What is Philo? You Asked, We Answer

We know that choosing the best streaming service from a long list of options can be overwhelming. We’re here to help you make your choice by breaking down the options and answering some of the questions you might have about each one.

In this post, we’re answering some of the most common questions we get about Philo.

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.
