Philo has added an additional nine free, ad-supported TV (FAST) channels to its base plan today, providing subscribers with access to even more free content.


Philo is a cheap live TV streaming service in general. There is only one plan to choose from and it is priced at just $25 per month. For that price, subscribers get access to more than 70 live TV channels, with the lineup including Discovery, Hallmark, Lifetime, MTV, and VH1, among others.

In addition to those paid live channels, Philo subscribers also get access to a selection of FAST channels, and that selection has grown by an additional nine today. All of the new channels are already live, so existing subscribers can look for them in the live guide and start watching immediately.

New FAST channels added to Philo today:

  • Vevo ’80s
  • Vevo ’90s
  • Vevo Country
  • Vevo Hip-Hop
  • Vevo Pop
  • Chicken Soup for the Soul.

As mentioned, Philo already offered a selection of FAST channels as part of its base plan, so these new additions join those others. Prior to this update, the last batch of free channels were added in May and unlocked access to The Bob Ross Channel, Comedy Dynamics, Cowboy Way, Drag Race Universe, Fail Army, People are Awesome, Pet Collective, Outside and Screambox TV.


Other free channels that were already available included Cheddar News, Crackle, Gusto TV, Kin, PlayersTV,, RetroCrush, Revry, Ryan and Friends, and USA TODAY.

Following the addition of Chicken Soup for the Soul and the other eight channels that were added today, Philo subscribers now have access to a total of 28 free channels as part of their base plan subscription.
