  • Great price & streaming, but needs work!

    By Amber611
    I rarely write reviews with being very ill, and bedridden with very bad breathing difficulties. First off I do love Philo’s quality streaming and it’s an Awesome price too, especially with so many channels!!! The app though REALLY needs work with the channel guides!!!! I don’t have a TV right now so I only use the app! To record/DVR things ahead of time I have to scroll to the time/day, and then tap on the movie/tv show. Then it goes to the movie/show’s own page, and you can record or read about it. I would LOVE to be able to record/DVR just by tapping or double tapping the movie/show, or clicking a + or some button please on the main channel page!!! Not to mention the worst part is after setting the movie/show to record or just reading about the show/movie summary, you have to go back to the channel page, and then BOOM (with no choice!) you are no longer at the future schedule/time/day!!!!! You are sent back to the current time/day, making you have to scroll ALL THE WAY BACK FORWARD again to where you were, if you want to record multiple things ahead of time!!!! This is not only annoying but Extremely Frustrating, especially since the extra constant scrolling over and over again, really aggravates my already bad breathing issues!!!!! :( Definitely not user friendly for me, and I’d only guess annoying for everyone else!!!! PLEASE try to fix this, or I’ll sadly have to go to another streaming service! Thank you.
  • Love it

  • News

    Philo is outstanding. It has all the channels that I need. For the price I can afford. Thank You! FINALLY! A streaming service that doesn’t add all sorts of channels you don’t watch for an affordable price. BUT I was wondering if you will ever have a NEWS package? My husband needs FOX business and FOX news. Will it ever happen? I would pay the extra 5 dollars for that package just to make him happy. AND what happened to the guide on ipad? I had one when I did the free trial. Now I can't find one now that I downloaded new app.
  • Love!!

    I really enjoy this app. I just wish the DVR function would save my recorded movies for 60 or 90 days. (A lot of times 30 days isn’t enough since I regularly work long hours).
  • BEWARE — they charged me immediately— no 7-day trial

    By TonyaToo
    Checked my account today. I started the “trial” two days ago. The $20 is already deducted. It was taken the day after I started the supposed trial. Just beware in case you didn’t plan to have funds taken from your account. I had planned to keep the service, but might reconsider because they did not do the free trial. That created a bit of ill-will toward Philo. Otherwise, a decent option when you don’t need locals, news or sports. The channel logos on the TV screen are extremely small. The iPad doesn’t have a guide at all. That’s a major flaw. I like how shows can start either at the beginning or Live no matter when you tune in. That is a great option in Philo. I don’t know about DVR yet. They have a really good selection of channels for the money. Since I’ve PAID for a month, I will see if I see any improvements. Otherwise, it’s off to HULU Live TV I go.
  • Mixed emotions

    By Heather35
    Great app but SO many ads/commercials I can hardly stand to watch anything.
  • A bit disappointed

    By Jcv213
    I really really wanted to be able to watch all the episodes of mystery diagnosis on here but this app continues to tell me that the series isn’t available. I really hope they allow episodes of this series soon.:(
  • Can’t cast. Can’t mirror

    By Nobody you know 87
    The service is fine, but this app is useless. Can’t cast to a TV or mirror the screen.
  • Commercials?

    By amberbbbb4
    So I love the shows but if I am paying $20 a month I DON’T WANT COMMERCIALS!
  • Best $20 bucks I spend each month!

    By Ms. Jaida
    I love Philo tv! The fact that it DVRs everything that comes on is a worth the price. I don’t ever have to worry about missing tv shows, movies etc. I can watch at my leisure!!
