Discovery's programming is ideally suited to streaming audiences and as the cord cutting trend takes hold over the next 5 years, just as the adoption of cell phones transformed the telephone industry I expect contentent providers to be big winners.

Contrary to all the Foolish articles written about Discovery channel, it just does not have the legs to run. With more off-Cable selections, the TV world is losing viewership, and the smaller off-off-channels will be the first to fold. I'm monitoring… More

Mr. Market is negative on media stocks because of ongoing disruptions ("cord cutting", "skinny bundles", Internet streaming, etc.). Discovery's low-cost "unscripted" content that can be distributed/re-purposed across its international reach. (Discovery also has a sports channel in Europe that has rights to the 2018 and 2020 Olympics). Discovery is doubling down on their position and increasing their scale with their Scripps acquisition. This combined with strong ownership (John Malone) gives me comfort that Discovery will successfully navigate these challenges and likely emerge stronger.
