Watching TV, Watching, Living Room, Domestic Life, SmilingFor some time Discovery has been talking about launching a subscription streaming service. Now it looks like with their deal to buy Scripps, the parent company of channels such as HGTV, that it’s close to becoming a reality.

This week Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav said when the Scripps deal is done they will be looking at a streaming service.

“We will be looking hard at that both domestically and internationally,” said Zaslav. “We could create a pretty compelling offering for $6, $7 or $8 that would look a lot different than Amazon Prime and Netflix, and it could be very attractive in every language globally. So we’ll keep our eye on that.”

Discovery is not the only service talking about their own streaming service. Recently Viacom announced plans to launch an ad-supported streaming service by the end of 2018.

While this is not true à la carte TV because you will be buying content from multiple channels at once not single channels, this is a step in the right direction.
