Discovery Communications is the #1 pay TV company in the world and is ranked 79th in Fortune's 2014 list of the "100 best companies to work for." Its mission to satisfy curiosity, coupled with its drive to understand its audience has helped the brand connect with 2.7 billion subscribers to date in more than 220 countries. It is a global powerhouse with a market capitalization approaching USD $30 billion. In addition to The Discovery Channel, holdings include TLC, Animal Planet, Velocity, a 50 percent interest in Oprah Winfrey's OWN, and a controlling stake in Eurosport International. Discovery Communications achieved record international growth in the quarter ended July 2014, and now generates more than half of its revenue outside the U.S. Despite the flurry of media mergers, Discovery Communications remains an independent programmer. But it isn't all smooth sailing for the brand-3net, the world's first 24-hour, 3D network run in partnership with IMAX and Sony, has recently closed, though 3net Studios will continue to produce content. CEO David Zaslav is open about the company's plans to focus on growth outside the mature U.S. market, where network revenue is declining. Through partnerships and acquisitions, the company aims to expand globally by increasing advertising revenues, widening distribution and amping up investment in content for all types of screen. This year, the company launched 17 international feeds, which provide viewers with more localized content, scheduling and languages-making its networks more attractive to advertisers and affiliates. It also unveiled, a consumer-centric online marketplace that aggregates and organizes the best learning-based content from across the web. With its increased global presence on-air, online, and across more platforms, Discovery is well positioned to sustain its growth and relevance everywhere in the world.
