People TV, the free, ad-supported streaming channel operated by Dotdash Meredith’s People Magazine, will shut down at the end of the month.

People TV offered programming developed by People Magazine and its sister publication, Entertainment Weekly, including “Reality Check,” “People Cover Story,” “People Weddings” and “Entertainment Weekly Cast Reunions.” Clips from the program were widely available on People and Entertainment Weekly’s YouTube channel.

People TV was carried across a wide number of free, ad-supported TV platforms, including Comcast’s Xumo Play, Fox Corporation’s Tubi and Allen Media Group’s Local Now. The channel was also available on a few pay television services like Philo and Fubo TV.

The channel’s last day of broadcasting is scheduled for January 31, 2023.
