The absolute lowest-cost option on our list, Philo offers FYI without cable for a rock-bottom price of just $20/month. For that price, you’ll also get over 40 other cable TV channels.

Philo Pricing and Packages

Philo now includes one, $20 per month channel package that offers 58 channels. You’ll get FYI as part of the package.

58 Channels
7-day free trial
$20.00/ month

3 simultaneous streams

30-Day DVR

So why, then, is Philo so cheap? It’s simple: no sports channels and no local TV affiliates for Fox, ABC, CBS, ABC and the like. Because both local broadcasters and sports networks charge high fees to carry their channels, Philo is able to provide several dozen top entertainment networks for an incredibly low price.

For more information on Philo plans, check here.

Philo Channels

The cheap, $20/month service also offers History, Discovery, AMC, A+E, BET, BBC America, Comedy Central, HGTV, Viceland, Food Network, and more.

Philo Supported Devices

Philo’s biggest weakness is its app support. While there are dedicated apps for iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, and Android TV, there’s no native app for Android devices. You can still stream on Android devices (version 7.0 and up) using the Chrome web browser, but that will drain your battery much faster than a dedicated app.

The full list includes:

  • TV streaming media players: Apple TV (4th gen and up), Amazon Fire TV (all models), Chromecast and Roku (all current models)
  • Smart TVs: Android TV (5.0 and up)
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android (7.0 and up, Chrome browser), iOS (10.3 and up)
  • Gaming consoles: None
  • Desktop browsers: Most Mac and PC browsers

Check here for more information on Philo’s supported devices.

Philo Simultaneous Streams

Philo offers 3 simultaneous streams per account, and lets you create up to 2 user profiles.

Philo DVR

This service offers a cloud DVR with a 30-day expiration date on videos, but you’ll be able to record an unlimited number of shows during that time period. Separate profile users also get their own storage.

Check here to learn more about Philo’s DVR.

Philo On-Demand Library

Philo offers a large number of videos available for replay even if you didn’t save them to DVR. There’s a 72-Hour Rewind feature lets you watch almost any content that was previously aired within 3 days without having to take up any of your DVR space. Additionally, most channels offer a number of titles from their content libraries on-demand through the service. 

Your Philo login information will work with a large number of channels’ individual apps and websites, where you’ll find even more on-demand content.

AT&T TV Now rounds off our list for options to get FYI without cable, but we’ll be frank: it’s not a great option. Not only is this the most expensive method to get FYI without cable, but you’ll also find the DVR is fairly lackluster.

AT&T TV Now Pricing and Packages

There are several packages available through AT&T TV Now, although two are offered as the primary options:

A Note on Using the FYI App and Website

One of the best things about our modern streaming options is that most cable TV and streaming services allow you to log in to your provider through different channel apps and websites. This is also the case with FYI, but there’s a notable limitation to be aware of.

FYI lets you log in on its website and app, and this will let you stream without using up one of your simultaneous streams from your OTT subscription. However, through our research, we found that Sling TV users cannot connect their account to FYI’s website or app.

That means if you’re considering Sling, you may want to make this caveat part of your consideration when choosing between Sling Orange and Sling Blue.
