Discovery Plus is the hottest streaming service since the launch of the last streaming service. And if you're asking yourself if you can watch Discovery Plus on Amazon Fire TV, well... the answer is yes. Fire TV devices, from the super popular Amazon Fire sticks to cubes, are all set up to watch Discovery Plus.

That isn't always a foregone conclusion. We've seen bigger services than Discovery Plus go live without being available on the popular streaming devices. And so it's also worth noting that you can also watch Discovery Plus on Roku devices. (Roku has run into similar issues.)

Anyway. Discovery Plus's availability on Amazon Fire devices includes the device that's most popular — the Fire TV Stick 4K, as well the Fire TV Stick and the Stick Lite.  You can also watch on Amazon's Fire TVs, which use Amazon Fire TV as their operating system.

Now, let's take a look at how you can set up Discovery Plus on Amazon Fire TV.

How to set up Discovery Plus on Amazon Fire TV

Installing Discovery Plus on Amazon Fire TV is simple. Here's how to do it from the Fire TV device itself.

  1. Using your Fire TV remote, hold down the microphone button and say "Discovery Plus."
  2. Select the "Discovery + | Stream TV Shows" app in the listings.
  3. Now select "Get App."

Told you it was easy. After that you'll need to create a login using your email address and a new password. (Don't even think about reusing an old password.)

It's also possible to install the Discovery Plus app on your Fire TV from a web browser. Here's how to do that:

  1. Go to the Amazon Appstore page for Discovery Plus (opens in new tab).
  2. On the right-hand side, select the device you want to install it on
  3. Click "Get app."

Again, the same login process follows after that. You'll need to set up an email and password and then you can sign in.

The Discovery Plus price is $4.99 a month if you don't mind advertising and $6.99 a month if you want to the ad-free experience. Once you pay up, you'll have access to more than 55,000 episodes from some of your favorite Discovery network shows, as well as all the exclusive Discovery Plus original content.
