BEST option! 5/5
By Robert W Rogers
Here is the deal......
If philo manages to keep the price at $20 without hiking it then it’s the best possible live TV streaming service on the market right now. Without question.
Sure, some others have better features or options but for the price you get every thing that’s available anywhere else (minus local networks). •
•Over 50 channels, all the most popular ones included (again, minus the big 4)
•UNLIMITED DVR! 30 days, which is incredible!!
•On-Demand channels, which is better than a DVR when the selection is good.
•the interface is simple and easy to navigate.
•you can stream on up to 3 devices simultaneously! And it’s available on all the main devices (Apple TV, roku, IOS, Android)
And again..... $20 dollars people!!
Verses AT&T Now which is over $50 and a crappy on demand selection. Easily over $100 after ad ons.
Or AT&T Watch TV which is only $15 but around 35 channels. Not even sure it has a dvr.
Or Sling TV which use to be $20 but now caters to sports packages and easily over $40-50
Or Hulu Live which is around $60 for basic
The closest competitor in my book is YouTube TV which has all the locals and unlimited dvr for 9 months HOWEVER..... is at least $55 and easily over $70 for basic ad ons
That is basically your market at the moment. I didn’t mention Fubo TV because it’s a super expensive service easily over $80.
Your best bet for anyone, all ages, all backgrounds is this service right here.
PLEASE hold the price Philo!!!!
Will only let met so far 1/5
When I try to sign in the app closes
They need to make it able to connect to a cromecast but the app is lovely
Irritable app 1/5
They need to fix some of the issues the app has, although I admit the quality is amazing! the only thing is, is that if I click out of the app & come back to it, it NEVER goes back to where I was watching a show. I kid you not it always goes 40 minutes ahead of where I left watching a show & it does it every single time. It never leaves off to where I was watching & if they play ads it’s always a clip of the episode I’m watching & after the ad is over it then does it again where it automatically takes you 40 minutes past where you left off! Very annoying to deal with, the app is not that bad just needs quite a few adjustments.
Why am I paying $$20 a month to watch ads ?? The ads are like regular tv commercials !! I would give it 5 stars if I wasn’t payin for the 3-4 min ads
Great selection 5/5
I only wish nfl was on here !thats my only complaint great price great selection and quality!!!!!THANKS
Why I’m disappointed 2/5
By Update season 1
First I was really excited to have this app and it seemed like a great app and I could watch all my favorite shows I have been missing out on but every time I start watching a show Once I get back on Philo later the episodes are deleted and now I have no shows to watch because every show I save the episodes get deleted so it is a waste of money now I’ll start paying again once you guys keep the episodes on there .
Not ready for iOS 1/5
By More Tritone
No guide. Need a list view of channel schedules.
Can’t DVR a single episode
Can’t tag an episode to find/view later
No feedback if watched episode
No iOS documentation... only TV
Like your content. But, reluctant to subscribe because of the poor quality of the iPad App.
Please fix and update.
Going to delete 1/5
There is NO REASON I shouldn’t be able to hdmi out to my TV!!! Not everyone has or even wants a smart tv or Roku or any of that other crap! I have a phone and tv and should be to see it on the tv like EVERY OTHER APP! Was going to recommend but I’d rather go back to cable and a cord. It’s 2020 and this is such a disappointment.
There are way to many ads😑
To many 1/5
It’s. To many commercials like every second it’s one and I wouldn’t buy because on Tubi it’s less ads plus it’s free
Non responsive 3/5
I have to delete app every other day. Very glitchy lately.
Love the app but....... 3/5
Besides your phone an iPad wish this app was available on my smart tv! That would be perfect:)
Doesn’t work 1/5
Just loads all day. Nothing plays.
Great tv platform and price, but... 5/5
This package has to be one of the best deals in tv streaming available! That being said, when in the guide mode it’s really hard to see the channel labels to the left. Can I change that or can it be enlarged on your side? Also, will it ever offer local channels?
It was great... now it’s awful!! 1/5
By Brittnay :)
Why do none of my shows play? Since the update none of my shows will play without messing up.
Like it but... 2/5
I really like this app but right now I do not have so much money so I need to cancel my subscription and has been impossible. I’m trying to do it in so many ways and I couldn’t do it, it says I have to go to my account page but then, the only window it shows is payment option, i don’t know what to do
Good service 4/5
I’m in an area where WiFi is not available. I do have cell service and can stream from the app on my phone. However, the app doesn’t support playing from my cell to the TV using a HDMI adapter. It only plays the audio. The picture freezes on the first frame of play while audio continues. Hopefully you will support this in the future. Otherwise it’s a great service, and overall no other complaints. BEST value for your buck!
Too many ads not enough show/movie . The movies will cut off if I start them over due to the number of ads .
Great cable alternative 5/5
Philo is awesome! I’d love to see Tv One added to the channel lineup!
It’s great 5/5
When I first got it I was happy what I got and the shoes were amazing I would say it’s great
Awesome price but... 4/5
Okay so I love this app and it’s price however I’ve found many shows that I’d love to watch aren’t on the app for instance Two Broke Girls. I absolutely love this show and would love to watch it however not having a tv service has made this difficult. So if it’s possible could Philo get Two Broke Girls soon?
By Krystal Castillo Iris
All shows and movies are awesome .Butsucks that you don’t have a casting option for chrome cast 😏😏Hopefully this can be added and then I will most definitely purchase monthly.
Perfect to pair with local antenna! 5/5
I can’t believe I wasted so much time trying YouTube TV then Sling TV then Hulu with Live TV and then starting the cycle over again because I love one feature of one service or the channel lineup of the other or how the app works (or doesn’t) on this or that platform. I wished I had tried Philo 2 years ago!! Unlimited DVR, great apps on all platforms, and all the channels I want!! If Philo has the channels you want, you can’t go wrong at only $20. I may have to add another service during college football season (if that happens this year) but otherwise this is my dream service for the absolute best price. Well done Philo!
Great replacement for Cable TV! 4/5
I really like the new Philo model, it helps me save money and eliminate my cable bill all together. I’m able to watch my favorite channels without the extra fees that a traditional cable company can’t do. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to cable ever again.
Since I don’t care for live sports, this subscription model is perfect for me. I can use the app on different devices and create different profiles for the people in my household. I can save my favorite shows for easy access. They have on demand library content that will fill all your time while you’re stuck in the house. The DVR feature is better than my previous cable provider. Interface is clean and easy to navigate. Playback features feel intuitive and convenient even for new users.
The only thing that I would really like to have, is an easy fix (maybe it isn’t, I’m not an app developer) but I really would appreciate it if philo could run in the background if I’m trying to multitask on my tablet. I was hoping that I can minimize the screen and leave it playing in the background.
Overall, philo made it possible for us to cut our cable bill and still catch our favorite shows!
I hate it because it just just works in USA. Please make this app. If someone it’s not in USA, what they will do😡 they will remove it from their iPhone or iPad 😡😡😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬
Best cheap Provider👌👌 5/5
I’m super happy with the way DVR works. I love the amount of channels they provide!
I’m super happy with the quality of the product for the price! It’s perfect for the specific channels i stick to!👍 Specifically i love my 🆔Ch, my Spongebob marathons 🤣, Hallmark channels, OWN..., BBC, omg the list could go on lol!
Service has never given me any issues!
I liked it better when the going rate was $16/month. However,I will continue to be a happy camper as long as the price doesn’t go up!
Removing unwanted devices from my account 4/5
I really do like this app! The only issue I have is that I cannot remove unwanted devices from being able to access my account. I have let other people sign into my Philo account in the past & I would like to remove them from being able to do so.
I hate this app sue ing 1/5
By nd cbbc
This app made me pay for nothing I deleted and it steal sent things to me
Why all of a sudden the streaming is horrible? I cannot get through an episode of any show. I've been watching Teen Mom OG for three hours now....this one episode. Please fix this issue or I'm canceling after two years.
needs work 1/5
why can’t i cast??
Nice app...but Ads? 3/5
$20 a month per subscription but then I’m sitting through ads throughout that I can’t skip...if it was a free app I’d understand, but it’s kinda outlandish to charge $20 a month while sitting through ads every 15-20 minutes
They are lucky they have Drag Race 1/5
I only have this app for Drag Race otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it to my enemy half the time I don’t get picture or the videos just won’t load. Low quality and poor design lead to an overall bad experience. It can be great when it works but it’s too rare for a service that costs $20 a month.
Bad options 1/5
I don’t see why some things on this app you have to save first before to watching it and sometimes it don’t even work. Why can’t we watch every show and movie in the app if we have to pay for it every month?? That makes no sense to me😡
are you kidding!!! i spent $20 and still have to watch commercials!!! i want my money back!!!
I would rate this a negative number if I could 1/5
By JS Chancellor
I have already decided not to go past my free trial, but I downloaded the app just to leave this review. I got the trial initially in order to watch Good Bones season 3 & 4. I’m home sick with double pneumonia, and omg this streaming service is unbelievably frustrating. First, they’ve kept a handful of episodes out for live streaming only. As in, you have to look at a schedule for when those episodes are airing. Period. Then, it doesn’t let you rewind episodes you’ve already watched. I wanted to see the last ten minutes of one episode that I missed. Am I able to do that? Nope. I have to watch the whole thing again if I want to see those ten minutes.
Like I’m certain my blood pressure is up now. Who does this, then asks for outrageous fees every month. $16?! No, just no.
App Will Not Download 1/5
Sounded interesting but the app never downloaded for me so I canceled the subscription.
Doesn’t work 2/5
I love the programming and the price is awesome, but I guess you get what you pay for. It does not stream well through my fire cube, I get to watch for about 2 seconds and then wait for it to reload. Bummer.
Poor quality 1/5
This is the worst app available for watching anything. Commercials were ridiculous since I never finished the movie I was watching. It felt like it was taking forever when in actuality it was. The movie was 2 hours but ran 6 minute commercials per 10 minute of movie time. That is insane! Do not waste your time or money! Plus I noticed some stuff isn’t even available to watch! Why have it posted at all if no one can watch the content? Not happy and surely not worth $20 month!!!
Worst Customer Service 2/5
Of all the pay channels I have subscribed to after cutting the cord, Philo had been my favorite. I watched it solely when I watched TV. I started noticing though that they are cutting most of my channels short. Two of my favorite channels to watch are TLC and MTV. Their hour long episodes end up being 35-40 minutes and I never see the end of the episode! I have emailed and gotten no response, tried to message on Facebook to no avail and finally I posted on their FB wall. I checked a day later to see if they had responded and they had deleted it! I purchase a lot of shows because I watch them over. I may cut Philo and just start purchasing shoes via Apple or Amazon. The other issue is that while watching on Apple products the shows glitch out and kick me out of the episode. I try to go back in and it sends me to a different episode and when I try to start over it won’t allow me to return to said episode. I also have issues watching season 1 specifically on Animal Planet shows. It feels like Philo has gotten too big to listen to their subscribers.
No AirPlay 4/5
I enjoy the app however I would like if I can airplay it directly to my smart tv
Not great 2/5
There’s a glitch with the DVR feature. I love MTVs The Challenge, I DVR it but basically every other episode playback doesn’t work so I have to uninstall the app and reinstall it for it to work. Lame. Fix it please.
It’s a SCAM! 1/5
By The Real Zen Boy
Worked for a couple of days and then stopped working. Called customer service and they hung up on me. It’s a rip off. Will be filing a complaint with Apple for the scam.
Terrible UI, No AirPlay Support 1/5
Literally every other steaming service works better.
Good Product 3/5
I like the service and the variety they offer but almost 5 min commercial breaks is just to much for me and to frequent. If you weren't paying it wouldn't be so bad. I think Im sticking with hulu after my month.
Way too many ads
Pay to watch ads 1/5
An app where you pay a bunch of money to watch a bunch of ads. Paid TV shouldn’t have ads.
Love Philo 5/5
When I knew that I would have to let my DirecTv go, I cried. I discovered Philo through a Roku app and found most of my favorite channels. Thanks for being so affordable! Just one thing.... please add TVOne and Bounce TV.🤗🤗
There are commercials that are like going on forever. I do love that crime shows but I'm use to tv without commercials or being able to speed by them. That why I gave one star only
