Discovery+ on Sky

We've partnered exclusively with Discovery to offer all Sky Q customers access to the new discovery+ streaming service at no extra cost for 12 months.

How to get discovery+ on Sky Q/Sky Glass?

To redeem your exclusive gift from Sky VIP just say “get discovery+” into your voice enabled Sky remote and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you’ve switched from Sky Q to Glass and you claimed the free 12 month subscription offer while using Sky Q, you can still use the discovery+ app on Sky Glass at no extra cost for the remainder of your 12 month offer. Just sign into the discovery+ app with your discovery+ log in details.

If you're a new Sky customer with Sky Glass, we're unable to offer the free 12 month subscription. If you would like discovery+, you'll need to sign up directly with Discovery.

For more help signing up, activating and logging into discovery+ on all of your Sky Q boxes, visit our step by step guide or watch our help video below.

You’ll need to have an internet enabled device to hand to complete your registration - make sure you complete every step of the process to start watching all the shows you love!
