Philo is a newer internet TV service, and it focuses exclusively on entertainment and lifestyle content, without any expensive sports networks. This allows it to offer a pared-down TV package for an extremely low price, and with great features. Here’s what you should know about Philo.

Philo Pricing and Packages

Philo offers only a single package of channels, which will cost you $20/month, and comes with 56+ entertainment and lifestyle-focused channels, including Paramount Network. Learn more about this package here.

Philo Channels

You’ll get Paramount Network with Philo, as well as plenty of other top-notch entertainment and lifestyle networks like Lifetime, Food Network, DIY Network, The Science Channel, and MTV/MTV2, as well as The Cooking Channel, MTV Live, Logo, and a few other channels.

As mentioned, Philo does not offer any local broadcast stations such as NBC, ABC, or Fox, and also does not contain any sports channels. Learn more here.

Philo Supported Devices

Philo device support improved dramatically in 2018, and it now offers support for iOS, Apple TV (4th gen or later), Amazon Fire TV, and Roku, along with Mac and PC streaming through Chrome.

Frustratingly, though, Philo still refuses to release an app for Android users. You can watch Philo online through its website on the Chrome browser for Android, but this is not ideal. The user experience is, frankly, terrible, and it consumes a lot more battery power to watch video through your browser, making this less-than-ideal, to say the least. Learn more here.

Philo Simultaneous Streams

With Philo, you can stream on up to 3 devices at once, which is more than DirecTV Now without upgrading, and equal to the streams offered by Sling Blue, but at a much lower cost. Learn more here.

Philo DVR

You also get a DVR for free with Philo. While you can only store recordings for 30 days, you can save unlimited shows with the Philo DVR, unlike with Sling TV and DirecTV Now. If you need to save a lot of content from the Paramount Network, Philo may be the right choice for you. Learn more here.

Philo On-Demand Library

Philo has plenty of on-demand content, sourced from the various channels included in your package, including Paramount Network. You can expect to find recently-aired episodes, a few past seasons, and a selection of movies. Learn more here.

Watch Paramount Network on Sling TV

Sling TV is the oldest internet TV service, and was founded in early 2015. Since then, its unique “a la carte” approach to cable channels has gained it nearly 2.2 million subscribers. Here’s what you need to know about Sling TV.

Sling TV Pricing and Packages

Sling TV does things somewhat differently than other “skinny bundles”. Rather than a tiered subscription, it offers two primary packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue ($25/month) with distinct channels, which can be customized with extra add-on cable packages, or combined with Sling Orange + Blue for $40/month. Learn more here.

* You get 1 stream for Sling Orange channels and up to 3 simultaneous streams for Sling Blue channels.

Sling TV Channels

Sling Orange includes about 30 channels, depending on your geographic location. Some highlights of this package include ESPN, ESPN2, and the Disney Channel.

Sling Blue also costs $25/month and comes with mostly the same channels as Sling Orange, but brings the total number of channels to about 45 You also have the option of combining Sling Blue + Orange for $40/month for about 53 total channels, depending on your area.

However, Paramount Network is not part of any of these packages. You have to pay a $5/month fee to get Paramount Network, which is included in the “Comedy Extra” package for both Sling Blue and Sling Orange.

As an example, you’ll get Paramount Network with both Sling Blue and Sling Orange, if you get the Comedy Extra package.

But if you have Sling Blue and the Comedy Extra package, you’ll miss out on El Rey Network and TruTV, which you can only get if you have Sling Orange. If you have Sling Blue + Orange, you’ll get all of the networks available to both packages when you choose to add the Comedy Extra package. Learn more here.

Sling TV Supported Devices

One good aspect of Sling TV’s features is that you can stream on just about every device in your home. Sling TV supports on-the-go viewing on iOS and Android, as well as modern web browsers. On the big screen, you’ll be able to watch with Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One, and some late-model Samsung and LG Smart TVs using the Sling app. Learn more here.

Sling TV Simultaneous Streams

You only get 1 stream at a time with Sling Orange, due to licensing agreements with some of the channels provided in the bundle. With Sling Blue, though, you can stream all Sling Blue channels on up to 3 devices at once.

Another caveat of this is that even if you get Sling Orange + Blue, you can still only stream Sling Orange-exclusive channels, like ESPN, on a single device. If a channel is shared by both Sling Orange and Blue, though, you can stream it on 4 devices simultaneously (3 from Blue, 1 from Orange). Learn more here.

Sling TV DVR

Sling TV also offers a DVR, but it costs an extra $5/month. The DVR itself is decent. You get 50 hours of total storage, and there are no expiration dates for your content. You can keep your recordings for as long as you want. You can’t record ESPN and some other Disney-owned channels, though. Learn more here.

DirecTV Now is one of the most popular internet TV services, and is owned by AT&T. While it’s a decent way to watch Paramount Network without cable, its high price and relatively poor features mean you may want to look elsewhere.

  • Max: 50+ channels / $70 per month. Includes HBO, Cinemax

  • Ultimate: 125+ channels / $135 per month

DirecTV Now Channels

DirecTV Now DVR

The DirecTV Now DVR is pretty limited. You only get 20 hours, and your recordings are deleted after 30 days. Despite the fact that it’s free, it’s still the worst and most restrictive DVR option among all major “skinny bundle” services. Learn more here.

DirecTV Now On-Demand Library

DirecTV Now has a large selection of on-demand content, and claims to have more than 40,000 titles available for streaming. This varies over time, though, and also depends on how many channels you get in your DirecTV Now package. You can learn more here.

Paramount Network Website and Apps

Source: Paramount Network

One nice thing about most internet TV services is that if you subscribe to a particular channel, you will also get access to that cable channel’s mobile application and website for live streaming and on-demand viewing of past episodes.

This is true of the Paramount Network. If you subscribe to Philo or DirecTV Now, you can log into Paramount.com or download the Paramount app for your phone, or for Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.

Then, you just pick your internet TV provider and enter your login credentials, and you’ll be able to watch both live streams and on-demand content. Interestingly, Sling TV and fuboTV do not appear on the list of supported internet TV providers, so that’s something to keep in mind when deciding which “skinny bundle” you want to subscribe to.

The primary advantage of watching Paramount Network directly on its website or on its mobile app is that it does not count towards your simultaneous streams. For example, you could watch Paramount Network with your DirecTV Now login, and your family could still stream DirecTV Now on 2 other devices.
