Philo added not one, but two channels today to its 60+ family of networks.
The two new channels added were Newsy and Crime+Investigation. Both channels are available to stream right now as you read this.
Mike Keyserling, COO and head of programming at Philo, said it is the perfect time to add a channel like Newsy.
“With the presidential election less than a month away, Philo is excited to add Newsy to our news offerings and our growing list of more than 60 channels,” he said. “The network’s focus on providing straightforward, opinion free news coverage is a perfect fit for Philo customers, who span every region and political affiliation in the United States.”
Before the addition of Newsy, the only news-related channels on the live TV streaming service were Cheddar and BBC World News.
In addition to Newsy being added, the Crime+Investigation channel was also included today.
Programming on the channel consists of “The First 48 Hours,” “60 Days In” and “Court Cam,” just to name a few.
Philo costs $20 a month and is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
