TL;DR: In a wide ocean of streaming services that have been launched in the last few years, Discovery is partnering with Verizon to launch its own. Whether or not there is enough demand for such a service which includes a paid ad-supported tier, only time will tell. Discovery today announced it will launch a new streaming service called discovery+ on January 4, 2021. The network that owns channels like Discovery, Animal Planet, Science Channel, TLC, Food Network, and HGTV is betting big that there is demand for its content through an all-you-can-eat interface.

There will also be an ad-free tier of discovery+, and that will reportedly be priced at $6.99.
