  • Excellent

    By cmm472
    Philo is a very good service and the price is affordable for those of us who cut the cord in the first place in order to get rid of a big bill. The variety of channels is good with quite a few movies, I enjoy the channels that air classic TV programs. The DVR/save feature is helpful to fast forward through the ads. I like having access to the TV anywhere apps. I’ve canceled all my subscriptions except for Philo and use free apps for local and network news, Tubi TV, PBS and Hoopla from my library. The channel guide and general layout on Roku is are easy to use, thanks for the good work!
  • FINALLY an iPad Version.....sadly, still lacking

    By DawnGP143
    While you do get a bunch of channels for the money, and they have FINALLY made an iPad compatible app so that you don’t have to look sideways at your iPad while in landscape, unfortunately, there still is not a good guide in this app, and that is something that I would really like to see. Also, need the split screen and picture in picture on the iPad app. Lastly, the ability to mirror from my iPhone to Apple TV is a necessity.
  • Channel lineup order

    By Train builder
    Since the last update the channel lineup is haphazard. Please put the channels back in alphabetical order.
  • Love it! But could use complete full screen for iPhones without a home button.

    By NikoleElle
    Loving today’s update. Works great on PC, iPhone and Apple TV. Only thing that’s missing is complete full screen on iPhones without a home button. PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN. SO MUCH SCREEN IS GOING TO WASTE! Been requesting full screen for about a year now. 😊
  • The IOS App.

    By Jamiecmontes
    I love Philo !! I love the price and only one choice and get everything. Now the Roku guide should be the same as the Firestick guide. And the iOS live tv should be replaced with a guide then click on a channel that way it would be easier to see what’s on ahead of time too also if the program is NEW then put NEW on the guide at the time it’s on. Thank you.
  • Works great for me on any device

    By Ath3rone
    I’ve had the other options and this one works great for me. Get all the channels I really need and some extra. Can’t beat the price and the interface is decent.
  • App crashes A LOT

    By emmilyzz
    I have used this app for the past few days and watched several episodes of PD Cam. The app has crashed at least twice during each 20-ish minute episode. I am also unable to stream the shows on my mobile device and send it to my Apple TV to be watched on a bigger screen. These issues are quite a deal breaker for me for a streaming service. Other than my two major concerns, the app itself is user friendly and has a wide variety of shows to watch instantly or in live time.
  • So frustrating

    By Cynroles
    I love the idea of this app but it ALWAYS has issues. I use the app on the newest version of Apple TV. Almost every single day I get an error message saying it took too long loading the video (even if the video starts playing a few seconds) . I have to reset Apple TV to get the app to work properly. It’s not worth $22 a month to have such a terrible user experience. I have no issues with any other streaming app on my Apple TV. Please fix the issues or I will be forced to delete and stop paying for the app.
  • Do better

    By TSM87
    Why don’t you guys have a mirroring option??? So pointless to have you guys without that
  • False advertising

    By GoodLuckNatalie
    I only signed up because they were the only subscription service to offer law and order criminal intent. And then it’s not available and when it becomes available it will only be after my free trial ends and only one episode at a time. I asked customer support to cancel and he said I could still watch it using my philo account if I downloaded the we tv app and then signed in through philo. So I did that, and criminal intent wasn’t even an option. So I canceled.
