We cut the cord to cable quite some time ago, so when we do our television watching it’s on Netflix or Disney+. A couple months ago, we decided to upgrade our TV watching and signed up for a Discovery+ subscription and I LOVE IT!
For Discovery+, you have two subscription options. You can do the regular unlimited access for $4.99 a month, which has commercials. OR, you can do the Ad-Free version for $6.99 a month. We got the ad-free version and it is worth every extra penny to avoid the advertisements.
We’ve gotten in the habit of sitting down for a show as a family after dinner, which is such a nice way to end the day. According to the Discovery+ website, there are more than 55,000 episodes of 2,500 current and classic shows from HGTV, Food Network, TLC, ID, Animal Planet and Discovery Channel.
Home Town: We love Ben and Erin Napier and I think we’re almost through season 3 of this show. They take an old home, rip it apart and rebuild it into something wonderful. All three of us watch this and we love how they really make each house a home for their client. Also, I would very much love to spend a day in Ben’s shop watching him make one of his wood creations!
Guy’s Grocery Games: We had never heard of this show before clicking around for something new one night, but it has 24 seasons… so it’s been around for a while! It’s a reality(ish) cooking show which takes place in a Grocery Store set — so it’s kind of like a mix of Supermarket Sweep and a cooking contest. This is the perfect game for people who like to heckle the tv (um… me, absolutely) and Jack likes it too!
Dirty Jobs: We clicked on this one night thinking that maybe Jack would be interested in it, and it reminded me how much I love Mike Rowe! So far, we’ve watched him poke a stick into volcano lava, make cheese in a huge basin, and clean up after the animals at a zoo. It’s pretty great family TV!
How It’s Made: I didn’t realize this show was still out there, so I was thrilled to see it on Discovery+. I’m a collector of random knowledge and Jack is totally following in my footsteps. While I’m certainly not against dumb tv that is just there to entertain you, I don’t mind a show that is a fun way to learn too!
Do you have a Discovery+ show that I should add to our watch list?
