Pivot Launches on University Streaming Service Philo

Participant Media’s television network Pivot is launching on streaming service Philo, bringing its programming to university campuses across the United States, the network announced on Wednesday.

Philo, a television service that uses a university’s existing IP network and contracts with satellite providers to stream high-quality television on an authenticated basis, will bring Pivot to student laptops, tablets, smartphones and televisions across participating campuses at the start of the fall semester in September.

“As a network for Millennials, we are very excited to now be carried on Philo’s system, which is made for our core audience,” said Stephanie Ruyle, Pivot’s executive vice president of distribution.

Pivot also encourages its viewers to get involved online via its affiliated social action platform and news site, TakePart.com.

Pivot’s programming includes the Emmy-winning series “Hitrecord On TV” from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, “Please Like Me” and news and entertainment talk show “TakePartLive.”

This month, Pivot premiered two new series including workplace docu-comedy “Human Resources” and “The Operatives,” an eco-adventure series following Pete Bethune and his team of conservationists, and has two more slated for October premieres: “Welcome to Fairfax” and “Freestyle Love Supreme.”
