Can I record live TV or future shows to watch later?
- Yes, you can save your favorite shows to watch up to 30 days later.

Can I watch on multiple devices at the same time?
- Yes, you can watch different shows or channels (or the same show or channel) on up to 3 devices at the same time.

Look Back
- With Philo, you don't work around a TV schedule, it works around you. Missed something everyone's talking about? Philo lets you replay just about everything that's aired in the last 72 hours.

Live TV
- Philo is a spoiler-free zone. We start everything from the beginning but if you prefer, you can always watch a live broadcast in real time by Jumping to Live.

Seek restrictions & ad rules
- Anything you've saved has no seek restrictions
- You can fast forward but the last ad break is required (... unless you watched it already). You can't start fast forwarding during an unwatched ad break.
- Remember, you can always watch a live broadcast in real time by Jumping to Live and skip all the ads along the way.

Video on Demand
- If Live TV, Look Back and DVR don't cover it, Philo has over 1,000 hours of primetime content available to watch on-demand – just look for the VOD tags on Show Profiles.

Philo looks like it is geared toward cord cutters who do not watch sports. Good price.

But will stick with sports-heavy Sony Vue.

As a SlingTV user, which has its own drawbacks, I'm hesitant to switch as another user mentioned, because there are no on-demand options. With SlingTV, even without the DVR add-on, almost every channel has some shows with on-demand access, and many channels have fairly exhaustive lists on-demand. With back logs of many of the shows I watch, I would miss not having some sort of feature to watch at my own pace. Also on SlingTV, many popular shows are held for up to a week for on-demand streaming, so if I miss it, I can easily watch the show when I have time.

I'm not praising SlingTV, but showing that Philo is missing a key feature I use.

I saw this in my news app and signed up. Looks like someone finally got it right. The a la carte channels we were promised years ago never came to be, always forcing you to pay for sports and other channels you didn't want. This even has the science channel which is usually only available with more expensive packages. I wish AHC was included in the $16 model because it is the only extra channel I like and not sure if it is worth another 4 dollars.

I think this will be very successful as long as they don't start raising the price. So far the Roku app works fine. Haven't had any issues with streaming but have only had it for 2 hours.

I am thinking this may force the other online TV providers to cut prices. Competition is good,

From those that use it, any idea of the data consumption? I'd hate to blow through my ISP's cap.
