Comcast is including one more streaming service to its Xfinity Flex and X1 set-top boxes. Discovery+ is now out there on the streaming-only Flex platform and it will arrive on X1 boxes in the coming weeks. A subscription to Discovery+ prices $5/month, or $7/month for the ad-free plan.
Along with dozens of originals, Discovery+ has greater than 55,000 episodes from throughout Discovery’s portfolio of networks. It contains BBC pure historical past initiatives and non-fiction content material from A&E, The History Channel and Lifetime.
Also now on Flex and coming to X1 quickly are a few different subscription-based Discovery apps. Food Network Kitchen contains recipes, educational movies and cooking lessons with Food Network personalities. MotorTrend, in the meantime, is targeted on automotive leisure.
It’s not precisely stunning that Comcast has added Discovery+. Xfinity Flex and X1 subscribers have entry to a boatload of different streaming apps by their set-top boxes. They embody Comcast’s personal Peacock, , Netflix, , , Amazon Prime Video, , Amazon Music, YouTube, Vudu and Pandora.
Subscribing to all of these providers on prime of getting a cable plan would in all probability be extreme. Still, framing Flex and X1 as handy hubs for each cable and streaming providers is a wise transfer.
