Discovery’s non-scripted streaming service discovery+ is now available on LG Smart TVs in the US.
The streamer, which features more than 60,000 episodes from brands such as HGTV, Animal Planet and TLC, can be accessed on the TV’s webOS platform by opening the discovery+ app using their remote or by saying “discovery plus” directly into their LG Magic Remote.
discovery+ is available in the U.S. starting at US$4.99 per month, with an ad-free version available for US$6.99 per month.
The launch on LG coincides with a themed block of programming on discovery+ dubbed ‘Ghostober’, with the streamer premiering new content such as Jack and Kelly Osbourne: Night of Terror and Eli Roth Presents: A Ghost Ruined My Life.
Gabriel Sauerhoff, SVP, Digital Distribution & Commercial Partnerships, Discovery, said: “We are thrilled to expand the availability of discovery+ and provide LG customers a direct and easy way to stream our much-loved brands, series and talent. The announcement of discovery+ on LG Smart TVs builds upon our existing relationship with a valued partner, and we look forward to the continued growth of discovery+ and reaching more fans around the world.”
Peggy Ang, LG’s vice president of marketing, said: “The arrival of the discovery+ app on LG Smart TVs delivers a new range of premium, educational and inspiring content to LG TV owners. LG Smart TVs truly elevate the home entertainment experience with access to the most anticipated and sought-after content delivered with critically-acclaimed picture quality the way the creators intended it to be seen. We are proud to partner with discovery+ to bring this content to LG TV owners.”
