Philo will raise its base subscription tier to $25 a month while increasing the accessibility of its cloud DVR feature.
Philo CEO Andrew McCollum said the company has crossed more than 800,000 subscribers over the last three years.
Philo announced the addition of two new channels on Tuesday while pledging to keep its base subscription price the same for new and current customers.
Responding to a question posed by a Redditor, Philo CEO Andrew McCollum says the budget streamer wants to bring customers AMC Plus.
A blockbuster merger between Viacom Corporation and CBS Corporation will not impact Philo’s ability to carry Viacom-operated cable networks for at least another year.
The high cost of sports and other programming means companies like YouTube TV might have to increase prices without adding channels or features.
