There’s big news from the world of streaming media! 

Warner Bros. Discovery has announced plans to merge its HBO Max and Discovery Plus services into a single streaming platform that would launch in the summer of 2023. The company is also discussing the possibility of offering a free ad-supported version of this new streaming service.

While the company hasn’t announced a name or pricing information for its new streaming service, we do know that it will carry Warner Bros. titles like Friends and the Harry Potter series alongside Discovery shows like Deadliest Catch, Magnolia Table, and more.

Warner Bros. Discovery is also working on a 10-year plan to add the DC Comics franchises to its streaming collection, similar to what Disney has done with Marvel.

In the meantime, get access to HBO’s entire library, plus get exclusive streaming access to the biggest Warner Bros. movies of 2022 on HBO Max for as low as $9.99/month!

With so many streaming channels available, why should you choose Discovery Plus?

I’ve subscribed to just about every streaming service out there at one time or another (and let’s be honest… sometimes all of them at once 🙈). Over the last year, though, I started to really evaluate what we were getting out of those services and the bills they came with. Some of them made the cut to keep, while others did not (bye-bye, Netflix).

Out of all of them, Discovery+ is the one I’m least likely to ever drop. It has a little of everything and a lot of my favorites. My favorite is the Magnolia Network, where I can stream all the home improvement, cooking, and self-improvement channels I could ever want. And if I still want a little more after all of that? I can watch my favorites from both HGTV and the Food Network.

Plus, like much of our Hip2Save team, I’m a true crime junkie, and the top shows plus original documentaries are available from Investigation Discovery. I could go on and on about why this is my preferred streaming service, but with the free trial, you can give it a chance and check it out for yourself – I think you’ll love it, too! – Hip2Save Sidekick, Liza


I signed up for Discovery+ when this deal started and my daughter has been loving watching Kids Baking Championship, Mythbusters Jr., and more. I was surprised at how many great shows just for kids there are on Discovery+! – Hip2Save Sidekick, Chelsey L.
