'Sing Again' gives a second chance to singers who had released albums in the past but never attained popularity.  
discovery+ brings Filipinos more than 20,000 episodes of current and classic shows from Discovery’s portfolio of networks, including Discovery Channel, TLC, HGTV, Investigation Discovery, Food Network, Magnolia Network, Travel Channel, Animal Planet, and Asian Food Network, to name a few.

At launch, the service features more than 100 new and exclusive discovery+ Originals from iconic franchises and personalities, such as Chip and Joanna Gaines, Sir David Attenborough, Joe Kenda, Bobby Flay, and Giada De Laurentiis, as well as a growing selection of Korean reality series, including Sing Again and It Takes A Village.

“The launch of discovery+ builds on more than 25 years of Discovery’s iconic real-life brands, loved personalities, and larger-than-life storytelling in the Philippines,” said Tony Qiu, General Manager, East, and Southeast Asia, Discovery, Inc.

“As one of the world’s fastest developing SVOD markets with a growing appetite for premium content on-demand, we are excited to bring Filipinos a differentiated service with unlimited access to Discovery’s iconic global shows, fresh original content, and local stories all in one place,” Qiu added.

discovery+ is the exclusive new home to Discovery’s most popular franchises in the Philippines - 90 Day Fiancé, Naked and Afraid, and Ghost Adventures. The service will also bring Filipinos the hit series Drag Race, featuring international adaptations, as well as the highly anticipated Drag Race Philippines in 2022. 

Under a partnership between Discovery and Globe announced last month, Globe’s customers on select plans can access exclusive, limited time, discovery+ offers. Globe At Home customers who purchase a Globe Streamwatch 2-in-1 Entertainment Box are eligible for a year of access to discovery+ at no additional cost.
