Discovery joins the list of companies that will offer streaming content, proof of the continued success of companies like Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime. It is undeniable that the way we consume television has changed forever.
The new platform will be called discovery + and will offer the most varied content.
When will Discovery + be available?
The platform is available in the United States from January 4, but it will take a little longer to enjoy the service in Europe or other Spanish speaking countries.
The company has already confirmed that it will be promoting its international opening from the spring of that same 2021, so we will surely have to wait sooner than expected.
Discovery + can be seen in up to 25 different countries including Europe, Italy, Poland, Sweden and Norway, among others.
If you are very interested in being able to take advantage of the service now, maybe you can download a VPN and change your IP address to the United States so that it looks like you are connecting to the internet from that country.
However, we recommend that you wait a few months so that you do not have to ignore the terms and conditions of using the service.

What can we see on Discovery +?
The platform will divide its content into several categories, Discovery said it wants to position itself as “the home of real life entertainment”. There will be sections with adventure, paranormal, documentary, science, religion or nature content, among others.
In total, there will be up to 9,000 hours to watch content, which means up to 600 titles which will surely be expanded as Discovery adds new series and movies to its catalog.
Additionally, like other platforms such as Netflix, Discovery will produce exclusive content.
You will find titles such as The Gold Rush, My Life with 300 kilos, Highway Control, The Doctor Lee or Wild Frank.
How much will Discovery + cost?
Although the price in dollars has not yet been confirmed, we do know that in the US it has a base price of $ 4.99 per month. This price gets you access to all the content you want, but you’ll have to see the ad occasionally.
If you pay the fee of $ 6.99 per month, you will have the benefit of not having to see any advertising on the platform.
We are assuming that the price in Euros will be the same or at least similar, so this is a price that is what we might expect if we take a look at other similar services from other brands.
