Discovery Communications became Discovery, Inc. when it closed its merger with Scripps Networks Interactive in March, bulking up to 17 networks in the process. As he finishes combining the two companies, president and CEO David Zaslav said he is eyeing a direct-to-consumer offering that would give subscribers access to his company’s entire portfolio.
