Philo offers both live and on-demand streaming TV options for a pretty low price tag. After a seven-day free trial, $25/month will get you 60+ channels of everything from BBC America to the Food Network and unlimited DVR storage. Philo allows for up to 10 profiles on one account and up to three simultaneous streams.

Looking for even more channel options? There are add-on options like Epix and Starz for an additional fee. While Philo offers plenty of lifestyle, and both national and international news channels, the platform is lacking local affiliates and sports options. Philo is available on Roku devices, Amazon Fire devices, Apple TV, Android smart TVs, LG smart TVs and web browsers. To learn more, visit
