Now that new streaming platform discovery+ is available for those residing in the US, there are questions about how to watch its content on various devices.

One of those areas is smart TVs, with many people wanting to stream on their LG, Samsung and Vizio brand screens.

Here’s the lowdown on whether discovery+ supports each of these devices.


LG TV is not currently supported with discovery+. However, one way to get around this is by using Chromecast. In fact, this is what the support center on discovery+ recommends you do.

Samsung TV

Although the device is not listed on the compatible devices on the support center at the time of writing, reports online indicate that discovery+ plans to add Samsung smart TV imminently.

Vizio TV

Currently discovery+ will only work on Vizio SmartCast TVs which are 2016 models and above – but you will need to use Chromecast and AirPlay.
