Philo subscribers are not losing access to AXS TV and HDNet Movies. While a temporary agreement kept the channels available up until now, an agreement has been reached to keep both channels on Philo.
In July, Philo began emailing subscribers to let them know that they were due to lose access to AXS TV at the end of the month. Those signed up to the Movies & More add-on were also being notified that they would lose access to HDNet Movies at the same time, due to the same agreement coming to an end.
At the start of August, however, subscribers still had access to both channels. Soon after, Philo confirmed that the channels would remain available while negotiations over AXS TV and HDNet Movies continued.
Now, Philo has begun emailing base plan subscribers to let them know that an agreement has been reached, and that AXS TV won’t be removed from their channel lineup, as previously announced.
Streaming Better has since confirmed the same situation for HDNet Movies. Those that have subscribed to the Movies & More add-on will continue to have access to the HDNet Movies channel.
Those paying for the add-on may have also noticed that Philo recently added Fandor to Movies & More. With the addition of Fandor, add-on subscribers have gained on-demand access to a collection of indie, international, documentary, and classic films, and at no additional cost.
For those base plan subscribers that have yet to try Movies & More out, the add-on costs $3 a month and unlocks access to Reelz, Sony Movies, and FMC, in addition to Fandor and HDNet Movies.
