The discovery+ subscription streaming service is now available on Prime Video Channels in the U.S., bringing with it such shows as Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Guy’s Grocery Games and Bobby and Giada in Italy. 

discovery+ launched in the U.S. in January on most devices and services, including Amazon Fire TV streaming devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs. Now, the ad-free version of discovery+ is available on Prime Video Channels for $6.99 per month and the ad-supported version of the service will be available in the coming months.

“Today’s launch on Amazon Prime Video Channels expands access to discovery+ for millions of Amazon customers beyond Fire TV streaming devices and Fire TV Edition Smart TVs,” said Gabriel Sauerhoff, senior VP of digital distribution and commercial partnerships at Discovery, Inc. “This innovative relationship provides multiple compelling ways for us to reach and delight consumers with a truly differentiated streaming experience through discovery+.”

“Adding discovery+ and its exciting roster of top brands reinforces Prime Video Channels’ promise of bringing the best shows to our customers, all in one place,” said Soumya Sriraman, head of Prime Video Channels. “With a discovery+ channel subscription, Prime members now have even more ways to access content they love directly on Prime Video, including shows such as Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines, Guy’s Grocery Games and Bobby and Giada in Italy.”
