Prime Video Channels has a new deal where you can subscribe to Discovery+ for $0.99/month for 2 months. This is for the ad-supported plan, which normally costs $4.99/month. The ad-free plan costs $6.99/month and is not on sale. Note that, unlike most Prime Video Channel subscriptions, subscribing to Discovery+ through Prime Video Channels does not currently give you access to the Discovery+ app. You’ll only be able to stream through the main Fire TV interface or through the Prime Video app on any device. One thing the Prime Video Channel subscription of Discovery+ does give you, however, is access to 11 live streaming channels which will be integrated into the Fire TV’s live program guide. This offer ends tomorrow, Sept. 15.
As if the rumored purchase of MGM by Amazon wasn’t a big enough shift in the media industry, AT&T has announced that it will be spinning off its media business WarnerMedia, which includes HBO, into a new company that will merge with Discovery. Once regulators sign off on the merger, the new unnamed company will be in control of media properties such as HBO, CNN, TBS, TNT, Discovery Channel, Food Network, TLC, HGTV, and many more. It will be the second-largest media company in terms of revenue, second only to Disney.

Also, these live channels aren’t what you think they are, which is probably a live feed of their traditional cable channels. Instead, they are channels playing nothing but an individual show, or two, all day 24/7. Read more ›

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.
