What are Discovery Plus Download Limits & How to Get Unlimited Discovery+ Videos
Zaslav plans to combine Discovery+ and HBO Max into a single product starting in the spring of 2023. However, Discovery+ will remain available as a standalone service. Since December, 2022, Discovery+ announced that users of the ad-free plan in the U.S. will be able to download content for offline viewing on the service’s iOS and Android apps. Users with the ad-free plan will see a “Download” button next to the content title available, living in a “Downloads” page that provides easy access from navigation. They can also choose the quality of the download and whether to download it over Wi-Fi or cellular data.
Please note that once you have downloaded these videos, you are not free to do whatever you want with them, nor are you free to play them offline whenever you want to watch them. There are many restrictions when you download the videos through the app, as follows.
Limits of the device system version
To download shows and videos from discovery+, you need to be a current, active subscriber with the ad-free subscription plan. You also must have the latest version of the discovery+ app on one of these devices: iPhone, iPad running iOS 13 or later. Android phone or tablet running Android 5.1 or later.
Limits on the number of simultaneous plays
You can use Discovery Plus on up to four devices simultaneously. Devices can be any combination of computers, smartphones, tablets, streaming devices (Roku and Amazon Fire TV), smart TVs, and gaming consoles.
Limits on the validity of downloaded videos
The downloaded title will live on the device for 30 days in the unplayed state or 48 hours after you hit the play button. Plus, you can renew the title download once you're online after it expires.
How to Get Unlimited Discovery+ Videos
Discovery+ is not putting any geo-restriction on the downloaded content. So if you are visiting another country, you can watch it if you are offline. The app will default to the downloads section when a user is offline. However once you cancel your Discovery subscription, your downloaded videos still won't play.
