Viacom Inc., AMC Networks Inc., and Discovery Communications Inc. are discussing plans with pay-TV distributors to make entertainment-only bundles for consumers who don't watch sports TV, according to Bloomberg.

The details: The group of cable programmers is talking with four to six pay-TV distributors, in various stages of negotiations.

The price tag: At least one service could be offered this year, and these packages could be less than $20 per month. That would be cheaper than YouTube's live TV service, which launched last week, and Hulu's incoming live TV service. It might be a web bundle.
