Is Discovery Plus on Roku? That's a fair question given that several high-profile streaming services were left off the Roku platform when it first launched. But that's slowly been resolved and Discovery Plus is now most definitely available on Roku platforms — including the Roku player and Roku TV.

Discovery Plus is the prime destination for lovers of reality and lifestyle TV — whether it's 90 Day Fiancé, Married at First Sight or House Hunters — whatever your guilty pleasure there's something for you. The streaming service encompasses brands that make up the Discovery family of channels, including HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, OWN, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the Magnolia Network.

There also are a number of exclusive Discovery Plus originals, with more on the way every year.

The Discovery Plus price is $4.99 a month for the service with ads and $6.99 a month for the ad-free plan. There is also a seven-day Discovery Plus free trial with both subscriptions, so you can check out exactly what's on offer before you sign up.

If you're keen to get started, here's how to sign up for Discovery Plus on Roku:

  1. First install the channel. You can search for "Discovery Plus" in the Roku Channel store. Or an even easier way is to visit the Discovery Plus Roku channel web page and install it from there.
  2. Fill in your email address and create a password.
  3. Give Discovery Plus your billing information.
  4. Watch all the Discovery content you want.

It's that simple.

Once you're signed up and signed in you'll have access to everything streaming on Discovery Plus. That includes the on-demand content from all your favorite shows, as well as all the exclusive content. There are more 55,000 episodes available on demand, as well as more than 50 original titles and more than 1,000 hours of original content.

In addition to Roku, Discovery Plus also is available on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS and Android Xbox and watch via web browsers.
