Discovery Communications merged with Scripps Networks Interactive earlier this year to become Discovery, Inc with 17 popular networks under its belt, which include Discovery, Food Network, HGTV, TLC, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, Oprah Winfrey Network, Science Channel, Cooking Channel, DIY Network, and more. CEO David Zaslav has now said he is considering offering all 17 channels as a new streaming service bundle. A possible price of $5 to $8 per month was mentioned for the hypothetical subscription. A timetable for the service has not been mentioned, but it seems inevitable that all major TV networks will eventually have a direct-to-consumer offering.
