For many, the Discovery slate of channels are the best in class for comfort viewing, whether you enjoy the high-octane food frenzies over on the Food Network, the messy relationships found on TLC, or the real-life animal content of the Discovery Channel. If that sounds right up your alley, then Discovery+ might be the streamer for you.
The service launched in January 2021 with “50 original titles and over 150 hours of exclusive content,” according to their press release, comprising several segments of the Discovery arm from lifestyle to cooking, true crime, and nature. Those numbers continue to grow, with over 1,000 hours of original content now on the site. These days, the service is not only the definitive place to stream your favorite Discovery shows, it features exclusive spinoffs of many of the top TLC, Food Network, and HGTV series. Discovery+ costs $4.99 a month to use, quite a bargain for reality lovers when you consider how much bingeable content is available.
