  • 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 have a smart TV and downloaded discovery+ thru google play. I want to change to Commercial free and no one will help me! It is so frustrating because you cannot talk to a live person.

    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.

    This needs a few improvements to get 5 stars. First, the audio on the app only does stereo, it does not do Dolby even though the TV channel broadcasts shows in Dolby. So not only does that affect the sound quality, but the volume as well -- stereo comes through MUCH louder on fewer speakers, which means every time I switch from TV to D+, I have to lower the volume a lot, and vice versa. Second, there is no way to know when new episodes of shows in My List come out. It's as if Discovery only expects people to binge watch entire previous seasons and not keep up with the current season. Notifications of new episodes as they come out each week is a must! Third, there is no way to sort My List, it gets saved in the order that shows were added, making it nearly impossible to find anything.
  • 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 was able to resolve the previous problem I had with the Android TV app and have removed that review. Clearing the cache and a restart of the device resolved the issue. The app functions as it should. and my rating has been updated to note that. I wish the service also had live streams of the channels, but that's a comment of the service, not the app. The app is easy to navigate and the interface is clean.

    Our 1 gripe. You would THINK that the ability to upgrade your plan and give them an extra 2 bucks a month would be a simple process LoL. The Android TV process has to be the dumbest thing I have ever seen. Cancel sub then back to the app to choose a new plan. Except you have to wait until the month is up LoL One of the best UX I've ever seen with this one exception. Dumb!
  • 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.

    I don't have sound using the app downloaded thru google play to my smart tv. When I access thru Amazon Fire, I have sound. Either way it seems hard to find what you want. I had one instance where I wanted to save something to my list when the item would only play, not save. Update: I unplugged tv and cable modem for 60 seconds and then rebooted. I now have sound and youtube has started working again (it had quit working after discovery installation)
  • 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.

  • 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).

    This is the third month I have been billed for discovery plus after emailing them multiple times that I want to unsubscribe and cancel my membership, but they have not helped me. I keep getting billed for something I don't want and can't even use! I am very upset by this. They should make it much easier to cancel a subscription. It's like a scam where you can't ever cancel and just keep getting billed until you have to cancel your credit card to keep from getting charged anymore! Ridiculous!

    Update! Just checking in for the latest update. Same issue. Expect a one star review on each update until this is resolved?!! And no, I’m not filling out our BS form to nowhere. Worthless app on Nvidia Shield. Automatically crashes upon open. Lazy development team couldn’t even be bothered to test their deployment. Typical. EDIT: Hey, did you bother testing this on a 4K TV? This is why your app is crashing. On a hunch, I set my TV resolution to 1080P, and I can now access the login screen. Your app needs to be able to handle a Android TV 4K rez. downsampled to the appropriate viewport size.
  • Video quality fluctuates Jun 11, 2021

    By LaciS88
    I hate that the only streaming app I have on my phone that doesn’t allow Picture in Picture is the discovery+ app. I love to watch shows while I multitask and I can’t do that if I want to watch from the app. As much as I love the shows on Discovery+, once my free subscription is up I won’t renew it because I have too much to do and not having PIP limits me. I would never pay for a streaming service that limits my ability to multitask and get things done. I literally have to stop and exit the app anytime I need to respond to a message or send proofs to someone. It’s irritating and the overall experience reminds me of losing my virginity. Clumsy, dissatisfying and finding myself asking “why?” With all the technology we have at our fingertips why would I waste my time with an unpolished app? A woman has needs. I need to be entertained while also being satisfied on every level. This app is like going back to the man I lost my virginity to 40+ years later and he literally can not go the distance. To get right up to the brink only for him to go flaccid. Unfulfilled pleasure. Left wanting. This app needs viagra, to put it bluntly.

    Why on earth can't you do a login like every other streaming service on the planet with the code and you go to the website to login? So now I have to type my super complex password that I generate via lastpass WITH THE REMOTE? I can't even do it. So I decided to make my password simple, but you require 8 characters, numbers and both cases for a freaking streaming password. (Really?) So I have been a paying subscriber for about 6 minutes right now. and you've already screwed up the process enough to get me to come here and write a bad review. Lame. Lame. Lame.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    By Princess pinterest
    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!!! ❤️🙋🏻‍♀️
  • 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 needs a few improvements to get 5 stars. First, the audio on the app only does stereo, it does not do Dolby even though the TV channel broadcasts shows in Dolby. So not only does that affect the sound quality, but the volume as well -- stereo comes through MUCH louder on fewer speakers, which means every time I switch from TV to D+, I have to lower the volume a lot, and vice versa. Second, there is no way to know when new episodes of shows in My List come out. It's as if Discovery only expects people to binge watch entire previous seasons and not keep up with the current season. Notifications of new episodes as they come out each week is a must! Third, there is no way to sort My List, it gets saved in the order that shows were added, making it nearly impossible to find anything.

    I was able to resolve the previous problem I had with the Android TV app and have removed that review. Clearing the cache and a restart of the device resolved the issue. The app functions as it should. and my rating has been updated to note that. I wish the service also had live streams of the channels, but that's a comment of the service, not the app. The app is easy to navigate and the interface is clean.
  • 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.

    I have two TiVo Stream devices... I was able to install Discovery+ on one of the devices when this serviced launched. Was able to access and sign into Discovery+ with no problems. Today, I am installing the app on my other TiVo Stream device and I am unable to use the google keyboard with this device. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the google keyboard and I am still having the same issue. I am also use the keyboard on all other apps. Disappointing that this is occurring so early in the game. UPDATE: I was able to install a different keyboard app and I was able to sign into Discovery+ without further issue. I have changed my rating for this application. Thank you.

    Needs some randomization, I'd like some Pandora-style queue that will play a different episode from some set of (or similar) shows. These are not binge-y shows
  • The app does not crash no problems streams this fine but some shows are missing. May 20, 2021

    By Lizzy Jen
    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.
  • Stable but needs change May 24, 2021

    By MidoriAlexandros
    The 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.

  • 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 don't have sound using the app downloaded thru google play to my smart tv. When I access thru Amazon Fire, I have sound. Either way it seems hard to find what you want. I had one instance where I wanted to save something to my list when the item would only play, not save. Update: I unplugged tv and cable modem for 60 seconds and then rebooted. I now have sound and youtube has started working again (it had quit working after discovery installation)
  • 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.
  • 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 Streaming Service With A Great Price Jun 12, 2021

    By MrZark
    Discovery+ has one of the lowest priced streaming plans out there. For five dollars, you can watch any of their shows with limited ads. For two dollars more, you can watch it with no ads. If you’re on a strict budget this is the service to use. You get a rather large selection of shows from the TV channels that are listed. Some of these shows are not even seeing re-runs anymore. The iOS app has some issues, however, which takes away from having a great experience. I like to watch Discovery+ on my breaks at work. At the end of my breaks, I’ll usually have to pause what I’m watching in the middle of a episode. When I want to come back to that same episode, the timeline for whatever reason will skip to the end. This is highly frustrating. Especially when it auto plays the next episode. Then I’ll have to go back to the show’s episode list and scroll back to where I left off. Another issue is, the audio will cut out at random points. Usually, it can be fixed by closing the episode and tapping it again.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Video quality fluctuates Jun 11, 2021

    By LaciS88
    I hate that the only streaming app I have on my phone that doesn’t allow Picture in Picture is the discovery+ app. I love to watch shows while I multitask and I can’t do that if I want to watch from the app. As much as I love the shows on Discovery+, once my free subscription is up I won’t renew it because I have too much to do and not having PIP limits me. I would never pay for a streaming service that limits my ability to multitask and get things done. I literally have to stop and exit the app anytime I need to respond to a message or send proofs to someone. It’s irritating and the overall experience reminds me of losing my virginity. Clumsy, dissatisfying and finding myself asking “why?” With all the technology we have at our fingertips why would I waste my time with an unpolished app? A woman has needs. I need to be entertained while also being satisfied on every level. This app is like going back to the man I lost my virginity to 40+ years later and he literally can not go the distance. To get right up to the brink only for him to go flaccid. Unfulfilled pleasure. Left wanting. This app needs viagra, to put it bluntly.
  • 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.

    HOW DO I GET DISCOVERY PLUS ON MY NEW LG TV????????????? I HAVE AN ACCOUNT AND ITS ON ALL MY OTHER TVS!
  • 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 installed app on my smart tv. Subscribed with the monthly fee. App keeps crashing & I was told to uninstall & re-install app. I can find no place with the app which will allow me to do that. Have been unable to get any help from Discovery. Can someone please help me???

    By Kristen Phillips
    This is the third month I have been billed for discovery plus after emailing them multiple times that I want to unsubscribe and cancel my membership, but they have not helped me. I keep getting billed for something I don't want and can't even use! I am very upset by this. They should make it much easier to cancel a subscription. It's like a scam where you can't ever cancel and just keep getting billed until you have to cancel your credit card to keep from getting charged anymore! Ridiculous!

    Update! Just checking in for the latest update. Same issue. Expect a one star review on each update until this is resolved?!! And no, I’m not filling out our BS form to nowhere. Worthless app on Nvidia Shield. Automatically crashes upon open. Lazy development team couldn’t even be bothered to test their deployment. Typical. EDIT: Hey, did you bother testing this on a 4K TV? This is why your app is crashing. On a hunch, I set my TV resolution to 1080P, and I can now access the login screen. Your app needs to be able to handle a Android TV 4K rez. downsampled to the appropriate viewport size.

    Why on earth can't you do a login like every other streaming service on the planet with the code and you go to the website to login? So now I have to type my super complex password that I generate via lastpass WITH THE REMOTE? I can't even do it. So I decided to make my password simple, but you require 8 characters, numbers and both cases for a freaking streaming password. (Really?) So I have been a paying subscriber for about 6 minutes right now. and you've already screwed up the process enough to get me to come here and write a bad review. Lame. Lame. Lame.
