Budget-friendly streaming service Philo is adding another music video channel just in time for the holiday season.

The new channel, called Vevo Holiday, promises to deliver a “estive musical extravaganza, featuring a blend of current and classic hits that are perfect for the holiday season.”

Vevo Holiday is set to unleash a slate of original programming with curated music videos throughout the season, including “A Mariah Carey Christmas,” “Poppin’ Holiday,” “The Yule Log Hour” and “Star-Studded Celebrations,” among others.

The channel will also include “artist takeovers” from pop acts like John Legend, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber, according to a blog post published by Philo on Tuesday.

Vevo Holiday adds to a growing list of Vevo-branded music channels launched on Philo in the past few months. Other channels offered on the service include Vevo 80s, Vevo 90s, Vevo Country, Vevo Pop and Vevo Hip-Hop.

Philo offers more than 30 free, ad-supported streaming (FAST) channels to streaming cable TV replacement, though the FAST channels still require a subscription to the service. A Philo subscription starts at $25 per month and unlocks cable channels from the portfolios of Warner Bros Discovery (Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, OWN), Paramount Global (Comedy Central, BET, VH1, TV Land, Nickelodeon), AMC Networks (AMC, IFC, BBC America), A+E Networks (A&E, History Channel) and others.

Philo offers a seven-day free trial that allows users to try the service out on smart TVs, tablets and phones without cost.
