Discovery Plus has started 2021 with promises of new engaging content. With over 55,000 episodes on the platform already, more are promised in the coming days. Not only can subscribers get to enjoy old Discovery network shows they can also enjoy new shows and channels.
One of the new channels to look forward to on Discovery Plus is Magnolia Network. Here is all you need to know about this upcoming channel and where it can be watched.
What is Magnolia Network?
Magnolia Network, owned by Discovery, is the brainchild of Chip and Joanna Gaines who were the founders of the popular show Fixer Upper. Since the announcement of the lifestyle-focused network on Discovery, Magnolia Network has been in development.
The network was supposed to be launched last year. However, due to the pandemic, the launch of the network was pushed back. So, in December it was announced that 2021 would see the new lifestyle network with its exclusive list of shows launched on Discovery Plus. The network was earlier rumored to be replacing the DIY Network, however, it now appears that Magnolia Network will be existing separately.
Is Magnolia Network available on Discovery Plus?
Magnolia Network is yet to be launched on Discovery Plus. While it is to become a part of the platform in 2021, the date of its launch has not been announced. On their page, the network has been sharing updates on what the year holds. Viewers need to wait for the lineup of original shows. They can watch the Road to Launch on Discovery Plus as well as on Magnolia Network’s pages.
Currently, Discovery Plus subscribers can watch all the episodes of Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines. The show is available on the Food Network.
On January 29, Discovery will be bringing new episodes of the fan-favorite Fixer Upper. The latest season is called Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. It is unclear if the latest season of the show will be on the Magnolia Network or any other Discovery Network.
So, those waiting to tune in to Magnolia Network have to wait for the network to get launched on Discovery Plus. Meanwhile, they can get a snippet of the network’s programming from the Road to Launch and Joanna’s cooking show.
Will Magnolia Network be only on Discovery Plus?
Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines aired on Food Network even before the launch of Discovery Plus. Those who pay to watch Food Network on their cable or satellite platform were able to see the first couple of episodes as they were aired. Discovery Plus has also not announced if the networks owned by Discovery will cease to be available for those who are not subscribed to the exclusive platform. Magnolia Network in all their promotions has stated that they will be available on Discovery Plus. They have not clarified if they will be accessible to viewers as in the case of channels like Food Network and HGTV.
In conclusion, while the preview of the network is exclusively on the platform, we have to wait till the network is launched to know if Magnolia Network will be available on platforms other than Discovery Plus.
