Philo’s live TV streaming service is still one of the more affordable options on the market; due to its strategic decision to not stream sports.
Until today, Philo hasn’t been well-serving a large portion of its user base: Android users. Basically, the Android users could only access Philo from a mobile web browser, while iOS users had their own dedicated app. Well, that’s now changing with the official launch of a native Android app.
The app is available by clicking here on Google Play.
Also, Philo is cheap mainly because of its option of providing an option for cord cutters who mainly want access to the traditional cable TV networks focused on entertainment, news, movies, kids, and other lifestyle content.

The new Android app will be generally comparable to the iOS experience, though it has a somewhat different layout. While iOS features navigation buttons for Home, Live, Saved, Search, and Settings, the Android version switches things up a bit. Instead, its navigation features Home, Guide, Saved, Search, and a user profile button.
More Insight –
It also includes a Recommended section, in addition to the Trending Live and New and Upcoming sections. And instead of row of thumbnails in iOS’s Live, it presents a grid-like TV guide for finding something to watch in Guide. Many of the live TV services have switched over to the grid guide format, having realized that when it comes to finding live content, people still prefer to see things organized by what’s on now in a more standard layout.
Philo users can choose to either watch TV live or save shows to watch later, on up to three devices. The company recently did away with its multiple tiered pricing to combine packages into a single $20 per month option with 58 channels.
In addition to the Android native app, Philo is also today launching an app for Amazon’s Fire tablets (Fire OS 5 and up).
