I want to download and subscribe to the new Discovery+ app, but its not showing up on my Samsung Series 8 app dashboard. Intense googling says it should be there. I've tried rebooting. Any ideas when it will show up or if I need to do something to get it on my tv?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Discovery+ is available for most smartphone, tablet, and desktop browsers, Samsung Smart TVs from 2017, and newer and most connected devices. Please visit https://www.discoveryplus.com/ to find out more about all the ways to stream discovery+.
For instructions on how to download Discovery+ to your Samsung TV please see the link below.
**Please note, only apps available in the App Store can be installed on the smart TV.**
If you are able to download the app from the App Store but the app is freezing, not loading, or crashing, you should see the link below for instructions on rebooting the TV and resetting the Smart Hub.
If you are still having an issue with the app after completing the Smart Hub reset, and you made sure that the unit is up to date please reach out to the app developer to see if they are aware of the issue. Many times a fix is likely to be available soon.
The Discovery Plus app is Not available on the Playstation store yet, as of 1/06/21.
I'm also not able to find it on my Samsung TV's smart hub, both on the splash screen or search.
It is showing on my TV but everytime I go in to register it wants an activation code. I have gotten two diferent responses from Discovery that do not work. One was go to my Samsung account to get the code, the second one was to to the discovery+.com/Samsung to ge the code - neither worked. I have given up and canceled my subscription. I don't want to watch it on my computer, phone or IPad.
I understand that Discovery plus will be rolling out on other platforms but what about being able to download to my 6 series 2016 Samsung TV other than Chromecast? Will this ever become possible? I am willing to wait if it will at some point work with my TVs. There is no way I'm replacing a 5 yr old perfectly good TV. Very disappointed.
