fuboTV Adds 13 Discovery Channels Including Discovery, Investigation Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, OWN, MotorTrend, & More
fuboTV and Discovery have reached an agreement to bring 13 additional networks to their base fubo and fubo Extra plans.
As part of the deal, Discovery Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, OWN, and MotorTrend Network will be added to the standard Fubo plan ($55). The Fubo Extra add-on (+$6) will carry other Discovery-owned networks like Science Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, American Heroes Channel, and Discovery Life. It is expected that the channels will roll-out on the service in the coming weeks.
The multi-year agreement will see the Discovery-owned networks join former Scripps Networks Interactive (acquired by Discovery) channels — HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network, and Cooking Channel. This partnership also will bring Discovery en Español and Discovery Familia networks to fuboTV’s Spanish-language base package, fubo Latino ($25).
“Our partners at fuboTV are building a unique programming service, and we are pleased to bring more of our portfolio of real-life passion brands and programs to their subscribers,” said Eric Phillips, President of Affiliate Distribution at Discovery. “This agreement further exemplifies the viewer affinity for our beloved brands and talent, and fuboTV’s commitment to offering high-quality, world-class content to customers.”
Discovery has aggressively been joining Live TV Streaming Services over the past year. In December, most networks were added to Hulu Live TV and Sling TV, while YouTube TV added the channels in April.
