Philo launched its first add-on movie packages

Philo launched its first add-on movie packages, EPIX and STARZ “Movies & More” package, for an additional $3 per month. The channels included are:

  • Sony Movies

Additionally, we are adding four additional channels to our Free Ad-Supported TV (FAST) category of content.  In April, we built the “Free” section to our guide, bringing channels like Bloomberg TV and Revry to the lineup as part of a new initiative. Adding these popular, free channels to the lineup gives Philo subscribers the ability to watch more of the content they want to watch, easily located within the Philo ecosystem. The bonus channels, that have been added to the Philo lineup today, at no additional cost to subscribers are: 

  • Ryan and Friends
  • Players TV
  • Gusto TV
