Discovery Plus comes with some considerable media might behind it, but it’s not for everyone — especially if you don’t care about renovations, cooking, or reality TV. If you’d rather spend your hard-earned streaming money elsewhere, here’s how to cancel Discovery Plus in a hurry.

QUICK ANSWER

The way to cancel Discovery Plus in most cases is by logging into discoveryplus.com, selecting Account from the dropdown menu, then clicking Cancel under the Plans (or Subscription) section of Manage Your Account. If you subscribed through Amazon, Apple, Google, or Roku's own purchase platforms, you'll have to use their dedicated subscription management tools.

How to cancel Discovery Plus on the web

The Manage Your Account screen for Discovery Plus on the web

If you signed up for Discovery Plus directly — usually meaning its website, or many TV apps — you’ll want to cancel via the web. There are just three steps:

  • Sign into your account at discoveryplus.com.
  • Open the dropdown menu and click Account.
  • Under the Plans (or Subscription) section in Manage Your Account, click Cancel.

In fact, if you signed up directly but try to cancel through an any app, you’ll probably be pointed to the Discovery Plus website regardless.

How to cancel Discovery Plus on Roku and Fire TV

If you signed up through Roku or Amazon’s  purchase systems, you’ll have to unsubscribe the same way.

For Amazon’s Fire TV:

  • Go to amazon.com (or your country’s equivalent domain), and navigate to the Your Account page using the drop-down menus.
  • Under Digital content and devices, click Your apps. These menus may have different names, since Amazon sometimes alters them.
  • Choose Your Subscriptions from the left-hand menu.
  • Find Discovery Plus and select the Cancel option.

On your Roku device:

  • Hit the Home button on your Roku remote.
  • Navigate to the Discovery Plus app, then press the remote’s star/asterisk button. If you subscribed through the Roku Channel, navigate to that app instead.
  • If you subscribed through the Discovery Plus app, choose Manage subscription, then Cancel subscription. If you subscribed through the Roku Channel, choose Manage subscriptions > Discovery Plus > Cancel subscription.

How to cancel Discovery Plus on Apple devices

Apple requires any app with an in-app subscription option to use the App Store. Thankfully, this does mean that Apple devices offer a centralized place to cancel, although it varies based on your product.

On an Apple TV:

  • Click Users and Accounts, then select your profile.
  • Click Subscriptions.
  • Choose Discovery Plus, then Cancel.
