Forget binge watching! 2/5
I have the app for our Roku and I was excited to have all my favorite channels and shows in one place. The app and interface is SUCH a disappointment! If I choose one of my favorite shows, it doesn’t automatically play the next episode! You have to choose and play each episode individually, making for an awful streaming experience. I keep HGTV on all day. Guess I can’t cut the cord with this one! I may not pay to subscribe until this is fixed. bah!
Love it 5/5
I was doubtful at first because so many streaming sites alway claim they have more content when they don’t.
This one has more of my favorite and plus my old time favorite shows like survivorman and dirty jobs.
I would like to suggest a few more shows, Cities of the Underworld, Life After People, UFO Hunters, Live Rescue
Now I can cancel some of the other sites. Also this is a reasonable and affordable price for no adds. I’m in a fixed low income and this is perfect for me.
My Hometown 5/5
I’ve only used this app once (it’s new to me) but I enjoyed having HGTV available whenever I wanted.
I wrote a review earlier 5/5
but forgot to mention one think.. if you add shows in 4K hdr this app would be truly amazing.. it would actually be my fav app!
Freezes, drops, and will not load. If you want a lot of down time, try to stream on this impossible app. Don’t waste your precious time trying to stream......,,
Lack of latest aired episodes 1/5
Great app and the available content is fantastic, but the lack of latest aired episodes makes this a failure. Here’s one of many examples. The entire latest season of My Big Fat Fabulous Life is unavailable. This means I need to watch on cable. So what’s the point of this app?
Shows are withheld.. + glitchy on phone and Apple TV 1/5
Multiple shows on multiple networks are withheld from the App catalog. I noticed it most with History channel shows, and much of the OWN programming. But, shows are missing everywhere. Also, many of the Discovery originals have no release dates and are represented as available when you sign up, and no future release dates are given. Sneaky seeming moves all around. I was so excited to pay for this, but I’m left beyond disappointed, and feeling like they misrepresented things quite a bit.
Not to mention, the app has multiple issues playing properly on the iPhone and the Apple TV. Not just on my devices, but friends and family who have the app are all experiencing similar troubles.
If the developer writes and says “please let us know how we can improve the app”, like they have regarding other criticisms, I would say... read the above paragraph again, and please don’t patronize us with a sentence like that. It’s a symptom of the review itself. The feedback is listed above.
- regretfully I’m an unhappy, subscription canceling, ex-subscriber
I would love it if it used the Picture in Picture feature. I don’t like that I can minimize the screen and multitasking
Complete Mess On Next Episode 1/5
Trying to watch Gold Rush... if I FF to end of show it locks up and there is nothing I can do but exit the app. This is rookie stuff guys!
Love it but... 4/5
Great app. Love the content. Works pretty good. That said the casting button box whatever you call it doesn’t appear on the app till you actually play a show. Only when something is playing can you cast it to the smart tv/device. Most apps have it in the top right corner or at the bottom corner somewhere that can be seen anytime while on the app. Like I said it’s hidden till you play a video. Please update it to be visible anywhere on the app outside of the video player. Thank you.
By my name is samantha
this app is honestly amazing i have all my favorite shows in one
I like the app, but wish it would tell me if there were “new episodes.”
New episodes? 2/5
The new episodes of all my favorite paranormal shows are supposed to be streaming on this app, which is the only reason I downloaded it, but I have yet to see anything other than past seasons. There’s consistent errors playing episodes and with AirPlay and today the app won’t even load. Work out the bugs and actually have the content that’s advertised or stop advertising false info!
It’s improved but there’s still more to fix 3/5
The app is working much better with Apple TV remote, but Closed Captioning doesn’t work. This is something that should be corrected ASAP.
Sorry..try back later.. 1/5
I keep getting the same message no matter what I am trying to watch. This is on my iPad and it really started after my subscription started. Fire stick is not having this issue.. very frustrating..
Best app by far! 5/5
I have several streaming apps, and this one by far is the best! Plus, to pay a little extra for no commercials/ads is definitely worth it!
Please fix 1/5
Please fix the buffering and it stops constantly
Great shows, Awful streaming 3/5
Love the shows on discovery+ but the streaming to our TV is an awful picture. It is jumpy and difficult to watch. I’m not going to cancel it, I’m just going to trust that these issues will get resolved as more people jump on board.
At first... 1/5
I thought it would be great until I realized they aren’t adding new shows... if this isn’t fixed soon I may end my subscription!
It’s ok. 3/5
Just got Discovery + , lots of content but I immediately realized that there is not a PIP feature for use on my iPhone. I like the tv playing in the background as I do other things. To me no PIP is a detriment and I may not keep the service unless that is going to change.
Discovery needs a geography lesson 1/5
“Streaming access is available only when you are located in the US or certain US territories.” Last I checked, Indiana was located in the US. Yes, location services are on. No, I am not using a VPN or otherwise masking my location.
I will give it 5 stars if it had pip capabilities.
Very disappointed! 1/5
I was so excited to sign up for Discovery+. It is all the channels I love on cable. Imagine my disappointment when all the shows I tried watching were so blurry and pixelated that I couldn’t see what was going on, especially during prime time. I went to tech support just now and article basically told me it must be my equipment and how to fix it. I find it strange that I don’t have any of these problems on Disney+, Netflix or Prime video and I’m using the same equipment. Hope they improve their service or I will cancel my subscription. Price is reasonable and shows are good but that doesn’t do me any good if I am constantly frustrated by the quality of the visual.
I kinda like it 4/5
discovery plus app it’s a good app they have all kind of show for me to watch the downside about it doesn’t have the app for PS4 unless Sony have the app for it...but it does have the app for iPad and Samsung smart tv right now checkin it out for 7 days free trial and if I like it I will pay for it and if I don’t I’m gonna cancel it....
A lot of content but... 4/5
The + is missing. There should be live streams of all the channels in addition to the back library.
Awesome content! Cable is so 20th Century 5/5
I’m amazed and incredibly pleased with this app. It’s affordable and is the channel app for thinking people as well as the curious. Great documentary content, real crime, nature, science—you name it, Discovery + has it! THE BEST!!!! You will not regret this one; it’s awesome.
By far the best 4/5
I love discovery+
I gave 4 stars and not 5 because the app is NOT capable of pip.
Love it 5/5
So good! All the channels we love, especially the new Magnolia Network!
Good some of the same time 4/5
I’m having continued issues with watching a show and error 10012 ‘you are not connected to the internet’ happening. I can still hear the program but it’s an error message on screen. I have to close the app and then open it again. Incredibly frustrating as it happens often
Absolutely Love this app but it has one flaw 4/5
By Sammie brutality
I’ll be in the middle of an episode and my screen goes black. You can’t rewind, pause or fast forward. You have to back out and go back into the episode to resume. This has happened multiple times since it’s been released. Other than that, great content. I’m really enjoying this app.
Great app! Needs the Air date of each program 4/5
Great service for a great price. Just need the air date of each episode added to the service. I know that might be “working as designed” but many people would prefer that information. Take a poll, or a vote and see.
Verizon customers 1/5
Expect to be charged $6.99 a month right off the bat there is no 12 month free promo and Discovery+ has zero customer service.
Cancel subscription 1/5
I can find the website to cancel subscription
Great content 4/5
Love this app and the grouping of channels on the app. Only one “complaint” is that sometimes the episodes will pause for a few seconds and then skip ahead in the few seconds that it pauses. I tried backtracking to see if it was my wifi but it would keep doing it in the same spot. I’m assuming this is some sort of “bug” if you will I’m not a tech person but that’s the only thing I can chalk it up to. Hopefully this gets fixed soon but other than that this is an amazing app and I love the services!
4 digit code? 5/5
I wish I could cast from my phone to my tv, but it ask for a 4 digit code and I don’t know where to get it from.
By Gary D Smith
Now that I have the App on my iPad how do I watch Discovery + on my Smart TV?
Great app 3/5
Great app, extremely glitchy, glitches every 5 or so minutes.. that gets VERY annoying!
Picture in Picture please! 4/5
I don’t use it much because it doesn’t offer picture-in-picture. I multitask while I watch shows. Can’t do it with this app.
WE LOVE IT 5/5
It has such a great array of shows. Everyone NEEDS THIS
When it works 3/5
Sometimes it tells me that I’m not in the United States I live in Texas I have to delete the app and reinstall the app for to work very annoying
It’s good but 3/5
It doesn’t show new shows and it doesn’t show where u left off on what u were watching u have to reopen the show and figure out where u left off not a big deal but would b nice. Also to see what new episodes that played.
Good Bones 5/5
By Mr.Buttcheek man
Loved the extras, the show gives me inspiration. Definitely got me through being home bound during covid.
No video 3/5
By Prpud mom
I can’t see the picture! I can hear it but no video
Wow is this disappointing 1/5
I can’t believe how much they build this thing up, then slam you in the face with disappointment.
Don’t get me wrong the app is GREAT. If you DO NOT want to watch ANY shows that are current. Only 1 of the MANY MANY shows I watch is on the current season. Many are 2-3 seasons behind OR just flat out missing a season here and there.
If you are looking to stay current on your shows ???? This is NOT the app for you.
It’s Fine 4/5
I really do like it. But there’s a lot of older shows that I’ve seen on cable for a long time. The new shows there’s so few actual episodes. The magnolia shows there’s like one episode each. Bobby and Giada in Italy there’s only like four episodes. So even though they’re advertising like all there is all these new shows there are hardly any episodes. I’ve been watching most of these networks for a very long time and I’ve seen lots of amazing shows and they are offering all those to you. But if you’ve been watching them for a long time the new content is actually very little. There’s a wide variety but very few episodes.
Great concept, needs a lot of work. 3/5
Seems like this streaming service has a lot of content but there are missing episodes or seasons. But the service seems unfinished or in like it’s in beta. I’m not sure I will go past the 7 day trial.
Some issues I’ve had with the service so far is the closed captioning, it’s so big it blocks most the show. It also shows up in a big black box.
Another issue I’ve ran into is when I’m fast forwarding or rewinding, I can not see which scene I’m stopping at so I have to guess where to stop.
Loading into the show it’s very blurry and slowly the show will show up in HD.
I initially downloaded the app because I heard they had pretty much all the episodes of Ghost adventures but I’ve noticed that a lot of episodes are missing and the seasons are not in order at all.
Please fix these issues.
Does not work 1/5
After 7 day trial, the app only thing I can watch is the app tell me ai have an “inactive subscription” which I do not. I’ve restored purchases, deleted and downloaded app several times and checked my subscription on multiple occasions. Finally I just deleted it for good.
Absolutely love all the material loaded on discovery +
Picture in Picture? 4/5
I love this app! But why is there no picture and picture option available! I would really like to watch my show while I’m reading my emails and working on other tasks!
But otherwise 5 stars all the was and once Picture in Picture is added I will change my review 😍
