Philo Plans to Add Support For Network Apps “Early Next Year”




Philo is a live TV streaming service that proudly declares itself as a sports free streaming service. Starting at $16 a month you get access to 35 channels including A&E, AMC, Animal Planet, AXS TV, BBC America, Cheddar, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, Food Network, GSN, HGTV, HISTORY, Investigation Discovery (ID), IFC, Lifetime, MTV, Nickelodeon, TLC, Travel Channel. For an extra $4 a month you can add more channels including MTV Live, Nicktoons, Cooking Channel, AHC, Destination America, Family Channel, Life, and Lego.

One of the biggest complaints about the service after lack of device support has been the lack of app logins. Right now Philo does not let you log in to any network apps with your Philo credentials. Now it looks like that is about to change.

During an AMA on Reddit today Philo CEO Andrew McCollum was asked about adding support for network apps. Mr McCollum reply was “Yes, we will definitely be adding this soon. We are currently testing this, and it should start showing up to users early next year.”

This is great news for Philo subscribers and helps the new live TV streaming service standout in a crowded field that already has many live TV streaming services with network logins.
