Discovery Plus is a streaming service that launched in the US in 2021 and has been slowly rolling out around the world— it's now owned by WarnerBros Discovery, so we're waiting to hear how the merger of the heavyweight media companies might impact on the streaming platform. Watch this space!

It's home to all the Discovery-owned shows that you know and love, and expands further to include programming from HGTV, Food Network and TLC.

In addition to more than 55,000 episodes across some 2,500 shows, it's also the home to a number of exclusives from some of your favorite Discovery personalities, like Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Network.

Here's everything you need to know about Discovery Plus, including the different plans, which countries it's available in and the Discovery Plus price.

In the United States, Discovery Plus has a very simple offering. Plans start at $4.99 a month. That's for the Ad-Lite plan which includes advertising. The no-ads subscription costs $6.99 a month.

In the UK, the easiest way to get your fix of all the programming Discovery has on offer is to get Discovery Plus on Prime Video Channels. It costs £4.99 per month for the Entertainment package and £6.99 per month for the Entertainment plus Sport plan
