Philo on Roku

Update April 22, 2019: Philo is changing its plans and pricing.

Choice is everything when it comes to streaming TV. And another interesting option is upstart Philo.

Philo spent much of its life with just two plans — one at $16, and another with additional channels at just $20 a month. But starting May 6, 2019, Philo moved to a single-plan structure. It's still plenty affordable — 58 channels for $20 a month — it's just that new subscribers won't have any other choices. It's that or nothing.

The good news? It's still a fairly comprehensive set of channels — particularly given the price. It can go a long way toward filling the holes in competitors' plans — or maybe it's just enough on its own. Your call, of course.
