Philo is a relatively new (2017) live TV streaming app with a built-in DVR function. If you are like me, you have either already cut the cable cord or are considering doing so. With a mix of tv and streaming apps, you can now watch anything your heart desires without that expensive monthly cable. Philo combines the ease of streaming what you want, when you want, with the live TV viewing option that is often missed when you get rid of cable. With its low cost and more pros than cons, Philo is the streaming service not to miss this year.
Philo is available as an app on multiple streaming devices, including Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Roku, and Chromecast. You can also access Philo via any smart TV running Android 5.0 or later, on your Android or iPhone, or most PCs and Mac browsers.
Philo offers a free 7-day trial so that you can try out the service before you subscribe. You can cancel at any time during the free trial, or the trial will be upgraded to a paid subscription after the trial period. But not to worry — with Philo there is no contract and if you don’t like it you can easily cancel at any time.

Is a Philo free trial worth it?
Philo is an excellent option for anyone considering cutting-the-cord or for someone who’s looking to expand their streaming options. Philo provides the much-missed live TV option and provides access to cable networks that aren’t available on other streaming services.
The free trial is worth it so that you can find out all that Philo has to offer at a great price. You can try out the add-on channels Starz and Epix for free as well and decide which ones you want to keep at the end of the trial.
