However, it is worth noting that it will not be possible to watch the channels live – they are still restricted to pay TV customers.

You’ll be able to search by channel, browse content types – family, relationships, science and technology, psychic and mystery, etc. – or follow the recommendations chosen by Discovery+.

Among the main titles, Discovery+ includes the franchise Brothers to the Work, which feature construction realities presented by twin brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott.

By the way, what is not lacking in Discovery’s catalog are realities of construction and decoration, such as of new house, Total Makeover with Nate and Jeremiah, Restoring Homes with Dave and Jenny e Family Reform with Karen and Mina, I owe you this! (including a Brazilian version) and Love It or Leave It: Vancouver.

In terms of food realities, there are classics such as Cake Boss, MasterChef from different countries, Battle of the Cupcakes, Battle of the Worst Cooks, Iron Chef e A Chef’s Day.

In addition Discovery+ will also have other types of programs such as cheapskates (I love), Cupomania, The Busbys + 5, The Ideal Dress, My Big Gypsy Wedding, Mountain Vets, The Irwin Family e Dropped and peeled – the latter with a Brazilian version.

We still have the children’s content from Discovery Kids, such as Peppa Pig, The Moon Show e Mini Beat Power Rockets; more exclusive Brazilian series for streaming like Bada Bean e Curiozoo World.

Discovery+ can be subscribed directly through the website, with 7 days free for you to try. There is a 25% discount promotion for those who purchase the annual plan until December 8th; plus a combo with Globoplay.

These are the plans:

Plano Price
Monthly BRL 21.90 per month
Annual – 12 installments of R$ 16.24 for those who sign up to December 8, 2021 (total of R$ 194.88 per year)
– 12 installments of BRL 18.90 after this date (total of BRL 226.80 per year)
Globoplay + Discovery+ BRL 34.90 per month

It will also be possible to sign a Globoplay combo with Discovery+, but prices have not yet been announced.

Is it worth subscribing to Discovery+?

We have one more streaming service, which means it’s another monthly expense. However, Discovery+ may be an alternative for some people who want to cancel traditional cable TV but insist on the programmer’s content.

If you subscribe to a pay TV service, hiring Discovery+ doesn’t seem like a good deal: the operator’s plan probably already includes much of the programmer’s content on their respective video-on-demand platforms, such as Claro NOW, Vivo Play, Oi Play and DirecTV Go.

Discovery+’s arrival was delayed: the service already exists in the United States, and Latin American countries were scheduled to launch in September 2021. In May, the merger of the group with WarnerMedia was announced; the merger is expected to be completed by mid-2022 and is expected to intensify competition with Netflix and Disney+.
