Casting to Chromecast sucks with this app. The player doesn't stay up or connected. It doesn't pick up where you left off. At the end of an episode instead of playing the next one it just repeats the one that just played. Would also love an option to adjust speed to 1.25 or 1.5x. Sometimes it just stops playing all together and shuts off in the middle. Ads are frequent and annoying, not something you'd expect for $25 a month. I will definitely not be continuing my membership after the free week.

Hi Jessica, we don't insert extra ad breaks into the network's content but you can Save (+) anything you're interested in watching to your unlimited DVR. Once your Saved shows have been recorded, you can skip the ads & get back to watching! For help with Chromecast, please give us a buzz at 855-CS-PHILO or by visiting philo.com/contact

This is a near perfect solution for cutting the cord for me. I literally cut my bill over 50% just buy using this app. It's one of a few apps that had all the channels I actually watch, History, Science, Discovery, and A&E. A couple of things I would love to see happen in the future is to be able to easily browse the guide while the current channel is in the background. I would also like the description in the guide to show the release date along side of the season and episode # for live TV.

1st of all, your "guide" is the worst ever. 2nd, I swear I've never seen so many ads on ANY other apps. Even my spectrum cable doesn't even have a fraction of the ads as this app. I just watched a movie and I had to rewind it to make sure because it was seeming ridiculous. There were ads at 1.29.00 then again at 1.32.00 then AGAIN at 1.38.00 then AGAIN 1.47.00 (I didn't right down the seconds tbh) right before the credits! I mean that ruined the end of a good movie! You guys s*ck!....js

We don’t determine the network’s ad break schedule, however, we do provide unlimited DVR with your subscription so you can quickly fast-forward through them (philo.tv/dvr). You can also browse channels alphabetically on the Guide page or favorite channels you'd like to see at the top!
