The new company’s impressive catalog and assets will rival those of Netflix and Disney
With Discovery’s $43 billion merger with WarnerMedia official, the new Warner Bros. Discovery houses a treasure trove of assets that rivals those of the entertainment giants, including Disney and Netflix.
Warner Bros.’ legacy content and award-winning development strategies complement Discovery’s strength in unscripted programming, which includes programming from the Food Network, HGTV and TLC.
The merger will also lead to the combination of Discovery+ and HBO Max into a new streaming platform which according to Ampere Analysis can offer the second largest library of titles in the SVoD (that’s subscription video on demand) sphere.
The family also includes something many of the other companies and their streaming services don’t have: news. CNN and its new streaming service CNN+ can give Warner Bros. an edge over the competition.
However the content ends up being sliced, diced, merged and bundled, here’s the impressive list of what Warner Bros. and Discovery each bring to the table (U.S. only).
