With new OTT platforms being launched one after the other, it comes as no surprise that Discovery Inc. has followed suit. Its new streaming service, Discovery Plus, which launched on 4th January, features over 2,500 shows from HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Animal Planet, and originals from other production companies. While anyone is eligible for a free 7-day trial, Verizon users can get a free 12-month subscription.
Users can access the free Discovery Plus subscription from the My Verizon app by going to the Add-ons & Apps section and selecting “Discovery Plus” under Entertainment.
Here’s how Verizon subscribers can get a free Discovery Plus subscription:
- Get More Unlimited or Play More Unlimited
Verizon customers who have opted for the Play More Unlimited or Get More Unlimited service are eligible for a free 12-month Discovery Plus subscription. Both plans come with 5G total access, 5G Ultra-Wideband, 5G Nationwide, free access to the Disney bundle and Apple Music, and a 12-month free subscription to Discovery Plus. Play More Unlimited offers a 6-month free Apple Music subscription as opposed to the one-year free subscription available on Get More Unlimited. These services cost anywhere between $45 and $55.
- Start Unlimited or Do More Unlimited
Similarly, those who want a 6-month free Discovery Plus subscription can opt for either the Start Unlimited or the Do More Unlimited plan. The Start Unlimited plan costs $35 and offers unlimited talk and text, 6-month free Disney+ and Apple Music, and Discovery Plus subscriptions. The Do More Unlimited plan costs $45 and offers 5G total access, 5G Ultra-Wideband, 5G Nationwide, and 4G LTE data. It comes with a 6-month subscription for Disney+, Apple Music, and Discovery Plus. It also includes 600GB of Verizon Cloud storage and 50% off on unlimited connected device plans.
- New Verizon Fios or 5G Home Internet Connection
New Verizon customers who have Fios or 5G Home Internet Connection are eligible for a one-year free Discovery Plus subscription. This means that existing subscribers or those with a Verizon business account are not eligible for this offer. The cost of Fios Internet is between $39 and $80 per month, depending on the plan one chooses.
