Discovery’s CEO Wants a $10 Sports FREE Skinny Bundle




Sports maybe some of the most popular service on TV but there are many viewers who would happily do without sports. Now it seems Discovery’s CEO is joining a push by Viacom & AMC to offer a streaming service with no sports channels.

“Sports is hyper-extended here,” Zaslav said in his company’s quarterly earnings call. As a result, existing services including DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV, YouTube TV and Hulu With Live TV have become “a bit of a stuffed turkey.”

“I see the skinny bundle in about 200 countries,” he added. “There is no skinny bundle here. The skinny bundle in the U.S. is a fiction.” When you include the cost of broadband, “the skinny bundle is $60 or $70. So it isn’t a skinny bundle. It’s a bundle. It’s a bundle that may be attractive to a small group of people.”

For now the potential no sports live TV streaming is only a idea but one getting a lot of support. Not only has Discovery, Viacom, and AMC put their support behind it but it is rumored that Charter is also looking at the option.

There still is no date or even name for a $10 sports free live TV service but maybe someday we will have that option.
