Can I Get Discovery Plus on Firestick?
Discovery is the best and most famous channel that provides information regarding Nature, Animals, Science and other technology or Lifestyle. This is basically a TV-based service means the user must have a subscription for it and then they can watch their favorite documentaries.
However, most of you might be wondering and surely have a question like can I install the discovery Plus channel on Firestick? So, the simple answer for this is that, Yes you can get Discovery plus on a Firestick device as it is officially available on the App Store.
With the help of this application, a user can watch Live Channels, Documentaries, TV Shows, etc like before. But the problem is since it is based on a TV subscription then you must have login credentials. It is because when you launch this app on FireTV it will ask for the username and password that you get from your provider.
This is why if you already have a subscription to it then you can watch all content including Live TV free of cost. But if you didn’t purchase any service yet then, unfortunately, you can’t watch the discovery channel. In this way, you should simply leave this article here or else purchase a TV service for you.
How To Install Discovery Plus on Firestick
Now after reading the above guide you surely understand that we can watch Discovery Plus on Firestick but it requires a subscription. So, if you have purchased it as I instructed above then you should probably keep reading this article until the end.
However, as I already mentioned above that the Discovery+ is available on the Amazon App Store. That means there is no need for sideloading or downloading it from any 3rd-party websites. In this way, you also feel comfortable while signing with your account as a third-party website may use phishing code to steal data.
Ok, so let’s follow the steps given below to install Discovery Plus on Firestick:
Boot your FireTV and then from Home Screen hover to the above menu and select Search or Magnifying glass icon.
At this time you will see a keyboard there now using navigation keys type Discovery.
After this from the suggestions scroll down and select Discovery Channel. You will then see various apps related to that search term now click on the First results (check screenshot below).

At this time Discovery Go starts downloading automatically then wait for a while until downloads complete and then select Open to launch it.
Now the Discovery is successfully installed on a FireTV device you simply need to login with your account details. After this, you can simply watch Documentaries, TV Shows, Live TV, and so on.
Sideload Discovery+ on Firestick
Now let’s consider if you have a subscription but you are outside the country then you won’t be able to install it from App Store. It is because Amazon provides apps geographically means if you are outside that location then App Store won’t show that application either.
At this point, the last option that we have is to sideload Discovery instead of installing it from the app store. This process is quite simple as you just need to enable Unknown source and then download the app using Downloader.
Ok, so the first thing you need to do is Enable installation of 3rd-party apps by following this guide: How to Enable Apps from Unknown Sources on Firestick
After you enabled this option now install the Downloader app using this article: How To Install Downloader App on Firestick
Once you completed the above task now simply check the steps given below:
- Launch Downloader app and when you open it the first time it will ask for permission then simply select Allow.
- After this click on the small box that appears there to open the keyboard and then type https://firesticklab.com/discovery.apk and click on the Go button.
- It will start connecting to the server and then App downloads automatically.
- Just wait for a while until it downloads and then Installation Window appears there then click Install button.
- The app will take a few seconds to install and once completes click on the Done button.
- You will see the Downloader app again with three buttons so now click the Delete button.
- After this, you will be asked for the confirmation so again select Delete.
Now the Discovery is sideloaded on your device you can check it by going to Home Screen > Your Apps & Channels > See All. It shows all the installed apps just scroll down and you will see the app appears at the bottom.
After reading the above guide we learned how to install Discovery Plus on Firestick and watch our favorite TV Shows. This quite is way easier since this app is available on the App Store which saves our time. However, make sure to purchase a TV subscription first, or else you won’t be able to watch anything from here.
Furthermore, you can use Discovery+ anywhere in the world just by using a VPN to change your default location. Although if you don’t want to purchase a TV subscription then I would recommend installing YouTube TV instead. As it provides almost the same features and has the option to choose from hundreds of channels.
