Discovery announced today that its streaming service Discovery+ is now available through Amazon Prime Video Channels. The service launched in January and was available on Fire TV devices at launch. Now, Prime members can subscribe directly through Amazon, eliminating the need for an extra app and making content easier to find through the Prime Video interface.
“Today’s launch on Amazon Prime Video Channels expands access to discovery+ for millions of Amazon customers beyond Fire TV streaming devices and Fire TV Edition Smart TVs,” said Gabriel Sauerhoff, SVP, Digital Distribution and Commercial Partnerships at Discovery, Inc. “This innovative relationship provides multiple, compelling ways for us to reach and delight consumers with a truly differentiated streaming experience through discovery+.”
Prime members can subscribe to the ad-free version of Discovery+ through Prime Video Channels for $6.99/month. The ad-supported version will be available in the coming months.
On the channel, subscribers will find content from across Discovery’s portfolio of brands including HGTV, Food Network, TLC, ID, OWN, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and the upcoming Magnolia Network. The lineup includes past seasons, current seasons, and original content.
“Adding discovery+ and its exciting roster of top brands reinforces Prime Video Channels’ promise of bringing the best shows to our customers, all in one place,” said Soumya Sriraman, Head of Prime Video Channels. “With a discovery+ channel subscription, Prime members now have even more ways to access content they love directly on Prime Video including shows such as Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Bobby and Giada in Italy.”
