Discovery+ On Nvidia Shield not Streaming HD


Novice Member
Previously Discovery+ on the 2017 Nvidia Shield used to stream in HD for me but now only streams in SD. Does anyone else have the same problem in the UK?

I have to Chromecast from my phone to stream in HD which works but is a faff.

My Nvidia Shield is on a 1GB wired connection and can stream up to 4k on other apps Ok. I've tried all the usual uninstall/reinstall/reset tricks to no avail. I did raise a support request with Discovery+ but they said the Nvidia Shield isn't supported which I think was a boiler plate answer despite the US site saying it is supported and previously used to work.

The problem is I'm not sure if it was an update to the Nvidia Shield that stopped it working or the Discovery+ app so it would be good to know if others have it streaming in HD. I'm on the latest version of Nvidia Shield and the Discovery app is at 7.2.2.
