website was live and accepting signups/logins 11 minutes after midnight, android/ios 12 minutes after midnight.

 

give them time, they(roku) probably have to flip a switch to make it visible in the channel store, cause there's no way the discovery+ team doesnt have an app ready ahead of service launch.

murphey's law: anything and everything that could go wrong can and probably will.

@XRaiderV18 "cause there's no way the discovery+ team doesnt have an app ready ahead of service launch."

How do you know this? Are you actually privvy to any such info?

What is wrong with you people? Does it need to be available to you immediately? Why?

I stayed up until 4AM waiting for Discovery Plus to show up on my Roku TV. I'm so very disappointed.

I added the discovery plus channel from channelstore.roku.com but it is not showing up on my TV. Not sure how to solve this issue. Does anyone know a solution for this problem?

You can add anything you find online via the Roku Channel Store web page to your Roku account. A channel will only download from your account to a supported device, however.

What model Roku are you using?  (Settings, System, About)

I can't yet find any info specifically on which Roku models Discovery wrote their Discovery+ app to support, it's probably too soon, but here's what Discovery Go says it supports:

  • Roku
    • Roku 3
    • Roku Ultra
    • Roku Express
    • Roku Stick
    • Roku Stick+
    • Roku TV
      • All operating system version are supported
  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi - JVC EM37T
  • TCL Roku TV 43S425/C107X, Ser X000001R60KV, wifi

I am all set thank you. Just received email from Roku and now I am streaming Discovery plus channel.  I unplugged my TV then plugged it back in, not sure if that did something like a reset.
