  • Best app, no connection issues Jan 9, 2021

    By Sjb156
    This 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.

  • App needs improvement Feb 13, 2021

    By chrgarre
    I 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!!

    This is by far THE BEST tv Channel app. I may be a litle biased because this app is basically a collection of all the channels, the only channels I watch. So happy they're all in 1 place now. I'm HAPPY to pay the few bucks for the service. The app is easy to navigate and looks great. Definitely 1 of the best apps out. Good job!!!!

  • Great content- glitchy app Jan 16, 2021

    By greenllamabean
    I 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.

  • Great app but connection issues and no active watch bar Feb 20, 2021

    By A. Hernz
    This 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.

    Not worth paying for. I'm running a new 2021 Chromecast, 20mb+ connection and streaming quality goes in and out constantly, makes the experience terrible. I don't have any problems with Netflix, Prime, or Hulu. Why not license the content to one of them? From other review this has been a problem for years. Very disappointing, will be canceling the service.

  • App need lots of work Feb 28, 2021

    By saraloz195
    The contents of the app are great and love watching the shows I love. BUT the app is like using the very first streaming apps that ever came out. I use the app to stream to my TV and when I do the quality of the video is so awful. (No I’m not just watching older shows. I watch the magnolia network shows and the quality was still bad ONLY when streaming to my TV.) I haven’t had this problem with any of my other streaming apps. I can’t use my phone to answer a text without fear of having the app glitch out when streaming to my TV. There have been many times when I get a FaceTime call and I can’t easily pause the video to answer. When that happens I have to close the app then re-open the app, find the show I was watching, press play from where ever it wants to play (from the very beginning or a whole different episode) then press pause. After my calls, I have to re find my place and I had a problem with finding my place then after an ad break it hopped back to the very beginning of the episode (I had to restart the app). It is not user friendly but all streaming apps have gone through this phase so I will keep the app in the hopes that it will be better in the near future. If not I’ll just cancel and delete the app. I STRONGLY SUGGEST HAVING A WAY TO STREAM TO A TV BEFORE PRESSING PLAY ON A SHOW (helps with the long buffer).

    First, shows I watch on Discovery's channels are either missing or at least one season behind. Some examples are Cabin Masters, the latest show from the Fords, and Chopped. The app is horrible to navigate. It shows trending but not what you watch or watched last. It doesn't show you new episodes of shows from your list. The list doesn't separate by channel or category or allow you to rank by importance. I am very disappointed and feel like I am wasting my money. Will probably leave.

    So far this platform is riddled with issues for me. Freezing, audio dropping, shows not resuming where they left off. I have an unknown device on my account that I can't remove because that choice isn't even working. I can't find any information on how to fix that. Almost unwatchable. Update: It's now even worse. I've tried all the shenanigans suggested and it still plays terrible. Maybe it's time to accept that the problem is on your end and fix it!

    I have a 2016 Samsung LED 4K Smart TV and the Discovery Plus app only supports 2017 or newer Samsung TVs. So this app gets one star for not supporting Smart TVs that are over 4 years old. I mean, I realize TVs have come down in price but not supporting a 4-year-old Smart TV is just stupid. The TV will run any other app (Disney Plus, Netflix, Amazon, etc). If you're going to launch a subscription service you need to design the app so it will at least work with 4-year-old technology.

    I really wish I could give you more stars! This is the best App we have and own now in our home. We also have several more tv channel apps that do not compair to Discovery+ I absolutely love everything on here and I tip my hat to y'all! Be had a big snow storm a week ago and didn't have anything to watch and when we put this on our TV, we haven't been able to talk about nothing else! So thank you so much for putting everything my husband and I love rolled up in one App! ✌️From Tennessee!

  • All the shows our family watches—1 INSANELY LOW PRICE! Jan 30, 2021

    By cdiocares
    Pro: GREAT VALUE, ad and ad-free options, multiple channels, large selection of shows and exclusive plus-only shows Future improvements? PICTURE-IN-PICTURE feature not supported When I saw advertisements for this app, I was floored. It has the true crime shows I have been watching for years and the reality shows my mom adores—IN THE SAME APP. We don’t have to pay for cable anymore, and we pay one low price!! We chose ad free for $2 more. $4.99 ad price or $6.99 ad free, so this monthly subscription is less than $10 a month either way! No other streaming service is cheaper or better for what our family loves to watch. My only qualm is that it does not support picture-in-picture viewing (using iPhone), so when I want to check my email while I’m still listening and watching, I’m not able to do so without the app minimizing and having to reopen it. I hope they update this feature into an already awesome subscription service in the future. That being said, I absolutely adore this app and service. Thank you so much for saving my family and me a bunch of money while still being able to watch the things we love!!!

    This is awesome!!! There are TONS of shows with many different networks, offering something for those who enjoy cooking shows to those who enjoy crime shows. If you can't find anything to watch on this app, you have some problems!! And you can purchase the commercial free version, another great thing about the app.

  • Love it....but needs a few things Feb 1, 2021

    By Missmolly96
    I 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

  • A lot of great shows but... Jan 21, 2021

    By Heather D
    There’s a lot of great shows on here, but there’s also a LOT of shows missing. This is especially apparent on the History Channel tab where I was hoping to have access to the old-school documentaries, that are actually about history, that I miss, now that the channel is all reality TV. But I guess they’re lost to the oblivion because they’re not here or on any other app I can find. There’s other notable shows that should be on here that aren’t like Border Security. The Food Network tab is my most-watched, but even it is not all-inclusive. Finally, I don’t understand why Magnolia is a preview only. It adds value to this app, and with all the apps I’m already paying for, paying separately for Magnolia is going to be a really tough sell. All that said, I’m keeping Discovery+ in my portfolio of apps because the pros outweigh the cons.

  • Some suggestions Jan 10, 2021

    By PH 000
    I’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.

  • Service seems fine, app needs work Feb 26, 2021

    By AutumnD76
    I’ve only been using Discovery + for a few days now. So far the service seems fine and I don’t have any problems with buffering or anything. I do have a few issues with the app itself. I add things to my list and then if I have too many items they just disappear off of the list. They will still be saved if I go to the actual show, but that doesn’t help me if I want to look them up very quickly. Also I would like to be able to view my list alphabetically or even perhaps latest updated episodes instead of what I just added to the list. And call me weird but I would really like an option so that I didn’t have to have each episode continuous. Sometimes I’m not a huge binge watcher and I just want to catch one or two episodes. Edit: I discover that I think there’s 100 items allowed on “My List”. If I had something past those 100 items then the oldest items is automatically removed from the list on its own.

  • Like it, but . . . Feb 18, 2021

    By Tina M Mn
    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.

  • Waste Feb 2, 2021

    By Da Real TeeBabee
    I have just registered for my new account on the Discovery + app and I am highly disappointed. I was so excited to get this subscription because of my favorite show 90 Fiancé and now I have learned that I’m not able to stream the episodes. Each time I click on the name of the show it only gives me the option to view the show on its “live channel option”. I’m not able to view past episodes of the 90 Fiancé show. This is very frustrating to me because this is my only reason for signing up for this subscription and now I’m not able to view the material I desire as advertised. My other issue I have with this app is the Bravo channel is not included to watch streaming episodes via the app also. I would have loved to give this review 5 stars if only those issues could possibly be resolved. I won’t be recommending this app to anyone and I am considering canceling my subscription as well if these issues continue to persist. Thank you for your time.

  • I guess I’ll be the first to give a review Jan 6, 2021

    By Cas7796
    I keep hearing about this over and over with all the advertisements that TLC was showing every 10-15 minutes so I couldn’t wait to try it. I paid the $6.99 without the ads. The only thing I was disappointed is that there is no Bravo channel added to this package that could be something you guys could consider in the future. And in the future I hope you guys could add some movie/News channels. Sorry I had to go down in my star rating I think of five but now it’s at or two because I keep getting an error message I’ll play a show and within a minute or two it kicks out. Says Internet try fixing the Internet still does the same thing I hope you guys can get this fixed before my subscription kicks in or I’m going to cancel it. Got to have a better way for us to get a hold of you guys. Because of all these glitches that everybody is having we should be giving an extension on our seven day free trial

    The app is very sub par. It is missing a lot of quality of life functionalities. The app should be totally finished and ready to go before you start charging people for it.. Casting is a pain in the neck and you can only do it after you've already started playing the video. It's 2021 and this app feels like it's from 5 years ago. Just copy the netflix or amazon ui..

    This app is nothing more than a expensive money grab app on top of your cable bill whichever you choose, $4.99 or $6.99 depending. You can keep this app. I read that some cable companies are thinking about dropping the Discovery Channel and i hope they do. I hope your app goes bust, and if you take my review off, i'll only put it back on.

    For the amount of advertising they're putting out for this app you would think it wouldn't be grade school quality. You should be able to connect to Google Cast prior to playing a show just like every other streaming app I've used. You should also have a personal que that lists only unwatched shows on your list. Homestly it just barely gets teh job done, I have it free for 6 months, once that's up if the app doesn't improve I'm out.
