Owner of networks including Discovery, HGTV and Food Network looks to reach cord-cutters

Discovery Inc. announced deals to have its channels carried on web TV services offered by Hulu and SlingTV, giving the company more reach on the new generation of online “skinny” pay-TV bundles.

The multiyear Hulu deal will add Discovery Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Motor Trend and Animal Planet to Hulu’s $40-a-month live web TV service, joining other Discovery-operated networks that were already carried, such as HGTV and Food Network.
