don’t watch traditional “cable’ or “dish” anymore. It’s all about the apps on the smart tv and If I’m paying per ‘channel” I wish and hope that there’s no development bugs. Sadly I get kicked out of a show a lot, or it restarts, or sometimes I have to totally reboot the tv after using the discovery+ app. TV is relatively new (a year?) and no other app does this. Otherwise? I love the content. I love the variety. I love that it’s all in one place now and I don’t have seven or more apps for each channel..Version: 1.9.0
App needs some workI am a huge fan of this content. But this platform is lacking. When I watch a show the app doesn’t seem to record where I am and I will have to remember then go back to that show from the search function. The channels feature is very limited. If you are not a fan of the show’s highlighted then you really won’t use channels. The app has so much content and could be so great if the developers put a little more into it. The channels could really be better. Even a mirror of what is on the actual channels I.e. TLC all the time. As of now it’s difficult to find things and I need to really look for what I want to watch. I use the app regularly but only for what I know I want to see. It would be great if the functionality was easier and would filter out some stuff that is making it harder for me to find shows I want to watch..Version: 1.7.0
Unable To minimize well watchingI just started using this app and I love it a lot I watch it most of the day but if I get a text or an email or anything else it does not give me the ability to minimize it and check other things. All of my other apps allow me to minimize it while still watching it or keep it paused however I want so that I can therefore check my text messages check my emails certain things like that that I need to do throughout the day it would be really nice if that future could be added to this app I know that it would be beneficial I spoke with several people about it and everybody has the same only one complaint that we cannot minimize it we have to go completely out of the app in order to check other things on our phones or tablets and devices. Thank you very much

Discovery+ is working nowAt first people were upset the app was not working, but around 5pm MST it was working for me. So give it another try.
Discovery+ was immediately worth the $7 CAD. I get to watch all my favourite shows on the network, OCC, Dirty Jobs, Joe Kenda, all on demand. Thank you for bringing this amazing service to Canada..Version: 1.20.1
🤗So happy to have acces to it 🤗🤩.Version: 1.22.3
Finally!I’ve been waiting for an app like this for years. I absolutely love reality TV, not talking real housewives type reality but real quality entertaining shows. Since it’s about 90% of what my husband and I watch and we refuse to pay the ever increasing prices of cable TV and are bored of the selection Netflix has, this app really fills that gap and also fills my need for paranormal TV shows as well!.Version: 1.20.1
<3I can watch all my fav shows of true crime cases! 😁.Version: 15.1.0
Love the app but...I'm pleased with the content available through the app, but I’m a bit annoyed that it doesn't work with picture in picture mode on my iPad. I often have to check something on another app when I am watching something, and it would be nice if it kept playing while I did so..Version: 15.1.0
Many choicesSo many choices. I love that I don’t have to wait to watch a certain show. Great selection..Version: 15.1.0
A few bugs, but happyI have been waiting for Discovery to come to Canada for streaming and am super excited it’s finally here! With that being said, I have noticed a few bugs such as ending up with duplicate shows on my “continue watching” tab, and sometimes the app won’t load.
Overall I’m enjoying all the options and hope they keep it coming with fresh new content.Version: 15.1.0
It makes my meat hard for this kinda stuffLove it makes my peel back peel back..Version: 15.1.0

Best Streaming ServiceDiscovery plus has all of my favourite shows and for a great price. Streaming quality is good and fast even on my rural internet.Version: 15.0.0
Worth the price, needs PiP support for iPhone and iPadTotally worth the subscription price, more than enough content to keep you interested, but this app NEEDS Picture in Picture support!!.Version: 15.1.0
Love the app !It’s great ! But can you update it to see all my favourites on the pc site . I only can see 6 ..Version: 15.0.0
Discovery + menusI’d give it a higher rating but both my wife and I can’t see the menu to turn off subtitles when watching a video. We tried to uninstall and reinstall, updated the iPads, two different models of iPads one being brand new, and looked at the help menu but didn’t see anything there that would help..Version: 15.0.0
No subtitles!!It’s great, the shows are amazing! The UI is intuitive and easy ! But I can’t turn on the captions! It’s driving me nuts.Version: 15.0.0
Please add random playsI enjoy watching shows in random. Could you add a feature that continuously plays random videos that I have not watched yet..Version: 15.0.0
Love it…ButGreat channel, but still no downloads! Let’s get it going.Version: 15.0.0
All about discovery +❤️I LOVE DISCOVERY + SO MUCH 😁.Version: 15.0.0
One request!Love the app! One request: please add an option to remove “currently watching” shows from the row, the app doesn’t always delete it even though I’ve watched it and it’s really annoying having 10+ shows I’ve watched still showing in the row!.Version: 15.0.0
Discovery+I am trying to upgrade to get no commercials version, but cannot find it anywhere.Version:
Closed captioningI love the show options and that you seem to be diligent about CCs…but some of them are definitely not in sync. As a lip reader, it’s annoying as hell..Version: 15.0.0
Love it !Lots of good content for true crime lovers..Version: 15.0.0

App not working…Hello!
I recently downloaded an update and now I can’t open the discovery+ app on my phone at all… it tells me to please try again and just keeps doing that… please help!.Version: 14.28.0
DiscoveryApp is amazing! All my crime shows in one spot!!.Version: 14.28.0
Needs different streaming quality optionsHuge amount of good content but wrecks data plans if streaming on mobile as there is no way to reduce quality when streaming. App always seems to stream in absolute highest quality with no option to lower it..Version: 14.28.0
Happy to have this app but!Keeps shutting down and then I have to go back and find show and find where I left off or it pauses and I have to turn off my phone just to get back.is there something that can be done to fix this?.Version: 14.28.0
Still can’t castDid the most recent update and casting still does not work. Big letdown. Please fix this!.Version: 14.28.0
Very niceI love it.Version: 14.28.0
Good but needs some fixesDiscovery has great content but the app needs some features that most steaming services have already. Ability to watch on mobile while texting and using other apps on the phone specifically ..Version: 14.28.0
Discovery+ CanadaThere are ads but I don’t mind them! I do wish we could download episodes tho...Version: 14.27.0
The auto play is ruining it!Love the selection of shows! But the fact that there is no option to turn off auto play is a big downer, and it makes it even worse that it just starts another show (not even one in the same category) after the one you are watching ends (last episode of last season). So if you happen to fall asleep like 80% of us watching tv then prepare to be very annoyed. And have a massive list of shows on “continuing watching” that you 100% never even tried to start..Version: 14.28.0
Not up to date showsI subscribed because I like gold rush and Bering sea gold, however the shows are not updated. Bering sea gold and BSG on ice is two different show it was put together and incomplete! So disappointed..Version: 14.27.0
