New US Entertainment-Focused Live TV Streaming Service

New US Entertainment-Focused Live TV Streaming Service”

Philo first started as a TV service for university campuses.

The basic Philo package comes with live and on-demand access to 37 channels, and customers can add another nine channels for an extra United States dollars 4 per month. Subscribers to this new service will get access to 35 networks for $16 a month called Philo. Those channels include AHC, Cooking Channel, MTV Live, Nicktoons, Destination America, Family Channel, Life, and Lego.

To hook in new customers, Philo is now offering a free 7-day trial period that requires just a US -based 10-digit cellphone number in lieu of a current credit-card number.

The service includes an unlimited 30-day DVR, plus on-demand programming. Subscribers can watch on up to three devices at the same time. "There is no specific date nor specifics on which additional platforms".

Need cord cutting tech support?

What's missing from the Philo channel lineup tells a lot of the story of its target audience and strategy.

What's more, unlike YouTube and Hulu's packages, local affiliates for the major over-the-air networks are not included.

Among the 46 total networks offered at launch, the only ones offered outside of the five cable programmers are Cheddar (a digital business network that describes itself as "post-cable"), GSN and BBC World News.

But unlike most streaming packages, Philo lacks both national and regional sports networks such such ESPN and the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network. That, he believes, will make Philo a different alternative for cord-cutters interested primarily in entertainment programming and "skinny bundles" of channels at a reasonable price.

A+E Networks, AMC Networks, Discovery, Scripps Networks and Viacom are on board for a new USA streaming video service featuring live TV, DVR and on-demand services, focused on entertainment, lifestyle and knowledge programming.
