Discovery+ Streaming To Be Unavailable In The Philippines Soon

Discovery+ Streaming To Be Unavailable In The Philippines Soon

Last year, we did a comprehensive list of streaming services worth subscribing to in the country. Among them was Discovery+ which was one of the cheapest in the Philippines. Sadly, it seems that the service will be gone from the country at the end of next month. Here’s what you need to know.

For those who aren’t too knowledgeable about what the platform provides, Discovery+ in the Philippines is responsible for the streaming of shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race, Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, MasterChef, Shark Tank, and a vast library of documentaries and specials. The content mainly circulates around stuff produced by the group comprising of Animal Planet, BBC, TLC, HGTV, Discovery, and more.

It’s a gold mine for those who love this kind of entertainment and it was also offered at an extremely competitive price of PHP 129/month, or even PHP 999/annually. When you consider that those monthly fees are nearly a third of what you pay for Netflix, it’s a steal.

Sadly, this graphic began spreading all over Facebook which indicates the end of Discovery+ services in the Philippines. It appears that all those with yearly subscriptions will be reimbursed to minimize the negative impact of this act, but many are still grieving over its departure. The message clearly indicates HBO Go as an alternative – although that is more expensive at PHP 199 and is technically inferior to HBO Max which isn’t available locally.

We have not been informed as to what the “exclusive offer” at the end is all about, but we’ll get back to you once we have more news.
