Philo TV subscription review

Pushali Banerjee | Streaming Expert

If you ask me about my personal experience with Philo, I would rate Philo TV 9.5 out of 10. The 0.5 point deducted is because it doesn’t provide my favorite sports, news, and local channels. When compared with other streaming players, It is ranked after FuboTV and sling TV.

It’s not the best option for sports and news lovers which justifies Philo TV's low-cost services. Although you can watch sports on Philo but only when one of its channels is broadcasting it. Apart from that, it is a dream deal for any bargain seeker with its quality and price.

As part of Philo TV  reviews, I must mention Philo's DVR. Which is a great service for viewers who like to record an unlimited amount of their favorite tv shows and series to watch later at their preferred time and speed.
