Discovery Plus launches limited time annual subscription for Rs. 99 amid nationwide lockdown

Discovery Plus streaming service made its debut last month in India at an introductory price of Rs. 299/year. Less than a month since launch, the company has now launched a limited time annual subscription for Rs. 99 amid nationwide lockdown.

As people are staying indoors due to lockdown, Discovery Plus has come up with this Rs.99/year offer under the #SafetyExtended campaign and this offer gives users an annual subscription at the cost of a monthly plan which costs Rs.99/month.

Users can avail this offer till 11:59 PM, April 16th 2020 under the ‘Premium’ page of the app and the company has also released a film titled “The outdoors can wait” urging people to stay indoors. Apart from this, Discovery Plus will be releasing an anthology of three COVID-19 documentaries this week, which can be streamed without a premium account.

In case you missed, Discovery Plus offers a wide range of content across 40+ genres, including Adventure, Science, Food and Lifestyle, in 8 languages including Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali and Marathi.

Commenting on this, Issac John, Business Head – Digital (South Asia), Discovery, said:

Our campaign film drives the message of urging audiences to stay indoors while bringing alive the most picturesque outdoors on earth – outdoors which can be seen through myriad shows that are available on the app. The idea of the #SafetyExtended offer is to help families across the country enjoy and engage with premium and high-quality real-life entertainment during the extended lockdown period. Alongside, given the huge interest amongst audiences about Covid-19, we’re releasing three documentaries on Covid-19 which will be available for free consumption on the platform.
