If you’re looking to follow the massive Exodus of folks breaking up with their cable companies, there’s no better time than now. Philo is already the most affordable cable live-streaming service, but for a limited time, there’s a way you get the service for free.

You can try Philo for free for a week before settling on a month to month bill.

What is Philo?

For those unfamiliar with the service, Philo is one of many cable live-streaming services that works straight from your internet browser or a myriad of your favorite streaming devices. A handful of the 45 channels available on the most basic Philo package includes A&E, IFC, ID, Lifetime, MTV, VH1Nickelodeon, Food Network, Comedy Central, TLC, Discovery, History Channel, and BBC America. There’s a significant lack of sports and local news channels, but the savings are worth it if you’re a fan of reality and cable television. You will also gain instant access to on-demand episodes of your favorite shows like Street Outlaws, Killing Eve, Portlandia, Better Call Saul, and Surviving R. Kelly.

How much does Philo cost?

After the free trial is over, Philo costs $20 per month with deep cable cuts like BET Her, Cooking Channel, Logo, and Nicktoons. Most other live streaming services cost upward of $40, so even when the free trial is over, Philo is by far the best bang for your buck. 

You can watch Philo on RokuiOSAndroid, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, and Fire TV. It also works on your web browser.
