    BBC and Discovery set to launch streaming service in 2020

    This is in the planning stages

    Discovery and the BBC are chucking out the script in a new global streaming venture that will combine its extensive real-life entertainment library with the UK media giant’s natural-history catalog.

    The video service, which is expected to cost less than $5 per month, will be 100-percent owned by Discovery, which has reached an exclusive 10-year agreement with BBC Studios for all of its natural history programs in SVOD (streaming video on demand) in territories outside the UK, Ireland and China.

    The over-the-top service, set for a 2020 launch, seeks to rival those of Netflix and Amazon, as well as future offerings from Disney and Apple — but will distinguish itself by focusing only on factual genres.

    “The others mostly deal with scripted content,” Discovery Chief Executive David Zaslav said in a phone interview. “We’re not in that game.”

    I see the future. Somebody is going to bundle the Netflix, Discovery, CBS, Disney, .... streaming services into one package. Maybe put it on the cable :-)
