Early next year, Discovery will launch a new global streaming service. Meanwhile, Dplay will change its name.
In the first phase, Discovery + will be launched in 25 countries, including India, the United Kingdom and Ireland. The next step is for Dplay to change its name in the North.
For our Swedish and Scandinavian customers, this means that in January you will meet them with a brand new brand. They’ll be able to access the same content we have on Dplay today and of course, more exclusive content in the future. In addition, we will provide more of our sports content on the new streaming service, he says Niklas Norby , Discovery in the Nordics CEO, in a press release.

American viewers have to pay $ 5 for the service (or $ 7 for the ad-free version). It is not yet clear how much the Discovery + service will cost in Sweden
