Discovery, Inc. Content Joins Pluto TV


The free streaming service Pluto TV has signed a non-exclusive, multiyear content deal for a range of library shows from six Discovery, Inc. channels.

Select programming from Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, ID, Discovery Life, Science Channel and TLC will be offered on Pluto TV, beginning this month.

“We are thrilled to welcome another world-class media organization like Discovery to Pluto TV,” said Amy Kuessner, senior VP of content partnerships at Pluto TV. “Discovery is a renowned leader with premier programming that inspires and entertains all types of audiences. We are excited to introduce Discovery’s award-winning content to our viewers.”

“Having our world-class Discovery content as part of Pluto’s offering reinforces Discovery’s commitment to reach all viewers across all screens, platforms and devices,” said Gabriel Sauerhoff, senior VP of digital distribution at Discovery. “We are excited to provide audiences another way to access the shows that they love, while also introducing these brands and series to new viewers.”

Scripps Networks Interactive, now part of Discovery, made an investment in Pluto TV in 2016. The platform features more than 100 channels across a range of genres, plus a significant on-demand library.
