Philo is a new, bare bones live TV service that lets you watch Nickelodeon and all kinds of other cable channels online. It’s the best choice if you don’t like the idea of spending more than $20 on TV entertainment.

Philo Pricing and Packages

A subscription to Philo costs $20. That makes it one of the cheapest options out there for watching cable TV live without a traditional cable TV subscription.

Philo Channels

The base plan comes with 58 channels. There used to be an upgrade plan that lets you get more channels, but Philo seems to have merged that upgrade into its core plan. Nickelodeon is included in the lineup along with lots of other great picks.

Philo Supported Devices

With apps for iPhone, Android, Chromecast, Roku, Philo has good app support. There is one minor downside, though: the Android mobile app doesn’t play live streams. You can still watch Philo on an Android phone, but you have to use your mobile Chrome browser to do it.

  • 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).

Nick

On Nick, you’ll find clips and episodes from hit Nickelodeon shows like Spongebob Squarepants, The Loud House, Henry Danger and others. Like Nick Jr., the Nick website’s interface is super simple and kid-friendly.

Nick at Nite

The Nick at Nite website spotlights classic sitcoms of shows like Full House, Friends and The Fresh Prince of Bel-air. There aren’t any videos, though — only animated gifs and a TV schedule.

The Nick App

Though promotional literature for the Nick app suggests that it puts “the best of Nickelodeon at your fingertips,” its focus is clearly on kids and teens. There doesn’t seem to be any Nick at Nite content on the app.

The latest update to the Nick Android app lets you watch every season of various shows including Henry Danger, Game Shakers, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and others.

Along with its on-demand library of video content, there are various games you can play on the Nick app. Titles include Super Brawl World, Basketball Stars 2, Destruction Truck Derby and Block Party 3.

In addition to Google Play, the Nickelodeon app is available on iTunes, Roku and Amazon.

Nickelodeon’s Nick app has mostly positive reviews. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

“So cool. I love watching all free episodes of my favorite shows like Henry danger and game shakers. If you’re a big Nickelodeon fan, then this is the perfect for you to put on your favorite shows!“
