Ratings and Reviews
Only thing missing? The Guide!!!
So I rarely write reviews, but I was hoping this one could stand out to the developers as a suggestion. Upon installing this app I loved the fact that they had such a great channel lineup. They also have Vh1, which most streaming services don’t have. (I lovvveeee Vh1 lol).
The only issue I have is that they don’t have a standard guide. I’d like to go to my guide and see all the channels, but also ALL of the shows and times there as well. With this app you must follow a long process “Live>Select The Channel You Want with *>More on this channel” and you must do this for each individual channel you want to look at. When just surfing channels or looking to find something new or upcoming , an easy platform would be better.
Otherwise, the app is great, affordable and I finally get my favorite channel!!! Highly recommended.
Great Product Love It
This app is amazing! I just got the app I tried it out it’s so easy to use very user-friendly. It’s much cheaper than dish and I get all the channels that I really wanted. This app is worth every dollar. My contract with dish expires in October. I can’t wait to cancel them. I love this app and I am so happy that I found this app. The picture quality is superb with no glitches or loading. This app is easy to use on both the phone and on Roku. I don’t think there is anything that I don’t like about Philo. I can see myself being a long time Subscriber to their service. If you want to save money and can live without the sports channels then this is the perfect solution for you. What I did for local channels was I bought an over the air antenna. I’m connecting that to Clearstream and I can access those channels from the Clearstream app on Roku. That’s my solution to the rip off artists who work in the cable companies. Thank you Philo for providing this amazing solution keep up the good work.
I rarely take the time to write reviews. However, Philo deserves one - all for good reasons. We have tried all of the currently available streaming services and Philo is the cream of the crop. It has a simple and clean UI, an intuitive user experience, great features - all at a great price.
Having said that, what really puts Philo over the top is it’s steaming quality. We have been using the service since the day it launched and we have yet to experience a streaming issue - no stuttering, no pixelation, no freezing - no nothing. Every other service we have tried has these issues (to some extent) even though they have been on the market for months or even years. The designers, architects and engineers behind this service deserve a huge pat on the back!
If Philo offers the channels you want, I can not recommend this service more highly!
