Philo: Live & On-Demand TV app reviews

  • 1 day trial 1/5

    By whybother888
    I signed up yesterday for my 7 free day trial! It doesn’t exist today! So very disappointed! What happened?
  • Philo 5/5

    By cna chic
    It very Gud to have
  • Almost perfect 4/5

    By Cd.pegasus
    I like Philo because it has the channels I am missing on other streaming services. The only thing keeping it from getting five stars is the sound cannot be controlled by my Apple Siri remote. I have to pull out my phone or iPad to control the volume. Everything else works fine.
  • Expensive, ads, and less than seamless quality. 1/5

    By sophist0007
    Philo costs $20 per month and you will still have to watch ads. They serve 20 minutes of ads for an hour long show, so you’re watching 1 minute of ads for every 3 minutes of regular programming. Isn’t this supposed to be different from cable? My viewing history is often not saved at the correct point, so I’ll have to sift through to figure out what I’ve already watched and often have to watch a set of ads, again, in order to do so. I do not recommend Philo. I won’t be repurchasing.
  • Annoying glitches 3/5

    By rocko2004
    Great concept but every once in a while it glitches and anything you stream just plays audio and screen is blank. Sooooo annoying !!
  • Great Channels, But Service Not for Mobile Data 2/5

    By 8ruttaly H0nest
    I am going back to YoutubeTV, which is a shame since I like the channels on Philo more and the App is easier to navigate. Unfortunately, the app does not allow you to reduce image quality to reduce cellular data on my phone, so that is a deal-breaker for me.
  • Philo owes me nothingg baeby 5/5

    By RekaMob
  • Philo is amazing 5/5

    By Alicia26378
    Philo has all of the shows that I love and then some. The price is incredibly hard to beat!! Thank you Philo!! I get my shows for the fraction of the price!!
  • Very good 5/5

    By pedrodrop84
    Affordable,good quality and unlimited dvr! The only downside is that they took it out the tv guide on the iPhone :/ on android the tv guide is still there!
  • Love app but 4/5

    By Simlady
    Would’ve gave this app 5 stars but why don’t the app have a guide on iPhone and iPad am I missing something.everything seem to be just jumbled up together.channels not in order.please make a guide for this app other then missing guide app works great
  • Picture in Picture please 1/5

    By PlutotvLOVER

    By f0xyd33
    If it sounds too good to be true... 99.9% of the time it is. No such thing as 1 week free trial. You get locked out after 2 days and 3/4th of the stuff listed isn’t available until it is shown live. So why list it as available? Total rip off. Subscribe to the minimal cable per month and pick the 10 channels you watch the most. Less of a hassle and you save a penny. I prefer someone that has a reputation that I can trust and don’t have to worry about fine print. Good luck!
  • Too Confusing 1/5

    By Book Dawg
    Philo is too confusing. You can’t watch shows that you want to watch when you want to watch them. The controls are different on different devices. How do you record a show on an iPad...for an example.
  • Love It! 5/5

    By IDeann
    I finally separated from cable....After reviewing different streaming services I decided on Philo because it offered most of the channels I must have at a great price..
  • My favorite streaming service 5/5

    By G UNITE
    Philo is the best streaming service ever!! The price is great and the amount of channels you can watch is amazing. I wouldn’t trade this service for any other, I love it!!
  • free anime app 5/5

    By 訾殷枫
    many ads and many fees ,i dont like it .4ANIME app Is The Best to watch animes.
  • You want free anime 5/5

    By 泥羽程驷刚
    4ANIME Is better , i tired many apps but 4anime Still the best one.
  • 4ANIME free Anime App 5/5

    By Angleica Tubridyyx
    4ANIME is better i can watch any anime for free no hidden fees.
  • 4ANIME 5/5

    By Heber Nobes
    everything is paid here , 4ANIME app is the best i can watch all anime for free
  • THE BEST! 5/5

    By Indyindiaa
    Philo is the best app ever and such a great price you can’t beat that! I also downloaded the app on my fire stick so now I don’t have to only watch it on my phone. Hopefully more channels can be added in the future! I been using Philo for 6 months now.
  • It’s great 3/5

    By RareSweetLove
    It’s great for everything you get for the price the only thing I don’t like is the fact that every 2 mins there is a commercial ad and most of the time it’s the exact same ad over and over so you'd think that for the price you pay you have the option on skipping over the ad. It makes it kinda hard to get into a movie or a show with all the ads every two mins.
  • This is not live 2/5

    By nariega
    I don’t understand why this is not live it says it’s alive but it is not if I switch channels of the commercial or any place in a show and go watch something else for 15 minutes it comes right back to that same commercial or spot in the show as when I left earlier. And I have been on the phone with your help line for too much time trying to figure this out resetting my fire stick etc. it doesn’t work I think if something starts at eight and ends at nine it should start at eight and end at nine
  • Apple TV app 1/5

    By $$LUNA$$
    Says “Apple TV App” supported but it isnt. Called customer service and they apalogized for the wrong info(even though it still shows apple tv app supported) so i canceled my subscribtion. I was pumped ip about yhis too. Its s shame that there loosing budiness and money because of 1 app that doesnt support it. What a shame!!
  • I love it but.. 4/5

    By notabasicbih
    You pay way too much to not have full 1-.. whatever season and to have ads that can be 5 mins long, why can’t we just have 2 min ads? And some of the shows I watch are only 2 seasons that are not from the start for example, I’ll have season 4 & 5 but not 1-5!! It frustrates me and I feel like I should pay a lil more less for that!
  • Update needed 1/5

    By jWig
    can you please support picture-in-picture on mobile devices in the near future, along with a redesigned app that allows current content to continue playing while browsing the channel listing? i love what you guys have to offer, but the functionality of the service seems to be years behind other streaming platforms.
  • Please put the guide on iPhone and iPad app! 4/5

    By Cblwolf
    Love Philo!! I love the interface on AppleTV and Roku where the guide is available. The “live” function isn’t great on these mobile apps, as it doesn’t allow you to look ahead at all. Please add this to the mobile apps!! Then it would be perfect and 5 stars for sure!!
  • No casting? 1/5

    By Nateclaflin
    No casting? Really? What decade is this
  • Philo is the best 5/5

    By Bigrick827
    I absolutely love Philo, not only does it saved me over a hundred dollars a month, I can save movies and tv shows I want to watch later, there is none of the interruptions that I had with spectrum. Thank you Philo.
  • Casting 2/5

    By jessiswear
    I like this app but I can’t cast it to my tv so it’s pointless for me to purchase. Thanks for the trial I am enjoying it.
  • No iPhone to TV via HDMI support 3/5

    By Big Snap-Daddy
    Philo works great on my iPhone 8+; however, I ‘be found my 70+ year old eyes get tired watching that small screen. So, presently (with AT&T TV NOW service) I connect my iPhone to my TV via Lightening Adaptor and HDMI cable. Unfortunately, Philo doesn’t support this configuration. When connected, the sound plays on the TV, however, the video does not. The only screens in Philo app seen on the TV are the app screens and program control screen (pause-play controls)... but no program streaming video. Phili, Is it a possibility to incorporate the use of using iPhone with Lightening Adaptor & HDMI cable to TV in the future?
  • For the price it’s worth it 5/5

    By sirgduhon
    It comes in handy for me at night at work and to the fact it was available on all my TVs and devices was even more perfect. The guide could use some work on the devices to where we can see an actual guide than just the photos and something that allows up to see what’s in our dvr instead of us having to search for it. Other than that GET PHILO
  • Nice app for a well balanced service 5/5

    By FedericoD
    The app works really well. It’s snappy, video quality is good and seems well rounded. As for the service itself, the channels selection as really good at this price level. In my case I have Philo for the cord-cutter needs and then some of the other on-demand streaming behemoths to complete the deal. I believe the end result is way better and much cheaper than what I was paying for basic cable. Keep up the good work.
  • Trash 1/5

    By catrice e.
    I’m trying out the 7 day free trial to see if it’s any good so I can do away with cable being that I barely watch tv. I wouldn’t recommend it. All I’ve seen is about 20 ads in less than ten minutes approximately 3 minutes long. No I’ll pass on this one
  • Not good 1/5

    By Not sure idk yet
    Had to cancel because I cannot stream on my TV
  • Almost perfect 3/5

    By Say_Les
    I love this app it has access to so many of my favorite shows! However I was very dissatisfied with the fact that I wasn’t able to link the app to my cell phone or smart TV. When I checked the FAQ however wasn’t much help and for this reason I could only rate it a 3 otherwise it would’ve been a 5 star rating!
  • Too many ads 1/5

    By Chrissie2245
    Way to many ads have an option to cancel them
  • Ok app 3/5

    By jusmark
    Woulf be better if inside the app u can beam to tv or better yet if the app was available on tvs
  • Philo rocks!! 5/5

    By Imdumbforgivingreview
    This channel is tight y’all!! They keep it fresh and moving❤️❤️❤️
  • Ads 3/5

    By Stess01
    Would pay extra to not see ads like other streaming apps. Love the service but do not like the ads!
  • Philo Best kept secret 5/5

    By Val Randolph
    I never heard anyone say this before but I think that philo is streamings Best kept secret because it’s a greatStreaming Service it has A lot of the channels that I like all the different types. But you don’t see it everywhere and you don’t hear about it everywhere. But maybe that’s good because if it was everywhere it would not have the channels I like they would have the same type of stuff that is on the other streaming services
  • Commercials 2/5

    By Mitziminsoon
    To many commercials in a single episode of everything. We pay a fee for this tv channels and you make a fortune off commercials. Less fee or less commercials. I’m not sure if I will continue my subscription much longer. Also to much waiting while the shows come in with all the streaming apps available to much buffering. And it’s not my device it’s the service. Thank you.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Agirl2017
    This streaming service was the BEST decision I made...😍😍
  • Commercials 3/5

    By Soupshady
    There are so many commercials it’s almost worth waiting a year for some shows to end up on Netflix/Hulu. An hour/hour and a half long show ends up being two hours. You start to wonder how much more you have to watch before the episode ends.
  • Affordable way to watch TV! 5/5

    By nooriie88
    Love Philo, has all my favorite shows, plus with the unlimited DVR I can catch up whenever.
  • Something to watch 5/5

    By TV Winedown
    I’m not a huge tv watcher, but around the holidays I was home more and wanted something other than news to watch. Philo has been a good addition. It is low cost, there’s DVR and the app works well. In fact, I don’t recall having issues with the app.
  • Can’t use Chromecast 3/5

    By Kaybur92
    Only thing I don’t like about Philo is no espn no local channels and I can’t use the casting feature for a Chromecast through an iPhone app only through an android app and I don’t have an android
  • Can’t stream screen Mirror, or smartcast on TV. 3/5

    By jojo28_
    App is great and all but you can’t screen mirror on my big tv. I use my phone and would love to cast the show on my TV. I have a Vizio Vseries however its like it’s copyrighted because all i get is a black screen on my tv and it continues to play on my phone. Would he higher if we could mirror the show on the tv. But guess not.
  • Channels 3/5

    By Daseymay
    I don’t like that I can’t scan through the channels.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Saieshia
    I finally made the decision to cut cable and pay for streaming since I only watch 5 channels. I was elated to see that Philo had those 5 channels so I went from paying over $100 for cable to $20. I don’t see myself going back to cable any time soon.
