Following last week’s unveiling of the upcoming Discovery+ streaming service, a trio of top Discovery executives will take part in a special session of the Realscreen Summit to further discuss the new venture.

Nancy Daniels, chief brand officer for Discovery and factual (pictured, left); Kathleen Finch, Discovery Inc.’s chief lifestyle brands officer (center); and Lisa Holme, group SVP of content and commercial strategy for Discovery Inc. (right), will shed light on how the service, launching on Jan. 4, differs from Discovery’s myriad linear offerings, its unique selling point in the increasingly crowded streaming space, and the opportunities that will exist for content creators as the service kicks into gear.

The session, “A Deep Dive Into Discovery+”, takes place on Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. ET. For more information on the 2021 Realscreen Summit, taking place virtually from Jan. 25-Feb. 4, visit the official website here.
