  • Great App!! Mar 15, 2021

    By Weearose85
    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!!
  • Needs Some Kinks Worked Out Mar 15, 2021

    By atebyb12
    Overall, 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.
  • I love it, but it also can be frustrating. Mar 11, 2021

    By crispycully
    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.

    Overall it's a great app. Contains a variety of programs I enjoy to watch. New stuff all the time. One small issue, at least me me, when I'm watching a show/program on my tv and it goes into commercials, it freezes when coming back to the show. I have to disconnect the app for the TV and broadcast it back to the tv for it to work. This does not happen all the time, but over time it does get annoying.
  • 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!!

    I stream A LOT and this app is the one I use most frequently. There are new episodes of my favorite show, "Ghost Adventures" that you can't find in other apps or even On Demand with Xfinity. There's a great variety of things to watch at all times. The quality is clear and not glitchy or slow. It's affordable and a "must have" for me. I love Discovery+❤🥳💫🍀
  • 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.

    Unlike other streaming services, paying for the ad free subscription isn't like paying for two regular subscriptions. I think it was like $2 more? Who wouldn't choose that? Plus, it's the only place I can find every season of some of my favorite shows like Ghost Adventures and Expedition Unknown. I have had no issues with looping, lagging, sound or video quality and casting to my TV has been a breeze. Easily my favorite subscription service! Totally worth it!
  • 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.
  • 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.

    When the app works its good but it doesn't work that often. I continue to get error messages even after doing everything cutomer service says. I have cleared the cache and rebooted my device everything. I have had an open ticket with customer service too. After clearing the cache the first time it started to work again so they closed the ticket, but has since started up again. I would love to be able to use what I am paying for but I guess that isn't the case. I will be canceling very soon.

    Was working great till the last update. Now the audio doesn't match up with the video and the sound is choppy. Did everything they suggested and nothing. And I have the fastest internet you can get. If it doesn't get fixed soon, I'm dropping it. Found out the live channels are fine, it's just the past episodes that dont sync. Makes no sense.
  • 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).
  • May 13, 2021

    By M.K.
    Here is what is wrong with this app. 1. Most of the time all you get to watch is it buffering. 2. The ads freezes the whole app. 3. The ads constantly glitch and repeats a part over and over. 4. The ads glitch is rewinds the show back. If you try going forward to where you were it buffers and doesn't play again. 5. When you leave a show then click resume it restarts it all over. This app is just frustrating with all the problems and is almost worthless.
  • Spotty connection to Chromecast AND Apple TV Apr 30, 2021

    By megsy17
    I always cast from my phone to watch on my TV. All my other streaming services work seamlessly. With this app in particular, I can’t watch any episode of anything without constant buffering, skipping, lagging audio, fuzziness, and crashing when I cast. When I don’t cast, the stream works with no issues. And even more frustrating, the commercials play as they should without any of the problems. My internet connection is strong, my device is not out-of-date, I’ve done the suggested resets and power-on-and-off, my TV plays everything else just fine, but when I try and play from the Discovery+ app, i can’t watch without a headache from the problems. At times the chromecast and Apple TV icon flashes and disappears. This was not happening a month ago and it goes on for several days before I get a “good day” where there are not any problems. Seriously considering ending my subscription. I’ve taken this issue to the help service and they took down my information of versions and an update came out but that did not fix the problems.
  • May 7, 2021

    By Chris Lozano
    If I could give this app zero stars I would. Don't get me wrong the content is great and I was willing to fork out extra for the ad-free plan, but the app it full of glitches and issues. Everything will work fine in the app itself, if you like watching shows on a 6 inch screen your good, but cast it to your TV and bam lag, more lag, buffer, disconnect, error, etc. Discovery help will tell you in one email after the other (8 now) to clear your cache this resolves nothing. Ridiculous.
  • Good content but dislike some parts of the app May 14, 2021

    By JLPlemmons
    Great app as far as the content. Has several things I dislike about the app though. 1) I hate the auto play feature after all episodes of a program have been watched. I do not want the app to choose a random show for me to watch after my show ends. There is an option to exit out of the next episode but it does not work and the episode auto plays even if you click out of it. There needs to be an option to turn off auto play. 2) There needs to be a way to delete shows or episodes from the “continue watching” section. Sometimes I just want to check out a show but don’t end up actually wanting to watch it and would like to be able to delete these shows so they aren’t clogging up the section. 3) There needs to be a casting button from the main screen of the app. I don’t understand why you have to start an episode and then cast to the tv once the program has already started. Seems like just an extra step for no reason.

    Need better feature, option of remember the last views, download episodes to watch when internet are not available like HBO+, Netflix, Disney+. Discovery+ have a lot to do with this App to refine. Some episodes have subtitles and other not in the same series. Don't have "Share" option to share with friends and family that use the same App. "Share" option is a promotion tool of Discovery+ App, you can add a new subscriber to Discovery+.

    Horrible app! The app was great until it updated. Now, I can't watch any show for more than 6 mins without an error screen popping up saying technical difficulties to this video, try again or play another video. Cleared cached, cleared data, force stopped, turn app off, turn device off and on and still nothing. Ads make it crash too. I'm paying for something I can barely use. Fix the bugs or I want a refund for this trash 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.

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!!

  • 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!!!
  • Needs Some Kinks Worked Out Mar 15, 2021

    By atebyb12
    Overall, 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.
  • I love it, but it also can be frustrating. Mar 11, 2021

    By crispycully
    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.
  • 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.
  • App needs some work Apr 28, 2021

    By bdnjfkfienndnfijems
    I 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.
  • 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
  • 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!!
  • 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.

    I love the programming but watch mostly on my laptop. Doesn't display all episodes. When I chose a program only four episodes of the season show up on the list and it won't allow me scroll right. But if I just let the programs play it will keep going to the next episode. So if I want to look for an episode later in the season I have to go to the last one it shows and fast forward to the end and let it autoplay to the next episode and do it again until I can get to later episodes in the season.
  • 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.

    Great just upset I didn't get my rate changed when I got it when it was 6.99 and now it's 4.99 very unfair to keep the price the same in times like this. Thanks for responding but I'm still cancelling my subscription because you're screwing me and others by not changing my monthly fee. Plus telling me that you are happy to hear I'm a fan. That's a slap in the face. I'm not happy anymore. Very upsetting to me.

    By Hector Ambriz
    Love the new app. Easy to use, all the shows I watched as a kid are there. The reason for the low rating. Is that the app is very sensitive to switching to landscape or portrait mode. A simple tap of the phone will make the app go haywire causing it to crash. Once this is fixed, I will update the rating. Galaxy s21 Ultra
  • 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.

    I love the content.... but 9 times out of 10, the app doesn't work. Honestly makes me wish I didn't pay for the subscription bc I barely ever watch it w all the technical issues. Takes FOREVER to load, and never works when casting to my TV. I've had to Uninstall and reinstall the app so many times now.... please just fix the app so I can actually watch the subscription I paid for 🥲
  • Good start, needs some work Apr 13, 2021

    By MonkeySQ
    The 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.
  • No Chopped Apr 7, 2021

    By www63103
    ... with the exception of a “channel” that is shared with flipped which I NEVER want to watch. You can’t pause the stream for whatever reason you may need to. It’s really quite ridiculous. There is Chopped Canada eh..And other Chopped stuff but not an indexed catalog of “THE” Chopped which is probably one of their most watched programs. Not sure why they decided to go in this direction which is clearly the wrong call for I’m sure the majority of their subscriber base. Wondering when they will realize the error of their ways and make this service more desirable. I realize that you can see these episodes or at least most of them on the Food Network GO app however you have to watch commercials that you cannot fast forward through and when you pay for Discovery+ without commercials it would be nice to have the option of seeing the Chopped episode you want to see when you want to see it without commercials.

    When the app works its good but it doesn't work that often. I continue to get error messages even after doing everything cutomer service says. I have cleared the cache and rebooted my device everything. I have had an open ticket with customer service too. After clearing the cache the first time it started to work again so they closed the ticket, but has since started up again. I would love to be able to use what I am paying for but I guess that isn't the case. I will be canceling very soon.

    Was working great till the last update. Now the audio doesn't match up with the video and the sound is choppy. Did everything they suggested and nothing. And I have the fastest internet you can get. If it doesn't get fixed soon, I'm dropping it. Found out the live channels are fine, it's just the past episodes that dont sync. Makes no sense.
  • 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).
  • Spotty connection to Chromecast AND Apple TV Apr 30, 2021

    By megsy17
    I always cast from my phone to watch on my TV. All my other streaming services work seamlessly. With this app in particular, I can’t watch any episode of anything without constant buffering, skipping, lagging audio, fuzziness, and crashing when I cast. When I don’t cast, the stream works with no issues. And even more frustrating, the commercials play as they should without any of the problems. My internet connection is strong, my device is not out-of-date, I’ve done the suggested resets and power-on-and-off, my TV plays everything else just fine, but when I try and play from the Discovery+ app, i can’t watch without a headache from the problems. At times the chromecast and Apple TV icon flashes and disappears. This was not happening a month ago and it goes on for several days before I get a “good day” where there are not any problems. Seriously considering ending my subscription. I’ve taken this issue to the help service and they took down my information of versions and an update came out but that did not fix the problems.
  • Good content but dislike some parts of the app May 14, 2021

    By JLPlemmons
    Great app as far as the content. Has several things I dislike about the app though. 1) I hate the auto play feature after all episodes of a program have been watched. I do not want the app to choose a random show for me to watch after my show ends. There is an option to exit out of the next episode but it does not work and the episode auto plays even if you click out of it. There needs to be an option to turn off auto play. 2) There needs to be a way to delete shows or episodes from the “continue watching” section. Sometimes I just want to check out a show but don’t end up actually wanting to watch it and would like to be able to delete these shows so they aren’t clogging up the section. 3) There needs to be a casting button from the main screen of the app. I don’t understand why you have to start an episode and then cast to the tv once the program has already started. Seems like just an extra step for no reason.

    Need better feature, option of remember the last views, download episodes to watch when internet are not available like HBO+, Netflix, Disney+. Discovery+ have a lot to do with this App to refine. Some episodes have subtitles and other not in the same series. Don't have "Share" option to share with friends and family that use the same App. "Share" option is a promotion tool of Discovery+ App, you can add a new subscriber to Discovery+.
  • 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.

    The app casts the show if the show even loads then makes it to the screen it crashed 2 minutes later stating technical issues. This app has been glitchy a lot and if it's not fixed soon I'm cancelling. I feel ripped off for the last month of not getting what I paid for. Even on my phone it will say technical issues without casting. It has such a good catalog, such a shame.
  • Terrible With Chromecast May 6, 2021

    By Shanae Palo
    This app is straight trash with Chromecast. It constantly spins, constantly stops. It is the worst. When you contact customer support they are as incompetent as their app. You hear clear your cookies and cache. You hear update the app. Listen, no matter how much I do that, this app on this IPAD using Chromecast doesn’t get any better. I’m tired of having to constantly come out of it. Also, it doesn’t pick up where you left off. It constantly starts the entire show over. I have to constantly remember where I was last and pull it forward that way and again it spins. I have high speed internet so that is not the problem. The problem is this app is trash with Chromecast. Straight trash. Not everyone has the Apple thingy and nor do they want it. Take some time, have some decency and work on the Chromecast part of this app. I’ve been writing this review and the whole time it is spinning. Stuck. This is ridiculous. No other app does this only this app. Straight trash.

    By M.K.
    Here is what is wrong with this app. 1. Most of the time all you get to watch is it buffering. 2. The ads freezes the whole app. 3. The ads constantly glitch and repeats a part over and over. 4. The ads glitch is rewinds the show back. If you try going forward to where you were it buffers and doesn't play again. 5. When you leave a show then click resume it restarts it all over. This app is just frustrating with all the problems and is almost worthless.

    By Chris Lozano
    If I could give this app zero stars I would. Don't get me wrong the content is great and I was willing to fork out extra for the ad-free plan, but the app it full of glitches and issues. Everything will work fine in the app itself, if you like watching shows on a 6 inch screen your good, but cast it to your TV and bam lag, more lag, buffer, disconnect, error, etc. Discovery help will tell you in one email after the other (8 now) to clear your cache this resolves nothing. Ridiculous.

    By Jackie Mc
    Horrible app! The app was great until it updated. Now, I can't watch any show for more than 6 mins without an error screen popping up saying technical difficulties to this video, try again or play another video. Cleared cached, cleared data, force stopped, turn app off, turn device off and on and still nothing. Ads make it crash too. I'm paying for something I can barely use. Fix the bugs or I want a refund for this trash app!
