How to Improve Streaming Playback Quality on Discovery+ App?

If you’re experiencing issues with the Discovery Plus app random crashing, stopping, buffering, skipping, stuttering, or freezing, there are a few things you can do to improve your streaming quality.

  1. Check your internet connection. A strong and stable internet connection is key for smooth streaming. If you’re using a wireless connection, try moving closer to your router or connecting using an Ethernet cable.
