New Streamer in Town

There’s a new live TV subscription streaming service in town.

Philo, which offers entertainment, lifestyle and knowledge channels, features not only live TV with pause and program restart functionality, but an unlimited 30-day DVR and on-demand programming.

The service also allows subscribers to watch on three different devices simultaneously, and to catch up on programs that have aired in the previous three days.

Philo has two subscription plans.

A $16-per-month option with 37 channels includes A&E, AMC, BBC America and BBC World News, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Own and Sundance.

A $20-per-month plan throws in nine more channels such as American Heroes, Logo, MTV Live and Nicktoons.

As with most services, there’s a free trial – seven days. Unlike most services, Philo doesn’t ask for your credit card information upfront, just a phone number.

You can watch Philo online and via Roku devices, the iOS app and Android Chrome. For more information, visit

Philo joins an expanding field of live TV subscription services. Others include Sling TV, fuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu With Live TV, DirecTV Now and PlayStation Vue.
