Philo, the leading entertainment-focused TV streaming service, today announced that it is adding Crackle, an AVOD (Ad-supported Video on Demand) service owned and operated by Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company, bringing thousands of movies and TV episodes on-demand to its line-up and significantly increasing the amount of VOD content available to all subscribers.
In addition to Crackle, starting today, Philo will also bring Bloomberg TV and Revry to its existing live TV lineup to give viewers the ability to watch more content through Philo. Bloomberg TV will give viewers live access to the latest in business, markets, and technology news, and Revry brings the first global streaming network focused on the LGBTQ community.
“Philo offers affordable TV content to their fast-growing audience and we are thrilled to give them full access to Crackle’s library of Hollywood blockbusters and classic TV shows, as well as a growing collection of original and exclusive content not available on any other platforms, such as Going From Broke, which will launch a second season on May 20th,” said Philippe Guelton, President of Crackle Plus.
Philo’s subscription package includes more than 60 live channels and 60,000 current on-demand offerings from popular networks including A&E, AMC, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, Food Network, Hallmark Channel, ID, Lifetime, MTV, Nickelodeon, OWN, TLC, TV One, WE tv and many more, for only a $20 per month. Earlier this month, Philo partnered with T-Mobile to offer Philo for just $10 per month, a 50% discount, to all T-Mobile and Sprint postpaid subscribers.
“The addition of new content from Crackle, as well as Bloomberg TV and Revry, further highlights Philo’s commitment to provide our customers with the best TV viewing experience at a great value,” said Mike Keyserling, COO and Head of Content Acquisition at Philo. “We’re glad to be able to add these incredible channels to our robust line-up of programming for Philo viewers.”
“Revry is thrilled to bring Queer to Philo with a curated selection of movies, shows, and news from the newest voices within the LGBTQ+ community,” said Damian Pelliccione, CEO/Co-Founder. “Revry inspires exploration of creators that authentically represent queer culture for all audiences.”
