Amazon Prime members get a plethora of benefits, from free two-day shipping to discounts and access to Amazon Video and Music. But what about Discovery Plus, the streaming service from Discovery? Is it free with Amazon Prime?
The short answer is no, Discovery Plus is not included in your Amazon Prime subscription. However, there are ways for Prime members to get discounted access to Discovery Plus.
Discovery Plus provides subscribers with access to thousands of documentaries, shows, and movies from Discovery networks such as Animal Planet, HGTV, Food Network and TLC. The service also includes content from A&E Networks, BBC Studios and other international networks.
Amazon Prime members can subscribe to the service directly through their Amazon account. At the time of writing, the cost is $4.99 a month or $49.99 per year. That’s slightly cheaper than the regular price of $6.99 a month or $69.
If you don’t want to pay for a subscription outright you can also sign up for one through Amazon Channels which allows you to add individual networks à la carte. With this option you will only be charged for the channels you select so you can save some money if you don’t want all of Discovery’s content.
In conclusion, while Discovery Plus is not included with an Amazon Prime subscription it is available for purchase directly through an Amazon account or via Amazon Channels at discounted rates for Prime members.
