Discovery Is Gunning to Compete With Netflix By Being King of Unscripted TV

  • Indiewire
The newly expanded Discovery, which recently acquired the Scripps Networks stable of lifestyle outlets like Hgtv and Food Network, is ready to take on the streamers by being the factual/unscripted alternative. Speaking to reporters on Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour, CEO David Zaslav hinted that an eventual direct-to-consumer Discovery streaming service would cost between $6 and $8 a month, and be promoted as an offering that would be an alternative, or additive, to the scripted-heavy offerings of other services.

“We see the media business as two sides — one side is scripted series and movies, and we’ve moved away from that,” Zaslav noted. Those scripted services already charge, or eventually will charge, between $10 and $15 for their platforms. “We see what we have as everything else,” he said. “We have great content.
