Being in talks is one thing.  Coming to agreement is another.  These are business decisions with both sides trying to maximize their deal.

But note that Roku does not create the channel apps, the channel owners do.  Roku just provides the platform on which they run.  Discovery Plus won't be on Roku until Discovery supplies the app.

Re: Please add Discovery Plus

Discovery Plus is available on the Amazon Firestick in India where they started this past summer, so I feel confident that Roku will come to an agreement with them.  However, if they don't, Amazon probably will, since they are already rollin' in India.  I like my Roku better, but was able to find the latest firestick for only $20 on Prime Day this year.  There are a few apps I get on the stick that I can't find on Roku.  Discovery Plus might be one of them.  Probably great deals on these now before Christmas.

I get that. I am saying please come to an agreement. If you come to an agreement they will provide the app.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get the Science channel? The cost without adverts is under 10$ a month, it offers an extensive list of stations. There are so many advantages to adding this tile.

I know the customer is the last thing considered in any business negotiation, you owe me nothing. But if I don't ask you can't say yes!

Thank you sincerely tho, for noticing the post at all. That in itself is refreshing. 

Stay safe, have a lovely month.

Discovery+ has most of the shows that I watch currently on Cable.  I would like to slowly go to streaming and Discovery+ is a must to have. I looked at their prices and It is something I can afford.  PLEASE do all that you can to obtain this channel for your customers. Thank you. LHo
