More and more people have been cutting off their cable because its too high, and a big reason for those high prices is paying for sports channels, whether you watch them or not. According to TechCrunch,
Now an Internet TV company called Philo has launched a streaming bundle that offers 35 cable channels, including many major ones, but no sports channels, for just $16 a month. That’s the cheapest option yet among the online TV offerings like SlingTV and Hulu. In addition to no sports, Philo, which debuted yesterday (November 14th), also doesn’t have any local broadcast channels or any of the cable news channels, but it does include such channels as AMC, HGTV, Food Network, A&E, Lifetime and Comedy Channel.
The package offers live TV as well as on-demand content. The full list of channels is: AMC; A&E; HGTV; Spike; TeenNick; Nick; Lifetime; Lifetime movies Network; MTV; MTV2; CMT; Viceland; Comedy Central; Animal Planet; BET; Sundance TV; Travel Channel; TLC; BBC America; BBC World News; Food Network; Discovery; AxsTV; GSN; VH1; History; TVLand; WE; OWN; IFC; ID; Science Channel; velocity; Cheddar; and F4YI Network.
Sounds good, but I need my sports. Would you try Phil? Take the poll and let us know.
