Discovery Plus Joins Streaming Price Hike Trend, Subscribers to See 25% Increase
As Streaming Services Raise Prices, the Value Proposition Comes into Question
It’s become a familiar trend in the world of streaming services, and Discovery Plus is the latest player to join the price hike party. As part of Max, Discovery Plus is preparing to implement its first-ever price increase. Subscribers of the ad-free tier, currently priced at $6.99 per month, will see their monthly bill rise by two dollars to $8.99 plus tax. If you’re already a subscriber, you can expect this increase to take effect during your next billing cycle, starting on or after November 2.
There’s a small silver lining in this cloud, though – Discovery Plus’s ad-supported tier remains unaffected, staying at a monthly cost of $4.99. This is a relief, especially when considering that rumors of global price hikes by Netflix are on the horizon.
