Saw a Notice: Discovery + App will be coming to X1 "soon"

Hi all,

I said "Discovery plus" into my X1 voice remote and it took me to a folder view containing many Discovery + previews. There was also a message clearly stating that Discovery + will be available through Xfinity X1 service "soon." It also said it would notify me when the service becomes available.

 

So, does anyone have any additional information on "how soon" the app will be available?

 

I already have the Discovery + service working on 2 of my 3 TVs (via Roku); however, I want to include my 3rd TV. This means I either need to buy a 3rd Roku Express stick or "wait" for Xfinity to include the app in their lineup.

 

If anyone has any additional information on "when" it will be available, I would certainly appreciate it. For the record, I live in south-eastern Chester county, PA.

 

Thank you.

@NJGroundHog Hey there! Thanks for the post! Discovery+ is currently not available on X1, Flex or any Xfinity TV platforms. However, we’re working to bring Discovery+ to X1 and Flex later this year. When the Discovery+ app launches on X1 and Flex later in 2021, you’ll be able to watch this programming on your TV by subscribing to Discovery+. We do normally include that kind of information in email communication. If you don't have those settings on by signing into your online account at https://comca.st/3acvxdi;

Thank you Jodie! Sounds like "later in 2021" may turn out to be "much later in 2021." With that said, I will order the 3rd Roku today.
