Save $83.88: Most Verizon Unlimited customers and Verizon users with a Fios Home plan can get a year of Discovery+ for free, a savings of $6.99 per month. Discovery+ itself is also offering 30% off ad-free gift subscriptions as of Feb. 2.
Maybe that’s a stretch, but also… is it?
Discovery+, which launched on January 4, 2021, is about to save us during quarantine season two:
We’re bored of the hobbies we began last spring and summer. We’re over the initial comfort of no plans or commutes to work. Frankly, we’re just tired. The glorious mishmash of lifestyle, true crime, home improvement, food, and adventure could be the real-life entertainment we need to get excited about things again. Content from HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, A&E, Cooking Channel, and DIY Network makes up over 55,000 episodes currently on the streaming service, with new ones added daily.
One of the streaming service’s major steals is the BBC’s award-winning natural history collection. David Attenborough stans will gain access to Planet Earth II, Blue Planet II, and Frozen Planet (all three beloved nature docs were taken off of Netflix in 2019), as well as Serengeti, a series narrated by John Boyega.
TLC and HGTV fans get near-unlimited access to classics like 90-Day Fiancé, House Hunters, Say Yes to the Dress, and Home Town, as well as a preview for the Magnolia Network: the upcoming lifestyle channel from Fixer Upper‘s Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Verizon’s “a year on us” offer covers the $6.99 per month ad-free plan. To claim the offer, you’ll have to be a customer of one of the following plans: Fios Home, Fios 5G Home, Verizon Unlimited, Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, Above Unlimited (yes, we’re still going), Get More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, and Start Unlimited. Once one of those boxes is checked, simply link your account to get access to your free subscription. Verizon will check in when the year is almost up.
Not a Verizon customer? Discovery+ itself is offering 30% off ad-free gift subscriptions: Send a year to your curious-minded loved one for $59 or six months for $29. It’s a genius digital gift that doesn’t involve messing with delayed shipping.
As of Feb. 2, there are no discounts that we know of on the $4.99 per month tier (with ads).
