You can use Philo natively on web browsers, as well as through dedicated apps for iOS devices, Amazon Fire TV and TV Stick, Apple TV, and Roku. There’s currently no support for any gaming consoles, however, and Android users will have to resort to the web browser instead of a dedicated app.

  • Smart TVs: Android TV (5.0 and up)

Check here to learn more about Philo’s DVR.

Philo On-Demand Library

Philo saves and allows playback for most new TV episodes for up to 72 hours, even if you didn’t record them. That gives you a rather beefy on-demand library most of the time. Beyond that, many networks offer an extended amount of content for longer periods of time through Philo. Many of Philo’s channels also participate in the TV Everywhere authentication program, which lets you use your Philo account information to access even more content through those channels’ websites and apps.

Watch Vikings on DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now is currently one of the most-used. That said, it’s still a bit slim on the features and the cost is higher than every other option on the list. It’s not necessarily the best choice for anyone hoping to access Vikings live, but it’s still one to consider.

DirecTV Now Pricing and Packages

DirecTV Now primarily advertises its two base packages, MAX and PLUS. However, if you want to get History Channel and Vikings, you’ll need to purchase the $93 per month Entertainment package. For most cord-cutters, that’s a price that may not be worth it.

To learn more about DirecTV Now’s pricing and packages, click here.

DirecTV Now Channels

DirecTV Now ultimately has the largest number of channels with any service if you go all out. You’ll also pay over $100 per month if you do. Still, the cheapest option offers every major local broadcast network in most areas, as well as popular cable networks, including HGTV and AMC.
