How to stream Discovery Life

The ins and outs of the human body.


Jaime Carrillo


The human body: what a conundrum. Does anyone truly know how it works? Luckily, there’s an entire channel dedicated to education about health, wellness, and all manner of medical marvels. Discovery Life is dedicated to studying the human body.

Discovery Life feels in many ways like old times TLC, back when they would air live surgeries. Granted, the programming on the channel is no longer as macabre as that. Programming includes deep dives into the medical profession such as Untold Stories of the E.R., Boston EMS, Mystery Diagnosis, and NY ER. It’s also a great channel to catch episodes of guilty pleasure reality hits such as Hoarders: Buried Alive, Addicted, and My 600 Lb. Life.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Discovery Life live stream.
