Philo subscribers will soon get access to AMC+ at no additional cost. Philo is already a very affordable live TV streaming service, but having access to AMC+ will greatly increase the value on offer with the service’s base package.

An AMC+ subscription costs $8.99 a month and unlocks access to content from AMC, Shudder, Sundance Now and IFC Films Unlimited. In late 2023, AMC introduced a new $4.99/month tier, with the main difference being the inclusion of ads with the cheaper plan. It is this ad-supported tier that Philo subscribers will soon get access to.

AMC Networks released its latest quarterly results today, and as part of the financial release, the company confirmed the agreement with Philo as one of its 2023 operational highlights.

Collaborated with Philo on an innovative new packaging arrangement that will include AMC+ ad-supported in Philo’s base video offering for all new and returning customers, at no additional cost to the customer.”

Streaming Better has confirmed with Philo that this information is correct and that the ad-supported AMC+ tier will soon be included with the service’s base package at no additional cost.

In November 2023, Philo announced the addition of a number of free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channels from AMC Networks. It would appear that the upcoming addition of AMC+ as another benefit is an extension of that existing agreement.

While confirmed, it remains unclear when the AMC+ benefit will go live for Philo subscribers. However, with AMC and Philo having both now confirmed the benefit is coming, we assume Philo subscribers won’t have to wait too long before they can watch AMC+ content as part of their base package.
