Philo is definitely on its way to competing with the other big boys in the live TV streaming game. Sling started out looking just about the same, with plenty of issues, and DirecTV Now has had more than its share of problems when they first went live. I've had Philo for a week now, no buffering issues at all (expected plenty, got none. A typical guide definitely needs to be put in place. I live in a rural area, but a 200 mile range antenna gets me the 4 major networks, so no issue for me there, and the selection of included channels for $16/month is pretty good. No sports, but watching only the NFL myself, I almost always see the games on Fox, NBC or CBS. Thursday night games on Amazon Prime. And, my internet provider lets me sign in to every TV app for Roku or Fire TV. With all the options available now to watch TV and movies (for free and legally if you know how) with only having internet service, adding $16/month for live TV is awesome, considering what I used to get gauged month after month by my cable co. I'm sure Philo, if they continue to work on current issues, and become more user friendly, will be a major player in 18 to 24 months. But, I'm sure by then the price per month will be equivalent to whoever is still operating. For now, it's a great alternative for those who want a really good selection of live cable TV channels, at a price less than a few meal deals at McD's, and don't mind switching to their antenna when they want to watch one of the big 4 networks. The only reason for 3 stars is the obvious issues every streaming service has had, nothing else. Well worth a try in that price range.

This is a great app if someone fix all the issues. When I was doing the free trails it was great but when I start paying for the service I am always getting a code error. I spent over two hours on the phone trying to figure it out with their tech and still the issue isn't resolved,, I'm still a member because this is actually something great Just really would like to see the code issues fixed starting the shows over every two minutes just doesn't work for me especially since I am a faithful member and payer of the service

I love the idea of this but it just buffers entirely too much. Every other second it's skipping. Also, I have to go through Google to use it cause the app says I'm in an unsupported area & to sign in with a demo account but then says it can't find my account. They need to go back to the drawing board with this one. It sucks cause like I said, it's a great idea & I would refer everyone to it. But not unless it gets better
