Philo’s low-cost service is just $25 per month for 60+ channels and it allows you to stream on up to 3 devices at once. As a result, you may be wondering just which devices you can use with Philo. This service has a small but growing number of supported devices which include the Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and more. Here’s your complete list of Philo’s supported devices.
You can use the Philo with all of the following devices:
- TV streaming media players: Apple TV (4th gen and up), Amazon Fire TV (all models), Chromecast, 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), Fire Tablets (OS 5.0 or higher)
- Desktop browsers: Most Mac and PC browsers
Philo is limited to the devices listed above and on its device support page. The biggest limitation will be for Android users, as there is currently no dedicated app available in the Google Play Store. You will need to stream through the built-in Chrome browser on your Android device, which can be fairly battery-intensive.
You may also be able to run Philo on some older devices or outdated operating systems beyond the recommended versions, but you may experience some functionality limitations in the process.
Philo is one of the best options for subscribers who want a streaming service focused completely on entertainment channels (and some news). Philo’s low cost is because it carries no sports channels.
Instead, you’ll get several dozen popular and unique entertainment TV channels, some of which are difficult to find on other streaming services. Many Philo users like to combine this service with another cord-cutting option, like YouTube TV, in fact. You can test Philo out with a free 7-day trial.
Philo’s app features a TV guide you can use at any time, but there’s a limitation. You can’t view the TV guide while viewing your live content on most devices. Philo’s TV guide also lacks many additional details about each program available on its channels, such as color-coding for content type.
Using the Flixed TV Guide for Philo, you can view Philo’s current live-streaming schedules and upcoming programming by filtering by date. Our TV guide also gives more complete information about each episode and program that airs on Philo. You can also use our free Philo channel guide on any device with a web browser, even if you don’t have a Philo account.
Other Great Streaming Services
Philo works on a large number of devices, but it may lack support for your favorite device. You’re not out of options, though. You can supplement Philo with Disney+ for on-demand content (and a larger number of supported devices). If you want an expanded channel package, Hulu + Live TV also offers a great experience and works on more devices, including the Nintendo Switch. ESPN+ now comes included with Hulu + Live TV, but it can also be subscribed to on its own and it makes a good pairing with Philo if you want an option that offers sports at a low cost.
