At last, a peek into the next phase in the lives of ultimate fixer uppers Chip and Joanna Gaines! Programming from their new Magnolia Network is currently available, but not where you might suspect.
Ever since 2018, when the couple stepped away from their wildly popular show “Fixer Upper,” then later announced that they’d be making a return on an entire network of their own, we’ve been waiting at the edge of our modern farmhouse seats.
The re-brand of Discovery’s DIY channel, into the new “Magnolia Network,” filled with inspiring shows on real estate, home renovation, cooking and more, was slated to launch in October of 2020. But the pandemic had other plans for it. Production on many of the new shows was delayed, and the launch date was rescheduled simply for “2021,” leaving us wondering if when we’d ever get our much anticipated “Fixer Upper” fix.
HGTV’s parent company, Discovery, decided to put us out of our misery sooner rather than later, announcing plans to launch a new streaming service called Discovery+, that would run shows from all its networks, including HGTV and Magnolia. It launched January 4.
Like all streaming channels (Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, etc.), there is a monthly fee for the privilege of previewing all the new Magnolia Network programming. It isn’t expensive though —you can get a 7-day free trial, and after that, it starts at $4.99 per month.
That’s not an outrageous amount, when you consider you also get more than 60,000 episodes of other favorite shows, like those from the Property Brothers, Jasmine Roth, Ben and Erin Napier, Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa, etc.
Comfort binges at the click of a remote! And if you’re really hankering for the latest from Chip and Jo, you can watch a limited number of episodes of these new Magnolia Network shows before full seasons air on “MagNet.”
