Documentaries provide different fun and exhilaration from your typical web series and reality tv shows. Just knowing the fact that the shocking events unfolding before you have actually happened in the past can make you shiver and excited. Movies and shows are fun to watch, but they lack the charm of realness that’s imbued in documentaries. Nowadays, many documentaries are available on OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and more. You can discover the most loved true-crime documentaries easily on these streaming services. However, if you want to watch a wider range of non-fiction true-to-reality events, then you should head to the OTT platform created by the Discovery channel. You can easily find the best documentaries on the Discovery+ OTT app for just Rs 199/month or 399/yr.
