Channel add-ons

As of June 2020, you can add Starz and MGM+ as additional channels with Philo, with an additional charge per month.

You’re out of luck if you want to watch content from networks like Showtime and Max. There’s no option to subscribe to those networks on Philo.

Philo may be right for you if you mostly watch entertainment and lifestyle channels. However, if you want local news, sports and other channels not offered by Philo, you may be better off with a different package.

When was the last time Philo raised its prices?

Philo's last price increase was on June 8, 2021. At this time, the price for new subscribers jumped from $20 to the new monthly price of $25. As part of this price increase, though, all new $25/month users got access to a free, unlimited 12-month DVR service.

Before this, Philo had technically never raised its prices. When it launched, it offered both a $16/month plan and a $20/month plan. However, it eliminated the $16/month plan in early 2019. After this, everyone had to subscribe to the new plan.

Given the fact that its last price hike was so recent, it’s unlikely that Philo's cost will jump in price in the near future, so you probably won’t have to worry about any additional cost increases any time soon.

Does Philo have extra hidden fees?

No. Unlike a traditional cable subscription, there are no surprises when it comes to subscribing to Philo. You won’t ever have to pay any fees for things like equipment and installation, and there are no penalties or fees for canceling your subscription. You will only ever pay for the cost of the service, with absolutely no hidden fees or other costs and penalties.

Does Philo offer a free trial for new users?

Yes. If you’re a new user, you can get a free 7-day trial of Philo. In addition, you can even sign up and use the service for a few days before you have to enter your credit card details.

After 48 hours, though, you’ll need to enter your card details to unlock the remaining 5 days of your free trial. However, you won’t be charged as long as you cancel before your trial ends.
