The new media company to launch its own site, Discovery+, is Discovery.
A library full of material ranging from food shows to home renovation series to “90 Day Fiancé.” can be found by viewers.
Discovery is ready to offer viewers access to fresh and previously broadcast content as the owner of hit channels like Food Network, TLC and HGTV, with the service scheduled to launch Jan. 4.
Although 90 Day Fiancé is a big draw, subscribers are waiting for other services.
A sampling of the more than 50,000 episodes available on Discovery+ is given below.
Displays for the foodies
Amy Schumer Learns to Cook: Uncensored: Amy Schumer and her husband-in-chief deliver their cooking show to viewers with an unfiltered look.
Luda Can’t Cook: Rapper Ludacris is not qualified in the kitchen, admittedly. He goes on his own culinary journey in this series to learn how to bake – in a good way.
Cakealikes: In this cake race, contestants in a satirical bakeoff must bake the cakes of life-size celebrities.
Tregaye Fraser, who has two main judges and a guest judge who helps pick the winners, hosts the competition.
Duff’s Happy Fun Bake Time: This show is “hosted by Duff Goldman, who along with a cast of fun, fantastic puppets from the Jim Henson Company, teaches the basics of cooking and how ingredients work together to create the food we love.” according to Discovery’s press release.
Mary McCartney serves it up: for her famous friends, including Cameron Diaz, Liv Tyler and Mark Ronson, McCartney whips up vegetarian dishes. Perhaps her father is going to make an appearance, too?

Fans on the platform will be able to watch old and new content. Besides Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Table cooking series with Joanna Gaines is also coming to the service.
Viewers will also watch the Courage to Run and Road to Launch series from Gaines, which represent just a portion of what the pair will show on the network.
With advertisements and $6.99 without ads, a Discovery+ subscription begins at $4.99 per month.
Lifetime, OWN, Discovery Channel, A&E, Animal Planet, Travel Channel and History Channel content will come under the umbrella of streaming.
