Discovery Networks has signed a new contract with streaming TV service fuboTV that will bring 13 more channels to its lineups and allow subscribers to access on-demand content from Discovery’s suite of networks.

“Today’s content agreement broadens the strategic relationship between Discovery and fuboTV that began almost two years ago with the former Scripps Networks,” said Joel Armijo, fuboTV’s chief financial officer. “We are excited to be adding more Discovery brands alongside their lifestyle networks, which we already carry. These brands, including HGTV and Food Network, are among our top performing entertainment networks, and this agreement allows us to extend our partnership for years to come. We expect to be similarly successful with our new Discovery networks.”

Base fuboTV Standard subscribers that pay $54.99 a month will see Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Investigation: Discovery, OWN-the Oprah Winfrey Network, and Motor Trend added to their lineup. Customers paying for fuboTV Extra ($5.99) will also receive the Science Channel, Destination America, Destination Family, American Heroes Channel, and Discovery Life. Two Spanish language networks — Discovery en Español and Discovery Familia will appear on fuboTV’s Spanish language lineup.

Discovery is aggressively signing deals with independent streaming TV services as cord-cutting continues to take a significant toll on satellite and cable television services. Preserving an established viewing audience will be crucial to Discovery’s marketing efforts for its own forthcoming streaming platform, which will look like a non-fiction/documentary version of Netflix.
