For consumers tired of having to pay for sports channels they seldom watch, a new over the top streaming service will soon provide them with a way around those annoying fees.
Cable channels operated by Discovery Communications ( DISCA) , Viacom Inc. ( VIAB) , AMC Networks ( AMCX) , A+E Networks and Scripps Networks Interactive ( SNI) will "soft launch" a new streaming service in the coming weeks that will cost less than $20 a month, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The new streaming platform is intended for consumers wanting a non-sports programming package and instead opt for lifestyle, children's, nonfiction and scripted television shows.
Not included in the package are Disney's ( DIS) ESPN and Twenty-First Century Fox's ( FOXA) FS1, along with a number of regional sports channels.
