While 2020 was a challenging, unprecedented year, there’s no doubt that sheltering in place was made just a little bit easier thanks to quality television shows and movies. In fact during those seemingly endless twelve months, the "streaming wars'' intensified. Established services like Hulu, Disney+ and Apple TV+ upped their offerings while new platforms, like NBC’s Peacock to the short-lived Quibi (R.I.P.), joined the fray. Needless to say, Netflix now has some serious competition.

While we love options, it can also feel a bit like networks are simply reinventing the wheel. In this case, ditching your cable package for half a dozen streaming services doesn’t exactly feel liberating. However, another serious streaming contender, Discovery+, threw its name in the figurative ring in January 2021. Featuring everything from House Hunters and 90 Day Fiance to Shark Week and exclusive content, is this new platform worth the hype?
