If Discovery+ did come to Canada, it would likely have to be without the content licensed to other providers Bell or Corus (ie. no show from Discovery, Animal Planet, History, H2, Food Network, Cooking, HGTV, etc.). It would basically only be TLC and A&E from what I believe and possibly FYI now that it's not in Canada.

Is Discovery+ available in Canada yet? If not are there any deals in place where this content will air?
It doesn't look like the original content for Discovery+ will come to Canada anytime soon. I've been keeping an eye on the press releases and I haven't seen any on the content that is exclusive to Discovery+ appear on the Bell or Corus channels. Here's more info.

There's a chance the TLC content will go on demand with cableco's / Fibe providers. TLC Go often did this with web exclusive content previous to Discovery+ and since TLC is directly licensed in Canada, Discovery has complete control over this content without having to go through Bell or Corus.

While we probably shouldn't think too differently, it does not look like Bell has the streaming rights of Discovery programming (not counting Canadian originals) since none of them appear on Crave. The situation probably look like Hayu. The latter pick up series from E! despite Bell having the broadcasting rights of the shows. None of them appear on Crave either.

Discovery has it's own streaming app in Canada (Discovery Go) which is why none of that content would end up on Crave as that would be redundant. The other issue is the majority of content is held by Corus not by Bell in this case as outside of Discovery and TLC (which is independent in Canada and held by Discovery corporate) almost all of the possible rights are owned by Corus and not Bell. A Hayu situation is possible but there is also the possibility of a Peacock situation as well where Corus picks and chooses what it wants and whatever it doesn't want we just don't get.
