Discovery CEO Says New Venture Will Compete Head-To-Head With Netflix, Disney

Jeff Kotuby

Discovery CEO David Zaslav has big ideas for his company’s future — and it involves taking two of the industry’s titans head-on.

During his company’s time at this week’s Credit Suisse Communications Conference, Zaslav was asked about adding news content for free versions of streaming apps. Zaslav instead took the opportunity to praise two of his competitors — while letting everyone know where his company stands on news content.

“Look, the two global leaders, Netflix and Disney, they’re very clear about what they are,” Zaslav said. “Each of them has a menu of content, and they have a menu of what they can do. And if we look at Disney and Netflix, that’s the neighborhood we want to live in. That’s who we think we are.”

Disney+

Disney+ es un servicio sin anuncios servicio de vídeo en streaming que ofrece series y películas exclusivas de Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic y mucho más. Disney ha revelado que su servicio de transmisión llegará el 17 de noviembre de 2020.

El precio del servicio en streaming de Disney será $5,99 / mes o $59,99 / año ($5,00 / mes).

Zaslav credits the early success of (Discovery-owned) GB News, a new U.K.-based news outlet, as a way his company can compete with England’s “Big Two” (BBC News and Sky News), by offering content they won’t.

“Local news, local sports. We started the local sports, and we need to build local news,” Zaslav said. “And how important that is, it’s hard to tell — but it is a differentiator. Local content, local sports, local news against hanging out in the neighborhood where you have two other great players, but they’re not doing exactly what we’re doing. And that’s a good thing.”

Netflix

Netflix is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 3,000+ movies, 2,000+ TV Shows, and Netflix Originals like Stranger Things, Squid Game, The Crown, Tiger King, and Bridgerton. They are constantly adding new shows and movies. Some of their Academy Award-winning exclusives include Roma, Marriage Story, Mank, and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Netflix offers three plans — on 1 device in SD with their “Basic” ($9,99) plan, on 2 devices in HD with their “Standard” ($15,49) plan, and 4 devices in up to 4K on their “Premium” ($19,99) plan.

Netflix spends more money on content than any other streaming service meaning that you get more value for the monthly fee.

Would local news and sports be enough for Warner Bros. Discovery to compete with Netflix and Disney, though? Are they really content on competing with “WandaVision”, “Loki”, “Ozark”, and “The Queen's Gambit” with coverage of local collegiate athletics teams and new store openings downtown? For some, a local spin may be a big selling point, but many others would wonder where the big name shows and movies are.
