The new streaming service Discovery+ launches today in the UK, replacing the current dplay streaming service. According to the company, Discovery+ is launching with more than two dozen originals and an overall 17,000 hours of content. That would make it the third largest SVOD platform in the UK for content.
Beginning on November 19th, SkyQ customers will be able to access Discovery+ for 12 months at no cost.
Original shows available at launch include Faking It: Jimmy Savile and Prince Andrew, Maxwell & Epstein, and Salvage Hunters: Design Classics. The service also ordered Donald Trump: A Faking It Special and the series Four Men Four Wheels, both of which will be available in December.
"The launch of our streaming service Discovery+ is a milestone moment for Discovery UK and marks a new era as we bring our premium brands and content together under one roof for the first time," said James Gibbons, executive vice-president, general manager UK & Nordics.
