Why Discovery+?

Discovery Plus is available on most streaming devices and is the go-to platform for fans of shows like Fixer Upper, Ghost Adventures and 1000-lb Sisters. It's also the exclusive home of Food Network faves like Good Eats The Return and TLC's reality-show hit 90 Day Fiancé — as well as all the drama-filled spinoffs.

The streaming platform currently offers two subscription tiers. For $5 per month, subscribers have access to all content on the platform with limited ad support. For $7 per month, you'll get an ad-free version. Verizon is also currently offering a promotion to select customers for 12 months of the ad-free service for free.

If you're left unimpressed by Discovery Plus, no worries! You can choose to cancel your subscription at any time during or after the seven-day free trial. You can also upgrade or downgrade your plan at anytime.
