Philo drives a hard bargain.
With Philo, you get 40 channels of live TV for just $16 per month. And these aren’t throwaway channels, either. We’re talking about MTV, Comedy Central, AMC, and the Food Network, among others. You won’t be able to watch local channels—for that you might want to invest in an HD antenna—and you’ll have a hard time streaming football or other sports, but you’ll have no shortage of entertainment options.
Here’s everything you can look forward to with Philo.

Philo is the cheapest way to watch AMC online, which is helpful if you’re looking to upgrade to the ad-free AMC Premiere. There are some other surprising cable favorites to be found too, including Comedy Central, MTV, IFC, and VH1. Just in time for Hallmark’s annual Countdown to Christmas, Philo added Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, for a total of 43 channels in its base package.

All three were added in October 2018.
