New internet TV service: $16 per month, no sports
The hook of the latest internet TV service is a low price and no sports channels.
Unlike the existing services, Philo doesn’t offer many of the networks that are often considered must-have. It lacks sports and the dominant cable news networks and excludes broadcast networks like NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox. Instead, it focuses on music and comedy, scripted series and reality shows, with networks like AMC, Food Network, HGTV, MTV and Comedy Central. (The Spike channel, which is also included, does televise some mixed martial arts, a type of fighting.)
