How to watch Philo on iPhone

Thanks to its ubiquity and constantly updated UI, Apple's iPhone is just as much an able streaming device as any smart TV is. Whether you're on the go or on your bed, you've likely used your phone on more than one occasion to watch your favorite show, and that's exactly by design. You'll find most if not all streaming apps available on the App Store. 

Philo, meanwhile, is a streaming service that offers both live and on-demand TV options. Though it may not have much in the sports and news departments, it is the perfect choice for lifestyle and entertainment aficionados since the streamer airs live from channels like HGTV, MTV, and TLC. This is on top of its on-demand channels, a roster that includes the likes of BBC, Nickelodeon, Discovery, AMC, and Paramount. Starting at $25/month, you can stream Philo simultaneously on 3 devices and create up to 10 individual profiles.

What is Philo?

Philo is a rising star as an affordable live TV and streaming platform you can get for $25 a month. With more than 60 channels to choose from across 3 devices simultaneously, watch series and shows from popular channels without breaking the bank. The only caveat is Philo’s limited options for local news and sports channel streaming and lineup, which would not be a problem for watchers of on-demand content. Philo’s easy-to-use interface, availability on a variety of devices, and unlimited DVR storage make it a sweet deal cord-cutters can’t resist.
