    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!

  • 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 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 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.

    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)

    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!

  • 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).

    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.

  • Absolutely the best App available Feb 22, 2021

    By The Bad Spartan
    I have always loved science, history, paranormal, mysteries, social topics and so on. Of course due to my love of those subjects I often watch the channels associated with them like Discovery and History channel. However the platform on the Discovery+ App has opened my world the topics and interests I have dramatically since I now have access to not only the channels I’ve been familiar with, but now ones I didn’t know existed or didn’t realize were broadcasting the material I love so much. So to have them all in one place, for such a great reasonable price, also given it’s straight forward and easy use...it’s like it was made especially just for me! Thank you Discovery for creating this app for me and everyone else like me that still loves to learn!!!

  • 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!!!

  • A great app... until it wasn’t Jan 10, 2021

    By RWesleyLee
    Excellent app, overall. Unrivaled show selection, and relatively user friendly. My one complaint is that I️ occasionally use a VPN for extra security online. While it wasn’t a problem at first, I️ now get an error every time I️ open the app saying that I️ don’t have access because it doesn’t see me as in the US. However, I️ am located in the continental US. I️ tried turning off the VPN, restarting my phone, disconnecting from all networks, reinstalling the app, and all to no avail. I️ would hate to cancel my subscription, but I️ don’t see a way to use the app anymore! Downloaded beware! Do NOT have your VPN on when running the app. It will lock up the entire app.

    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Terrible language (parents beware!) and delayed seasons Feb 16, 2021

    By MrsSpan
    First, we do like that all the channels we watch are in 1 place. We do not have the glitches that others are reporting. We watch on FireTV. However, there’s a few things we do not like at all. We are SUPER disappointed in Freddie Dodges new show that’s a Discovery+ production PARENTS BEWARE The language is horrible. The first episode is ok then bam F bombs every other word. As adults we can’t even stomach watching and listening to it much less let our children watch. We probably could if it were at least bleeped out. It’s just a bummer bc we love Freddie and thought it would be a family show based on the first episode. We were wrong. Also, the main reason we got the subscription is for MAINE CABIN MASTERS on DIY bc we don’t get DIY on YouTubeTV. Zero of the new episodes are there yet. At least release them as they are being released on cable once a week. Please! #freeseason6
