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.
