Philo: Live & On-Demand TV app reviews

  • Great app but… 4/5

    By Zexoprea 😠😳😳😳
    this app is great for cable purposes bears not paying over 300 $ for cable tv but i do wish there was more channels to choose from and a refresh button for the guide other than that A+
  • Philo 5/5

    By sturpin
    I absolutely love Philo! I like being to start watching where I stopped watching it and watching my in on my phone. Great app!!
  • Love hate relationship 4/5

    By ctruss85
    I have been a customer for a few months now and love everything about it until two days ago…while watching on my Apple TV the app keeps force closing while watching, I have went to see if I needed to update the app on the device and it says it’s fine, I love this app but this is making me really mad. I have updated my Apple TV, reset it just to make sure that it’s not the device and it still force closes. Could anyone help me with this issue please?
  • App Crash 3/5

    By AppTester2019
    With the latest Philo app, I get crashes on my iPhone and Apple TV. You can be watching a show and suddenly the app crashes and you have to restart it. This is something that has just started. I don’t know if it’s with the latest apple release or the Philo release.
  • App repeatedly closes 3/5

    By Sorry I purchased this crap
    I love the service and the pricing. I hate that the app repeatedly shuts down on the Apple TV platform. Please fix the bugs.
  • Annoying 2/5

    The app glitches entirely too much. Half the time when i go on the app on my phone and try to skip something it will glitch out and I try exiting out completely and go back and it still does the same thing.
  • Same commercials 5/5

    By Pebbles1126
    Love the app for the most part just don’t like that it plays the same commercials very annoying especially when binge watching a show lol
  • Does it work anymore… 2/5

    By rAllcorn
    Final stop working on my wife’s iPad mini 2. I checked it out online, same thing. When I contacted customer service they claimed it was because of the new operating system update. But my iPad mini 2 has been in the shop for a couple of weeks, waiting for parts, and it doesn’t have the update. It still doesn’t work! The problem lies with Philo, regardless of what they tell you… “Day“, and refuse to do what they need to do to make their older abs still functional on the new iOS. And even on the old iOS, it will no longer work. So… Philo doesn’t work anymore.
  • Philo App 5/5

    By bro nae
    I love this app & its movies and shows . My only comment, and dislike is you can’t mirror the app to your tv it just doesn’t play .
  • Great price 5/5

    I really enjoy Philo Tv affordable price I just wish they had bravo other from that great streaming TV.
  • Not worth it 1/5

    By LouC9999
    This app failed to meet expectations. Some of the newer shows on mobile never load and do not work. Another concern is that with the app even with an expensive subscription you are still watching 10 ads per episode. Lastly, there is no mobile casting option. Overall, this app is inferior to other streaming apps.
  • Good but not great 3/5

    By Aizhalee
    I love it has almost every awesome shows aired on television but not a big fan that it glitches a lot, and doesn’t remain at the same spot you left off every time you get off the app for a few seconds. Wish it would stay on the screen when you have to check on other apps. 3 / 5 stars
  • NEEDS Picture in Picture!!! 3/5

    By Cramster911
    Philo is great service but the iOS app is severely lacking the most basic need: Picture in Picture support!! Please allow us to background the video to multitask on our iPhone or iPad - this will keep us using your service!
  • Not worth it 1/5

    By crazysage16
    $25 a month. Might as well buy basic cable from somewhere for a little bit more. Hulu, Netflix, & Amazon prime are all cheaper at less than half the price and have way more shows and movies to watch. I thought I’d sign up just to watch walking dead but I can just as easily pay for an amc subscription, cancel anytime and pay less than half the price. Lower your prices and you’ll get more customers. Your prices are ridiculous for nothing but basic cable channels with tons of ads
  • Could be great!! 2/5

    By Genie2714
    Would have been a really great service had they allowed us to stream it tvs without chrome cast. Won’t even allow it on the apple adapter and they don’t support Air Play either🤷‍♀️ had to cancel cause I couldn’t watch it aside from on my phone & there are to many good apps out there that will allow various streaming ways. No app could be found on my tv for this app either and I have a new tv. Great idea anyway!
  • Lag lag lag 1/5

    By Reilavech
    So much lag it’s miserable to watch anything
  • It’s okay 3/5

    By Cici_Cera
    The issue I have with this app is that I’m not able to watch on it in picture to picture. I don’t like opening and closing the app and having to wait for it to load.
  • Review 5/5

    By MiyLawg
    Very good choice of shows. Fully entertained!!!
  • Buy it 5/5

    By jggyjouycc bnj
    fist I want to say thank for the low cheap price,I’m saving a lot 100 a month. Great channel people must have cut the price
  • Increased subscription fee??? $5 Really? 2/5

    By ShugLu
    I was with Philo before the increased subscription fee. $20/month wasn’t to bad I mean you still have to sit through 2-3 minutes of ads but it wasn’t bad for the price and what they offered. Now Philo wanna charge $5 extra a month for some DVR? Why not make it optional, why not have different packages that meet different needs? I never use DVR as I’m sure a lot of others don’t either. However, instead of making it optional you all choose to generalize it. It’s not good business. I’m sure I’ll find something cheaper.

    By coliseacausey
    They charged me 25$ without my knowledge, and i cant get a refund. I would not recommend this app to anyone!
  • Good enough 😏 5/5

    By Keemy Keemster
    Most of everything I like is on here -other than Teyana Taylor’s show on E!, other than that, in love
  • Needs more Channels 2/5

    By Koffee37
    Not enough channels nor content and I hate that you have to wait for it to show or you have to save to watch
  • All you need for entertainment 4/5

    By cmm472
    I tried Philo a couple of times before and returned because you have made some nice improvements. I was able to get the basic package plus the movie add-on services (all of them) and still pay less than what I paid for a subscription through my internet provider. For anyone who enjoys classic TV and older movies, it’s all available here. Hardly anyone likes ads, but it’s something we have to live with on live TV. If there were sports and network news, this would be a complete package. I’m still learning how to use the DVR and a couple of other features on my Roku, but this is a great service at an affordable price.
  • Good app! 4/5

    By Meatburgular
    Overall I like the app and service. Two things I hope improve in the future. 1. When going through the guide it would be good if the channel you are/were currently watching plays in the background while searching for something else to watch. 2. There needs to be a refresh button on the guide section. Sometimes when I open the app (Apple TV) it goes straight to the guide as that was the last place I was when closing the app out. Upon returning the next day, it goes to the guide section but shows what was going to be coming on for the time frame it was when I left instead of updating to what’s currently coming on now.
  • Left chat and 1/5

    By honest june
    As much as liked and recommended the services it disappoints me to say that their customer service and support was terrible. I was charged for almost a year after canceling and deactivating my account (email proof). I used the chat function and the agent left the chat after I had questions on how I was managed to be charged like that. And called in and was told that it must’ve been someone in my family with access to my old phone number- which was no longer in use at the time and no one in my family had access to.
  • Great app !! 5/5

    By Sh00tahhh
    Updates all my shows when new episodes air it has all the better channels sometimes late at night I watch reruns of Martin or all the great shows I watched as a kid definitely worth subscribing!!
  • 4 Anime ™ free app free anime 5/5

    By Braven Wyethidcnz
    4 Anime ™ Best app for anime streaming.
  • Love it! 5/5

    By lizzyann66
    We had to go to antenna because programming was so high. This is a great alternative.
  • Channels 2/5

    By nani.D77
    I don’t like the fact that because I forgot to enter my new credit card they raised my bill $5 more also most of the channels are nothing but very old movies vhs dosnt give me anything current it’s always old shows and it’s getting boring I am think of switching to something better
  • LG 1/5

    By /9876mia
    This app does not support LG TV I wish I would have known that prior to purchasing
  • Cancelled, after 6 mos. 3/5

    By thundergirl1234
    I only had Philo TV (& free DVR), to watch one show, in particular, but once the 'App' grew to huge-commercial breaks DURING DVR Playback, it became rather worthless,as the interruptions, diverted info, & enjoyment of the show. I, like 'tv,' on my own terms, & INTRUSIVE ads, are a reason to fully, 'quit the box,' no matter which media outlet is doing it.
  • Great but 4/5

    By Somona29
    Great price for the channels I’m getting. The only thing is Philo don’t have the option to airplay. But overall a great app. I would really like it if they could update the app so o could AirPlay.
  • Great at this price point 5/5

    By TheFeralKat
    Haven’t delved into enough but I like it so far
  • Obsessed 5/5

    By AshleyDixon
    Obsessed with this app!! Cancel hulu prime and everything else. This app is all you could possibly need!!!
  • So happy I found this and gave it a go!!! 5/5

    By Erin Halligan
    Philip is great for what I need. Has the channels I watch with my charter cable but saved me over 150$ a month! Wow…I’m super happy…just wished I knew about it years ago! Can’t beat 25$/month I mean come on guys. At least give the 7 day trial a try. Nothing to lose and everything to gain!
  • The Best 5/5

    By Michellegough
    Great service, value,& all the channels the you actually watch!!!! Definitely recommend anyone to subscribe.
  • Thanks. 5/5

    By blkcrwn22
    I’m really enjoying this application.
  • The ads are so obnoxious and frequent 1/5

    By LexiLou1031
    If you have to pay monthly for this service, the least y’all can do is allow people to skip the ads. At least with cable you’re able to do that
  • don’t get it 1/5

    By ifsigskgsotsogssif
    I got it to watch the MTV music awards and it said free trial so I didn’t think it would charge me till a week later but it charged me and took out $11 when it said one week free trial
  • No rewind and fast forward feature 1/5

    By Mavery4u
    The app is ok but compared to other streaming apps, it’s unbelievable that there is no rewind or fast forward feature and this drives me crazy!!!!. You literally have to pause the video take you finger and try to scroll to what your looking for but the thing moves so fast that you’ll miss the part you want to see. How hard is it to create something like Amazon Prime or YouTube whereby they have an easy 10 sec rewind and 10 sec fast forward feature on the videos in the app???
  • 4 Stars for Good Content But… 4/5

    By CRey87
    They need to catch up with basically ALL other TV/Streaming apps and allow the option to cast from phone to TV (in my case via AirPlay). For whatever reason, screen mirroring doesn’t work properly in the app. I can hear, but cannot see the picture. (I tested this in 2 other apps, and screen mirroring worked just fine). I enjoy the app overall, but this is a major downside for me.
  • Chelsea 5/5

    By chelsea doucette
    Put cbs and nbc and ABC and fox I love this thank you
  • What the heck 1/5

    By eyesthatrock
    If you are wanting tv and always calling them about issues this is the tv provider for you, always code 2 and they are always wanting you to delete the app and reinstall it do all there troubleshooting steps, works for a few hours and then you will be calling them back about the same issue. TheyWill tell you to clear the cache and Data works again for a few but again you will be calling them again for the same code, don’t waste your time
  • Great service, can be buggy at times 4/5

    By baileydrain
    Overall great app and pricing. I typically use this app to watch entertainment channels and MTV Classic. Be aware, however, that the app frequently has outages that corrupt recorded content. I record every single segment of MTV Classic with the DVR functionality and it typically has at least one hour of unwatchable content every 24 hours because the recording got corrupted somehow. I reached out to support and multiple occasions however Philo support doesn’t really seem to know the cause of the issue and has never reached back out with a solution, so that is a bit frustrating, but overall great user interface and a nice selection of channels
  • Very happy 5/5

    By Souherngal
    Great price and haven’t had any problems streaming. Love the unlimited dvr. Can’t beat the value
  • They hide the cancel subscription button 1/5

    By justwanttoleavethisreview
    I do not recommend Philo to anyone. They hide the cancel subscription button, possibly in hopes to keep people from canceling. I’ve tried on my IPhone, through Amazon since it’s on my FireTv and through their website. I’ve contacted their 24 hour chat and emailed them with no response as of yet. Been trying to cancel for a hour. Save the hassle and don’t join this if you ever plan to cancel.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Scathecat123
    Awesome possum
  • Jumbled and cumbersome 2/5

    By Annie’s Pro
    Half the stations play the same shows. The good stations have hardly any options. And just scrolling thru up and down and sideways is annoying and a waste of time.
