Discovery, Inc. (formerly Discovery Communications) is an American mass media company based in New York City. Established in 1985, the company primarily operates media properties serving members of "passionate" audiences.
The company's core operations consist of a group of non-scripted and factual television brands, such as the namesake Discovery channel, Animal Planet, Science channel, and TLC. In 2018, the company acquired Scripps Networks Interactive, adding networks such as Food Network, HGTV, and Travel channel to its portfolio.
