“DIRECTV always strives to offer the content our customers want most, wherever, whenever, and using whatever device – but also at a strong value they can really appreciate,” said DIRECTV chief content officer Rob Thun. “As more of our customers gain interest in top streaming services, and we add streaming services from programmers like Warner Bros. Discovery whose linear channels we also offer, we can help our programming partners expand their reach while also offering our customers similar preferred discounts.”

“At discovery+, we know our audiences look for our content across platforms and distribution services, and our mission is to provide access to our best-in-class content to as many consumers as possible,” added Sarah Bergman, senior vice president, distribution at Warner Bros. Discovery. “Our partnership with DIRECTV allows us to continue to build on that goal by offering our beloved programming to its customer base, expanding the reach of our content, and adding ease and accessibility to our fans’ viewing experience.”
