Re: Discovery + streaming service - Coming January 4, 2021

I signed up for a free week. I like what I've sampled so far. Race around the world thanks to DJariya, The Maureen McCormick reno show is fun and the Bobby Giada in Italy is a nice watch. I don't have the unlimited plan with Verizon, so will have to pony up for this, but I think I will. There is a lot of content I enjoy as I like Food and HGTV, but have given those a rest for a year so ready to jump back in...

I hope my wife doesn't find out about this because it will be all she will watch.

Be aware there is stuff that isn't on here. Discovery did a deal with Hulu previously so they have a ton of content. No word on when that deal runs out, but you can assume that stuff will shift over here.

Discovery is really being quite annoying with the Discovery+ push. If you watch any of their shows on regular cable channels there’s a constant watermark advertising it, plus pretty much every break there’s at least one commercial for it.

It's only 6 episodes, but each one is about 59 minutes, so it's a lot of viewing.
First series is great. Second series not so much IMO. I didn't like any of the teams.

Decided to go ahead and get this when it debuted. Like having all these shows in one place, been going back and re-watching some Mythbusters, Restaurant Impossible and a few Investigation Discovery shows. Also checked out Mysterious Planet hosted by David Schwimmer.

I've been watching this almost every day since I sampled it, will be keeping for at least a year. I think it's a great comfort TV streaming app. I like the Marcia Brady reno Show, Race Around the World, Bobby and Giada in Italy and checking out some HGTV shows I have not sampled before like Restored
