A streaming service bundling cable networks HGTV, Food Network, Discovery Channel and TLC is "very close" to launching, Discovery CEO David Zaslav said Thursday. “You’ll hear from us soon. I think one of the keys is getting partners to help,” Zaslav said during a Goldman Sachs Communacopia interview, according to The Wrap. “So we’ve been very quietly over the last year working aggressively, getting all of our stuff together. We’re quite close. The additional thing that’s happened is, people are getting very acclimated to this idea of subscribing. I think we’re at the very beginning of that cycle, and they’ve subscribed to a lot of stuff. For us, we’re going to be coming with a fresh library of content, a huge amount of fresh originals at a time when the road has been paved by Netflix and Disney and HBO, and people are getting more and more acclimated to viewing content on devices."
