Sports-Free OTT Bundle Philo Launches

While it won't deliver viewers their football fix, Philo has programming deals and $25 million in investment from five top programming groups, including A+E Networks, AMC Networks, Discovery Communications, Scripps Networks Interactive and Viacom.

A group of U.S. cable networks has launched a new subscription streaming service focused on entertainment, lifestyle and knowledge programming.

Channels on the new service include 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. Subscribers can pay an extra $4 per month to add nine additional channels.

Bombardier sells 12 planes to EgyptAir
Earlier this month an unnamed European airline said it meant to buy at least 31 of the C-Series planes. The deal includes 12 additional aircraft with purchase rights.

Philo will offer a 30-day DVR with pause and restart capabilities, as well as an on-demand library. You will also be able to watch on up to three devices at the same time.

At launch, this new service will support web browser, Roku devices, an iOS app, and Android via Chrome. As YouTube and Facebook continue their aggressive moves in the TV space and the OTT landscape fairly saturated, Philo will face some headwinds out of the gate but is betting on its innovative and intuitive user interface and price point well south of cable packages or other skinny TV offerings.

Named for television inventor Philo T. Farnsworth, the company made its initial reputation on college campuses, a hotbed of cord-cutting.
