Yesterday the live TV streaming service Philo for a short time, tweeted that they would be adding nine new channels before taking it down. These new channels include Bob Ross, Comedy Dynamics, Cowboy Way, Drag Race Universe, FailArmy, Outside TV, People are Awesome, the Pet Collective, and ScreamBox TV.
Philo did officially comment on Reddit that they are not quite ready to announce these channels but will soon be adding them. They also mentioned that the tweet announcing them went out early.
Here is a screenshot of the tweet a reader sent us:
Earlier this year, Philo added the Smithsonian Channel, USA Today Channel, and POP to its lineup.
This all comes after last fall, Philo renewed its carriage deal with Crown Media, ensuring Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries will remain on the Live TV service. This news comes just in time for Hallmark’s most important time of the year, the holiday movie season, which has proven to be a big driver in Philo’s subscriber numbers.
Philo remains committed to offering a low-price service free of high costs sports channels that drives up the cost of many live TV streaming services. Now they have slowly started to build up the number of channels they offer.
Last year Philo added several new channels, including:
The DECADES Network is a TV and pop culture time capsule. Through daily classic television comedy, talk and variety series, DECADES invites viewers to relive, remember and relate. Highlights include The Ed Sullivan Show, showcasing a stellar variety of performers of the 1950s to the 1970s, The Dick Cavett Show featuring interviews of the 20th century’s most compelling personalities and newsmakers, and The Carol Burnett Show with laugh-out-loud hilarious sketch comedy and big-name Hollywood guest stars.Start TV is the first and only TV network dedicated to scripted dramas featuring strong, successful women in diverse and compelling roles, augmented with inspiring stories of real women sharing how they got their “Starts” in business, facing life challenges, and experiencing personal reinvention.
