A group of USA cable networks has launched a new subscription streaming service focused on entertainment, lifestyle and knowledge programming.
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.
The basic Philo package comes with live and on-demand access to 37 channels, and customers can add another nine channels for an extra Dollars 4 per month.
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. New subscribers will also get a 7 day free trial.

The female set, on the other hand, offers gamers a floral tank top, khaki shorts, a sunhat, a knapsack, and sandals. As for the males, they get to don bucket hats, blue tank tops, shorts with leggings and sneakers.
Philo will not have programming from NBCUniversal, Disney, CBS, Turner or Fox, as those companies still demand a premium for the channels, in part due to their extensive sports programming.
Philo, a general entertainment, skinny-bundle service with a track record on college campuses, is launching nationally today with a TV option designed for viewers fed up with bearing the escalating cost of sports rights fees.
At launch, this new service will support web browser, Roku devices, an iOS app, and Android via Chrome. Customers can watch on up to three devices at a time.
