Samsung is easily among the most popular smart TV brands around. It’s no wonder then that Discovery Plus has launched its official app on Samsung’s line of Smart TVs. Here’s how to get started using Discover Plus on your Samsung Smart TV.
Sign up for Discovery Plus
Before getting the app, you must first sign up for Discovery Plus. Visit the Discovery plus website and click Start Free Trial to start the registration process. Select a plan, create an account and enter your billing details.
You must have a 2017 or later Samsung Smart TV model. If you meet this requirement, good news! You can install Discovery Plus on your Samsung Smart TV, no problem.

Press the Home button to view the menu. Use the directional buttons to access Settings and press the middle button to select it.
In the menu, go to Support. Select it and you will get the Software Update option.
If it is disabled, your Samsung Smart TV software is up to date. If not, press the middle button. You will have the Update Now and Auto Update options. We recommend that you choose Automatic Update so that you don’t have to manually update it again in the future.
