Warner Bros. Discovery and DirecTV announced that Discovery+ is now available on DirecTV.

DirecTV and DirecTV Stream subscribers will have access to the non-fiction subscription subscription channel, which includes the full and comprehensive library of 70,000+ episodes of original series and library content from the Warner Bros. Discovery portfolio of networks — including unscripted content from HGTV, Food Network, TLC, ID, OWN, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Magnolia Network.

Programming on Discovery+ will include the Holiday Central Hub titles like Designing Christmas, The Santa Squad, and A Christmas Open House featuring Food Network and HGTV stars Ben and Erin Napier, Bobby Flay, Duff Goldman and Hillary Farr, as well as the new dating series Written in the Stars and the CNN Original Series Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy.


“DirecTV always strives to offer the content our customers want most, wherever, whenever, and using whatever device – but also at a strong value they can really appreciate,” said Rob Thun, DirecTV Chief Content Officer in a statement. “As more of our customers gain interest in top streaming services, and we add streaming services from programmers like Warner Bros. Discovery whose linear channels we also offer, we can help our programming partners expand their reach while also offering our customers similar preferred discounts.”

DirecTV users can subscribe to Discovery+ and receive a $2 monthly discount on their DirecTV or DirecTV Stream service. They can purchase the ad-lite tier for $4.99 per month. They can access Discovery+ through their usual DirecTV or streaming interface.
