Re: Discovery + streaming service

My 1 year $59 promo expired last week. For the time being, I'm not going to renew. Also, Discovery has no option for a year long plan. I like the service, but I haven't used it much recently and I only have so many services I can watch in one week. I'm going to wait and see if another promo comes again later this year. I watch it mostly for the food and travel shows.

$59 was a sweet spot for me for this type of service. It's just getting too expensive to hang on to too many services at regular price.

They offered me $2.99/month and even then, I am not interested. I did like a few of the exclusive cooking shows, but not enough to subscribe

Update

So shortly after I let my subscription expire, Discovery sent me a deal via email. $59 for 1-year like before and they will also throw in a free Amazon Fire TV stick.

Looks like I'll be re-upping soon.

Re-signed up today for 1-year/$59. Once you re-sign up, they email you an Amazon promo code so you can get the Amazon Fire Stick Lite, which is $30 retail. I don't really need the Fire Stick Lite as I have a Fire Stick 4K already, but I can give it as a gift to someone.

Overall, it's worth it. I'm getting $114 value of stuff for only $59. I do watch Discovery + once in a while for food and travel shows, so it will be worth it to me.

My subscription expired yesterday, I'd be interested if they offered me the $59 promotion. Nothing yet so far.

Never got that sort of offer.

But decided to go with the ad-free version for $6.99/mo. since I'm not renewing Paramount+ (still have a few days left, might try watching Infinite before my subscription expires) and I'm not paying for any other streaming service (wouldn't mind trying Netflix, but that price is way too much).

Re: Discovery + streaming service

Are there still plans to merge HBO Max with Discovery Plus? This was a rumor last year, but I haven't heard about it in a while.

Re: Discovery + streaming service

​​​​​​I mean if the bundle goes up in price like a buck, I wouldn't mind. If it adds the entire cost of Discovery+ to HBO Max, I would be pissed.

Re: Discovery + streaming service

So playing with different apps and configurations to lower my bills…and testing out Discovery+

So someone please correct me if I’m wrong…but as far as I can see House Hunters & International are months behind?? What sense does that make?

It’s a weird app, some of the Food Network shows are whole seasons behind. I only subscribe to it so people in my family can use it. I just watch current episodes and seasons on YouTube TV.
