Philo is Coming to Android & Amazon Fire Tablets

philo logoSince launch one of the biggest complaints about Philo has been the lack of Android support. Today Philo is announcing support for Android phones and tablets as well as Amazon Fire Tablets running Fire OS 5 or later.

This helps open up Philo to even more users who want to watch it on Android devices. Here is what the new Philo android app looks like:

So What is Philo?

Philo is an affordable streaming service that keeps costs down by skipping local channels, including sports and news channels. For cord cutters that aren’t interested in those channels, it’s a great option on its own. Others find that combining Philo with another service that does offer local channels gives them their ideal setup.

With a subscription, you’ll get 58 channels of live TV and on-demand content.

How Much Does It Cost?

A subscription for Philo costs $20/month, after a free trial that you can get with just a mobile phone number (no credit card required.)

How Can I Watch?

Philo is available on the following devices:

  • Web Browser (Apple and Windows)
  • iPhone and iPad
  • Android phones and tablets (on Chrome)
  • Android TV
  • Roku
  • Apple TV
  • Amazon Fire TV

Philo says that support for additional devices will be coming soon.
