Philo Adds Kin Library
On February 23 of 2022, Philo, released a blog post to announce that it had added the Kin VOD library to its service, for all subscribers to enjoy.
“We’re thrilled to launch Kin Community’s Video-on-Demand (VOD) library on Philo. Truly a kindred spirit (apologies for the pun), Kin’s special brand of female-focused lifestyle content- with an emphasis on entrepreneurship and female empowerment from diverse talent, fits perfectly into the Philo lineup.
Shows including “Really, Truly, Maybe” with Christina Milian, “Hello Hunnay” with Jeannie Mai, and “Heart of the Batter” with Jordin Sparks, are now available as part of Philo’s base package for all subscribers.”
This means that Philo viewers can now access a huge range of Kin content easily and conveniently via the Philo platform. And since it’s all “on-demand content”, you can watch it whenever and wherever you want, on any Philo compatible device.
Deadline reports that Philo COO, Mike Keyserling, is thrilled with the news, “We’re thrilled to bring Kin’s entertaining and diverse content to our platform for our subscribers. Kin’s programming, which specifically focuses on entrepreneurship and female empowerment, is a great fit for Philo’s community.”
Kin COO, Tejal Ajmera, agrees, “We are excited to debut Boss Moves with Philo and are confident it will attract audiences looking for strong, talented, and diverse talent.”
What Is Kin?
Kin is a celebrity-driven, lifestyle programming network aimed at diverse female audiences aged 25 and above. The Kin Community creates a range of meaningful, entertaining content around themes like food, home, style, and family, such as Tia Mowry’s Comfort Kitchen and Wear It Well with Adrienne Houghton.
Using an end-to-end production model, Kin finances, produces, and distributes its own programming. It works directly with its creators and provides directly for its target audience. This has allowed the platform to have a lot of creative freedom and build an authentic brand over the years.
Millions of viewers have turned to Kin for great lifestyle content. And plenty of great creators have joined the Kin Community, too, from Jeannie Mai to Julissa Bermudez, Christina Milian, and Tina Yong.
