More Discovery Networks Join fuboTV


Discovery has entered into a multiyear carriage agreement with the virtual MVPD fuboTV that brings 13 additional networks to the platform.

The deal builds upon the alliance fuboTV had with Scripps Networks Interactive. Discovery Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and MotorTrend will be available on fuboTV’s base package, fubo Standard, which already includes HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel. Meanwhile, Science Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, American Heroes Channel, and Discovery Life will be available through to fuboTV’s add-on package, fubo Extra, joining DIY Network and Cooking Channel. Plus, Discovery en Español and Discovery Familia will be available on fuboTV’s Spanish-language package, Latino Basic, and the Latino Plus add-on package. In total, Discovery will have 18 channels on fuboTV. In addition to the live channels, the deal includes a library of on-demand content.

“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.”

“Today’s content agreement broadens the strategic relationship between Discovery and fuboTV that began almost two years ago with the former Scripps Networks,” said Joel Armijo, CFO of fuboTV. “We are excited to be adding more Discovery brands alongside their lifestyle networks, which we already carry. These brands, including HGTV and Food Network, are among our top performing entertainment networks, and this agreement allows us to extend our partnership for years to come. We expect to be similarly successful with our new Discovery networks.”
