Like other traditional media companies still collecting hefty fees from pay-TV operators, Discovery has to walk a fine line in feeding Discovery+ while also maintaining fresh programming for traditional networks. Asked about that balance on the company’s quarterly earnings call with analysts, CEO David Zaslav said, “We are just experimenting, we’re moving some — we’re moving things around. But we still have a full commitment to the existing bundle. We are the bundle. I mean, it’s basically news, sports and us.”

Discovery+ Tops 11 Million Paid Subscribers

  Discovery+ Tops 11 Million Paid Subscribers Discovery Inc's newbie streaming platform Discovery+ has topped 11 million total paid subscribers since its Jan. 4, 2021 debut and is "on pace" to hit 12 million by the end of February. "We are off to a promising start in 2021 with the successful launch of discovery+," CEO David Zaslav said in a statement Monday when unveiling the company's fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 earnings. "We have now surpassed 11 million total paying direct-to-consumer subscribers globally and are on pace to be at 12 million by the end of the month, underscoring the value of the investments we've made in content, beloved personalities and brands with huge consume

Discovery ’ s Self - Described “ Experiments ” In Streaming Could Affect Carriage Talks , Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen Warns . Discovery ’ s self - described “ experiments ” with programming on nascent streaming service Discovery + are one reason why it has quickly reached almost 12 million direct-to-consumer subscribers. The company released the streaming totals — of which Discovery + makes up the bulk — as part of its fourth-quarter earnings report.

As to the prospect of shifting more originals to streaming, Zaslav and other executives on the call stressed the 55,000-hour streaming library and a less hit-driven mentality than that of other subscription streaming players. “Top shows that are trending,” Zaslav estimated, “represent less than 10% of what people are watching.”

Dish Network chairman Charlie Ergen, who led Dish’s quarterly earnings call a few hours after Discovery’s, is keeping a close eye on the rollout of Discovery+. Ergen has long been known for his bare-knuckled dealings with programmers and willingness to drop networks he doesn’t consider worth paying for (including HBO, which has been dark on Dish for more than two years, as Ergen noted on the call.)

“Discovery’s got great content and we’ve been in a long-term relationship with them,” Ergen said. “But obviously, to the extent you can get it on an à la carte basis, it’ll affect future negotiations. A lot of our customers don’t watch Discovery. Should we burden every customer with Discovery if they can get it somewhere else? … It’s just economics. It’s not rocket science.”

Discovery Passes 11M Streaming Subscribers, Topping Estimates, But Q4 Revenue Stalls On Pay-TV Fade

  Discovery Passes 11M Streaming Subscribers, Topping Estimates, But Q4 Revenue Stalls On Pay-TV Fade Discovery said it has passed 11 million direct-to-consumer streaming subscribers and will reach 12 million by the end of February, a gain of about 7 million subscribers since December. The parent of cable networks HGTV, TLC, Food Network and the Discovery Channel launched streaming service Discovery+ on January 4 in the U.S. and is rolling it out globally. The $5-a-month service has a limited amount of advertising and 55,000 hours of programming. It accounts for the majority of the company’s total streaming number, though Discovery also operates niche services focused on golf, European sports, food and other areas.

Discovery ' s Self - Described " Experiments " In Streaming Could Affect Carriage Talks , Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen Warns . Originally, Magnolia Network was supposed to take over Discovery ’ s DIY Network in October 2020 after a rebrand, followed by a launch of a direct-to-consumer product at a later date. When the coronavirus pandemic hit and shut down all Hollywood production, the launch of the linear network was delayed right as Discovery + was coming online.

Asked by Morgan Stanley’s Ben Swinburne about whether he feels “optimistic or comfortable putting your best IP on D-to-C versus linear,” Zaslav replied, “I wouldn’t say, ‘best.’ I would say, ‘different.'”

The traditional network business continues to be central to Discovery’s strategic thinking, he emphasized. “It’s still a great model,” he said. “And we think it’s going to go on for quite some time. It’s also a terrific feeder. So, the people that are watching our cable channels are buying the [streaming] product.”

Discovery has learned a lot from its initial weeks in the streaming game, Zaslav said. Based on initial customer feedback, he explained, Discovery+ “is a service that people could watch sort of in two ways. One is, while they are cooking, they can — we added a feature where you can — almost like a synthetic channel, where if you love Fixer Upper and you love the Property Brothers and you love Guy Fieri, you can just put that into the app. And that’s what’ll run all day long. And so, on the one hand, you may really want to watch the Attenborough or this great crime documentary or Ina Garten is doing a great show with Melissa McCarthy.”

On many subscription streaming outlets, he said, programming is “there for intention, where you have a full-on focused intent to view.” Discovery has some of those titles, he said, “but we also have this ability to be a companion.” The latter function, he said, is crucial to fortifying relationships with advertisers, about 100 of which have already bought time on Discovery+.
