    Discovery has reached a renewal of its distribution deal with that will also put the company’s channels on Dish’s streaming TV service Sling TV.



    Speaking on CNBC, Discovery CEO David Zaslav said that the current deal with Dish was expiring and that the new one will be effective before the end of the year.

    The new deal has favorable economics for Discovery and gives Dish channels that are “getting better and generating big audiences,” Zaslav said.

    Discovery networks will also be on both the Sling blue and Sling orange packages.

    “We’ll get more carriage for some of our channels that’ll do particularly well with the Dish audience,” he said.

    Doesn't say if we will get online access for Discovery Networks. Website doesn't have login for dish or slingtv yet.
