Philo Opens Up Access to TV Everywhere Sites, Apps

Philo, the entertainment-focused OTT TV service, said it has opened access to TV Everywhere apps and websites for most of the networks in its lineup.  

TVE support for OWN’s authenticated TVE apps and site will be coming soon.  

Philo subs can tap into programmer-run TVE offerings using their login credentials.  

After an initial focus on multiscreen TV services for college campuses, Philo branched off in November with a national virtual MVPD service that starts at $16 for a lineup of more than 35 channels, along with a mix of add-on packages. Philo users can access up to three simultaneous streams per account and set up profiles for individual users.
