Philo: Live & On-Demand TV app reviews

  • Ads 3/5

    More ads per program (on CMT anyway) than any streaming service I’ve used!!! And those services are cheaper.
  • Totally stopped working 1/5

    By CarlaGrzybowski
    I canceled my subscription because they removed the show that I was watching on demand. My subscription had just renewed so I should’ve had it for at least three more weeks so I was going to try watching some live TV while I still could and yet it just stopped working completely.
  • Home Screen 3/5

    By Kamc_1986
    The Home Screen is not working. The app is not working properly. It continues to say can not fetch data please try again. Please fix this error/bug.
  • No access 1/5

    By symonfirst
    Dated 7/21/2021. The app is not opening up on my iPad for the last two days. Uninstalled & reinstalled still a no go, never had a issues with the app for the pass year I have had service.
  • Error fetching data 1/5

    By source full

    By Purseforlifeandtomorrow

  • Good Service 4/5

    By darkmatter0714
    Excellent value for the money.
  • The greatest 5/5

    By tornado siren
    I think this is the greatest thing I ever had on my cell phone and my TV I think this is a good Avenue for people who doesn’t have cable
  • I must be desperate! 1/5

    By Nikkitee504
    This is the worst Tv ap ever. The sound goes out. It buffers often and there are way too many commercials. This is not worth my money. Again no am desperate to get a glimpse of my shoes when it does corporate. I think I may go back to cable.
  • UX issue on Apple TV Fixed! 5/5

    By 33rpmvinyl
    The font size issue in the channel guide has been fixed. Updating my review to five stars!
  • Great Line UP! 5/5

    Great Line Up!
  • I typed in FREE movies why is this even made 1/5

    By rancy pantsy
    I hate it they should just have free movies 😠🙄
  • Wanted to love it. 1/5

    By Seana Magnano
    So we dropped our cable and I’ve been trying to find a way to get History channel for my husband. I Read all the instructions and perks of Philo. I was so excited. However, even with 2 apple phones(11), a laptop, tablet and brand new tv we cannot stream. So what’s the point. We cannot even get the app on our new tv. So unless a miracle happens we’ll be canceling within the first 24 hours. Really bummed.
  • crap 1/5

    By Butttylishes
    you pay $25 a month and still have to watch commercials that’s ridiculous also for discovery plus I only pay seven dollars with no commercials. Philo you are a rip off queen
  • Casting Unavailable 1/5

    By Danielle Rud
    What’s the point if I cannot cast it to my TV? I do not want to download replica because it’s just mirroring my phone. This does not allow my to use my phone while watching TV. Please add casting to google chromecast etc. to make this of value.
  • Trial Goers Beware 1/5

    By whfjfuisbs
    I tried the trial back in January and ended up canceling it almost the same day and deleted the app. Recently was going through my finances and realized I have been being charged since then for 7 months of no use. When I contacted customer service I was told they don’t do refunds and even after pushing to talk to a supervisor, telling them I cancelled the trial and having them review my account which showed no use since January they still refused to give my money back. I guarantee they have this no refund policy in place because I’m not the only one who canceled a trial and still got charged. So, beware with the trial unless you know you want this service.
  • Local stations 5/5

    By Trina Simmons
    I’m enjoying Philo, loving the save and Ming watch features! Just wish some local channels were available such as; CBS, USA, ABC, FOX. Thank you Philo, Trina Simmons
  • Best for the buck 5/5

    By keblove
    Been using Philo for years and haven’t ever thought about going back to cable.
  • Love it but very grainy and freezes 1/5

    By bbghytdfgv
    I am quite fond of your service. I think you offer an amazing value with a lot of variety. I stream your service on my television and my phone. The problem I have is, the service is terrible on my brand new iPad Air. I’ve reached out to your customer service numerous times only to be told to stream online Wi-Fi. Well, that doesn’t solve the problem and I don’t always have Wi-Fi and I shouldn’t have to use my Wi-Fi to use your service when I’m paying for unlimited cellular data. I’ve used your live chat, I’ve use email and I recently sent an email a little over a week ago and I still am not hearing back from anyone.. I keep the app updated regularly and I still have a grainy choppy service. I would love it if someone would help me but I can’t seem to get anyone to help
  • Not sending code 1/5

    By BjrPLAYZ
    Im trying to sign in, they send me a code, but then, there is no code! Tried to resend code dozens of times. Please fix this!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Libby b12
    Philo has the most or in most cases all the episodes ,of the shows that you want to watch,Great app, I pay every month in my iCloud acc, using an Apple Card,this save me money’s every month, I’ve tryed other apps, costing more money’s, and the shows I called up had every limitedEpisodes,And I had to pay extra for less commercials, and you can’t fast forward or rewind during commercials, you can do all this and more with philo worth the money’s, user for life!!!
  • New TV UI is awful 1/5

    By Garbade
    Went from being able to see a couple hours of all of my favorite channels to being able to see 90 minutes of 2 channels. So much wasted space
  • Better than SlingTV 5/5

    By myFAVORITEme
    Better channels, DVR, and cheaper!!
  • Fraud 1/5

    By Cate Carney Coaching
    I had access to my favorite shows for the first month then when I renewed for the second month all my favorites are grayed out and no access.
  • Garbage app 1/5

    By snow6176
    Ok I download the app because it says it has the new I Carly reboot on it come to find out it’s not and everything is so small it’s impossible to read IM 20 YEARS OLD this shouldn’t be a problem
  • I don’t like it 2/5

    By kenzie pie😎
    It has too many ads and there very long there like 4 or 5 minutes ads
  • What happened!!!!???? 1/5

    By Tibbie Mom
    You made a change to you app and now it will no longer play on my iPhone 🤬. What is the deal??!! When will this be fixed??!!
  • Does not support iPads that cannot receive iOS 13. 1/5

    By PatriciaT.T
    Does not support iPads that cannot receive iOS 13. The app instantly crashes and takes you back home. Cannot enjoy any shows now that the app crashes
  • Picture in a picture 5/5

    By ppo Jeff dg
    I love this app, but I would love it if you could make it available to be viewed as pip on cell phones.
  • Ugh 1/5

    By IrishMc75
    By far the crappiest service I’ve ever had. It will play commercials all day long but when show is supposed to start back you get a spinning circle that say 34% and that’s it! I guess you do get what you pay for. It’s complete trash!
  • Glitchy 3/5

    By usernameistaken59
    The content is good but I get really sick of seeing “video player error” every other time I try to watch something. Right now I’ve been trying to get it to play for 30 min. Hulu and Netflix are working so I know it’s Philo’s issue.
  • Issues playing on my tv 1/5

    By RemB305
    Philo isn’t that good on televisions. I have an updated tv and Philo would play fine and then out of nowhere stop playing! It says “Unable to fetch Meta, Contact support” I’ve already paid for my month and now I can’t watch! I hate to request a refund but I paid for something that doesn’t function properly.
  • PIP 3/5

    By TanksWithApples
    Canceled subscription because it is now the only streaming app without Picture in Picture mode. At least youtube lets you use side by side mode on IPad.
  • Stay clear 1/5

    By Alley1980
    I don’t recommend them to anyone. They tried to tell me I had to accounts and billed me twice in one month…one day after the other. They even billed me the following month after it was cancelled
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Msladypink98
    The absolute best programming and service of this kind on any platform.
  • Not user friendly 1/5

    By damon.brooks
    Can’t stream on tv
  • Get it now 5/5

    By chrisfrgn
    Love Philo best ever
  • Was real good… but 4/5

    By Crystal_blessed_bryant
    My husband introduced to me to this platform as I was looking for a service that I can watch on my IPad. In the beginning the service was awesome. Now I can’t even get the app to open to where I can watch live TV on my iPad. It shows the blue philo word like it’s loading in the background then crashes. such a setback. I would like to watch the service I’m paying monthly for. Outside of this issue, it’s a good platform for anyone looking for live tv service at an affordable price. 👍🏽💯. Hope this gets resolved soon.
  • Love it 5/5

    By SUNSHINE5704
    Hey love Philo !!! And you don’t need cable high bills! When I turn off my cable, they ask why ! I said you don’t know? App for Philo and other stuff is taking over girl bye ! No box’s no wires just an app I love that I have y’all ! Thanks
  • Excellent Streaming App 5/5

    By DMacLean15
    Philo is one of my favorite options when it comes to streaming. Pros: - Sleek layout that is easy to navigate - Solid lineup of shows and movies that is updated/changed frequently - Affordable Price with multiple payment options - Includes a lot of my favorites without the additional undesirable channels that clutter standard cable television. - “Saved” feature so you can save your favorite programs without even having to record them. - Ability to create separate unique user profiles Cons: - None My Rating - 5/5 Stars - An Optimal Browsing Experience
  • Great service and value, app needs a couple of things. 4/5

    By EricRosener
    To begin, I’ve come back to Philo after a brief hiatus. I came back rather than go elsewhere because I still believe the service is the best in price for what you get. Yes there is not sports channel offering, there are no local channels, and there is no cable news access, which was the reason for my brief hiatus. But for everything else, I love Philo. I would line a couple of things in the apps though. I use the iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV apps, and none of them have a picture-in-picture option, at least from what I can tell. Being able to reduce the program size to browse the guide, or go out to other apps would be really great. Also making a distinction between VoD, DVR, and live in the guide that is clearer than knowing what spot you touch would be nice. Maybe even make the guide live only and have separation between the others. Thank you Philo for giving us a streaming program option that makes sense and is a value!
  • I’m deleting 1/5

    By Purplesrar
    Too many AD’s for 20.00 a month like for real Lies regular cable do not show 20 ad’s for one show. I have cable also. Scammer.

    By jerenab
    Terrible! And they also have poor customer service
  • Ok 3/5

    By erase card
    I was a subscriber since the beginning and I was paying old price if $20, then my subscription canceled because of my old CC that was stolen and I forgot to update. They did not honor me the $20 a month instead put me automatically to $25 a month which I don’t think it’s fair at all. I was a loyal customer paying straight years then one small mistake they automatically put you as a new subscriber.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By manablue73
    Awesome app I use it everyday :) I’ve never had any issues with it and it’s way cheaper than traditional cable and we move around hotel to hotel and with philo it moves with me so I don’t loose any of the shows I’ve saved . I definitely recommend philo
  • My show won’t play! 😭 4/5

    By sophiathecute
    Once I started using Philo, it worked really well! But after a couple months, I clicked on the channel, and it just won’t play!!! It just keeps loading and doing weird stuff! Can you fix this plz? Edit: it works now! but it keeps doing this! i wonder why? 🤔
  • Commercials .. 2/5

    By MaylissInes
    I liked the app but I had to cancel due to long ads (5min) which is very boring. I do not recommend the app ! The free trial also tend to end before the end of the trial.
  • Best App 5/5

    By cataleyabw
    I deleted every app I’m satisfied 🥰!
  • Best Streaming Service Ever!!!!! 5/5

    By Bray1980
    No other streaming provider offers so much for so little! PROs: The interface is easy to use. The price is $20/month for 60+ channels with unlimited 30-day DVR and 1-YEAR for only $25/month! Crazy, right?! The Hallmark and Lifetime channels as well as food, HGTV, Insp, Up, Nick, and all the music channels keep me a subscriber! The interface and signing in are super easy to navigate and to do! CONs: I honestly can’t think of any at the moment, but I do have some wishlist items I’d love to see fulfilled! WISHLIST ITEMs: I would love to see a crazy amount of channels offered—but allow us to choose the ones we want. I would love to have unlimited DVR with zero expiration dates. I would also love an easier way to add videos to my library like a plus/save sign on the video image. I would also love to be able to see when a title is already in my library. Finally, I would love for shows and movies to have themes attached to them. If I want to auto-add all “Christmas”-themed films and shows to my library, I can just search for and select that them. Then, click auto-add.
