Are The Discovery Channels Available On Cue Streaming?

The Discovery Channels are hugely popular documentary channels – any streaming/cable/satellite provider will need to have them included to attract customers over.

So what about the newcomer Cue Streaming service? Do they have the Discovery Channels? Given their very attractive pricing compared to other providers, it’d be a feather in their cap if they did have it, and thankfully, it’s great news for new and prospective Cue Streaming customers.

All the Discovery Channels are included with Cue Streaming:

  • Discovery (East)
  • Discovery (West)
  • Discovery Español
  • Discovery Family
  • Discovery Familia
  • Discovery Life
  • Discovery Science
  • Discovery Velocity

Here’s a snapshot of what shows up when you do a channel search for Discovery within the Cue Streaming menu/TV guide interface:

In other words, if you’re a Discovery fan, you’re covered switching to Cue Streaming – all the channels are there.

All channels will also be broadcast in HD as long as your device supports it. Resolution depends on the device used not the provider, so HD is available if your TV/device allows it.

What Other Channels Are Available On Cue Streaming?

The Discovery Channels are available on Cue Streaming as you’d expect because they’re so popular, but despite being a newcomer, they already have a massive catalogue of several thousands channels available.

Here’s a quick screenshot of some popular American channels they have:

Some other popular channels for documentary/science enthusiasts might be: National Geographic, History Channel, Science Channel,

But the list of nowhere near exhaustive and they have a couple of thousand in total, with more being added.

If you’re looking for a specific channel to see if it’s available on Cue Streaming, they’ve got a search feature on their site to check their catalogue (you can do this without needing to create and account, sign up or sign in).

But as a general rule, pretty much ANY channel you’re used to watching with your current cable provider is almost certainly also available on Cue Streaming.

How To Get Started With Cue Streaming

If you like the channel selection, and attractive pricing, that Cue Streaming offers, getting started with them is pretty easy.

Here are the general steps:

  1. If you want to watch through a TV, you’ll need a Firestick for each TV used, if you don’t already have one. They’re available cheap on Amazon. Otherwise, you just need an internet connection to get started.
  2. Go to the Cue Streaming website
  3. Click Sign Up and fill in your details
  4. Pay your subscription ($59.99/month, 5 devices per account, no contract, no set up fees, cancel anytime).
  5. Run through some easy initial setup depending on your device (TV setup takes a few more steps but isn’t hard).
  6. You’re good to go, watching most or all of the channels you currently watch.
