Discovery+ Is Finally Coming To Roku Streaming Devices

Discovery+, the streaming subscription service that focuses on lifestyle, nature, true crime and sports (with its Eurosport platform), is expanding its device support this week with an app for Roku’s streaming devices.

Discovery+, which launched late last year, replaced Discovery’s Dplay streaming service (which used to be totally free), with a combined offering of both free and “premium” channels.

At launch, Sky Q customers were among the few who could watch Discovery+ on their tellies, along with apps for mobile phones and PCs.

Later on, Amazon Fire TV and Samsung TVs support was added, and this week – it’s Roku’s turn.

The free tier on Discovery+ includes several Freeview channels, such as Quest, Really, HGTV and others – with some of their content also being available to stream on-demand.

The paid tier adds several additional “live” premium channels, along with their on-demand content – Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC and more.

The content features global franchises like Gold RushGhost Adventures, 90 Day Fiancé, and discovery+ Originals such as Anni: The Honeymoon Murder, The Baby Killer Conspiracy, Richard Hammond’s Workshop and The Men Who Sold The World Cup.

And, as we reported last week, Discovery+ also included a sports option – it replaces Eurosport Player, which used to be a standalone platform for sports channels.

Therefore, the paid tier has TWO separate plans: Entertainment (£4.99/month) and Entertainment + Sports (£6.99/month) – which now also includes the content that used to reside on Eurosport Player.

Roku customers can sign up for either plan either via the Discovery+ website, or directly on their Roku device. 

Roku sells a number of popular streaming devices in the UK, from the low-cost Roku Express to the Roku Streambar, which is a soundbar with a streaming component built-in:

Roku users in the UK can already find the app in their Roku Channel Store, and can add it to their device either via the website, or directly on their device.
