Wallet-friendly streaming service Philo has quietly removed the 24-hour digital news channel Newsy from its lineup.
A variant of the news channel Newsy will soon launch on dozens of Ion Media stations owned by the Scripps, the company said in a press release.
Scripps is expected to launch two new digital broadcast networks this year while simultaneously exploring new streaming opportunities for its existing networks.
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.
Grit, Laff, Court TV and Newsy will eventually replace Ion Plus, Qubo and two home shopping channels.
