Can’t beat the quality/price/channels and support

I don’t leave reviews very often, but thought this might come in handy for someone (perhaps fellow apes) that research as much as I do. I could not recommend Philo any higher!! The user interface is seamless across every platform. Whether streaming on my smart TV, laptop, or phone, there are absolutely no hiccups between stopping on one device and resuming at the same point on a new one. In terms of navigation, it’s so simple that even apes love using it. I was nervous about cancelling my cable and only having Philo, but as soon as I made the change, my reservations were gone. Philo is a game changer! It’s been able to help me budget better while not sacrificing what I love, which is TV shows! And crayons.. and tendies. I like the app.

Thank you so much for the amazing review!


Add more channels and allow people to watch shows that have previously aired

This app is so good because it has a lot of channels and shows that I love to watch but it’s lacking in some ways. For example you should be able to watch show that have previously aired just in case you missed an episode or want to watch a movie, I don’t know why philo allows a certain amount of channels to let you watch previously aired shows or movies, plus it dosent even tell you when you are allowed to watch it when it airs on live tv. And another concern I had was that there is no Cartoon Network channel on philo. Why? You guys have add ons for starz and epix but why no Cartoon Network or showtime? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And the last thing I wanted to add is why do some channels not have all the seasons? For example jersey shore only has season 3 and 4, and black ink crew only has season 8 and 9, dosen’t really make sense. But overall I like the app and all the good shows it had but it needs a lot of improvements. I’m not gonna pay $25 a month just for a couple of channels when half of them you cant even watch what previously aired, some of the seasons are not even available and some channels that most people enjoy aren’t even there… i’d rather just stick to sling unless philo changes their game.

Appreciate the feedback! Normally what's available for content is decided among the network channels themselves. We do offer unlimited DVR so that you can record your shows whenever more episodes air! We're always looking to expand our lineup, so stay tuned for any new announcements. :)

Love philo

I picked Philo after taking a good look at what I actually watched on cable. I discovered that there were only a few channels that I actually watched. I was totally wasting my money plus cable was always raising my costs every month. It was a little stressful cutting out cable. I researched the ruku idea and found subscriptions that I could add that had a channel for every program we watched. The only one was Philo. I’m adjusting to missing my favorite news channels but Philo is great. I could not be happier with the hundreds of dollars it saves me. And I mean hundreds. I’m sorry that I’ve wasted so much money all of these years. Thank you Ruko and Philo.

Thank you for sharing your satisfaction with Philo! We're grateful to hear we were able to provide a solution for cutting the cord :)
We're always working on adding more channels; it's just a matter of time & we've got your request for more news channels down.
