THE LAUNCH OF DISCOVERY+

DISCOVERY ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF DISCOVERY+ on a GLOBAL SCALE!

DEBUTING JANUARY 4, 2021

THE DEFINITIVE STREAMING SERVICE FOR THE BEST LIFE ENTERTAINMENT IN THE WORLD

With the great Streaming Wars, another contender has entered the ring. Discovery+, which falls under the Discovery INC umbrella, Discovery+ would include their already amazing diverse portfolio of networks such as TLC, History, HGTV, The Food Network and many more.

Discovery+ will make its debut in the United States on January 4, 2021, for $4.99 per month. The newly announced streamer plans to launch  globally in 2021, starting with the U.K. and Ireland, India, the Nordics, Italy, and the Netherlands.

David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery, revealed Wednesday that the streaming platform will be home to more than 55,000 episodes and more original series at launch than any other SVOD service to date. One of the key aspects to take away from Zaslav’s presentation is that discovery+ will focus its attention on unscripted television, unlike Disney+, Netflix, Amazon, and HBO Max, which also offer scripted series as well.
