Otta's take

CTO of Otta

Streaming services offer cheaper options than cable TV packages, but prices are beginning to rise. This is partly due to packages beginning to bundle costly sports and other media packages that viewers do not necessarily want.

Philo offers a streaming service that aims to provide a streamlined selection of channels as an affordable, yet comprehensive, viewing option. The streamlined and high-quality channel offerings are available to viewers at $25 per month, a price significantly lower than standard cable subscriptions, with the base option including 60 live channels and 60,000 on-demand offerings.

Whilst other streaming platforms offer affordable packages, Philo stands out with unique features such as a co-viewing service that allows up to three people to watch the same program together. The company has also proven its dedication to improved user experiences, as it expands its compatibility with devices such as smart TVs.
