Discovery Communications has announced Discovery Channel HD 2.5, a new version of the network’s dedicated iOS app for watching full episodes from Discovery Channel shows.
Discovery Plus is now available in version 2.5, bringing “an interactive second-screen experience, synced live to your favorite shows.”
The service lets you tune in and get exclusive factoids, photos, and more, as well as play a previously aired Plus-enabled show on your DVR. You can also sync to view the experience on your own schedule.
The developers ask users to note that not all shows are Plus-enabled, while iPhone owners currently don’t have Discovery Plus support (but it is coming soon).
The update further includes new improved sharing for iOS 5, in-app browsing of App Store content, schedule information, bug fixes, and several optimizations.
