About
Philo was created to build a better TV experience. We provide a next-generation TV service, available nationwide, with a growing array of traditional and digital channels. Philo’s current offering includes 35+ TV channels from A&E, AMCN, Discovery, Scripps and Viacom as well as Cheddar and AXS. With unlimited DVR and multi streams devices, Philo is a full featured product with multi-platform availability across web, apps and connected TV so that customers can watch where and when they choose.

Headquartered in San Francisco and led by one of the founding members of Facebook’s team, Philo began its journey on college campuses, where over 90% of student users expressed a desire to take Philo with them post-graduation. Our success in the collegiate space prompted the exploration of a product that would be available to everyone. Philo is also inspired by the inventors of television who hoped TV could help communities share stories and be less ignorant of one another.

Our team is re-imagining the future of TV every day. One of Philo’s guiding principles is to bring back the communal element of TV by exploring ways that modern technology and watching behaviors can be integrated into the experience to make it more enjoyable. As such, Philo is committed to continuously evolving its product and content offering.
