Thanks to the Warner Bros. Discovery, you can now stream Discovery Channel shows on Max! The recently renamed streaming platform hosts tons of popular shows and movies, including The last of us, And just like that, Succession and more. Max offers three tiers: an ad-supported basic plan for $10 per month, an ad-free plan for $16 per month, and an “ultimate ad-free” plan that offers four device streams, 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Atmos sound, and up to 100 downloads for $20 per month. Currently there is no free trial directly through Max, but you can get your first week free when you subscribe For Max as an add-on via Amazon Prime Video (index, index)

While you can now stream Discovery Channel content on HBO’s recently renamed streaming platform, Max, you can also still subscribe directly to the source and stream Discovery Channel content – including Shark Week 2023 – directly through Discovery+. If you’re not interested in paying for Max, Discovery+ is a great alternative (and cheaper) way to stream your favorite Discovery Channel shows. Subscribe to the basic plan for $4.99 per month or ad-free for $6.99. Discovery+ is also giving new subscribers a 7-day free trial, so hypothetically you could totally watch all of Shark Week for free…
