Philo TV Raises Price and Discontinues $16 Plan

Philo TV, one of the cheapest live TV streaming services available on the web today, has announced that they are going to be making some changes to how people sign up for their service and also how much they are going to pay.

To kick things off, Philo TV will be getting rid of the $16 a month plan. This plan contained 45 channels, with another $20 a month package containing 58 channels.

Customers currently on the $16 a month plan will be grandfathered into the old plan and will be able to switch between the $16 a month and $20 a month plans.

All of these changes will go into place on May 6, 2019.

In a statement, Philo TV CEO Andrew McCollum said this:

At Philo, we care deeply about creating the best TV experience possible at an affordable price. Since we launched 18 months ago, most of the other companies in our space have raised their prices, in some cases multiple times. We didn’t want to do that. Still, when we looked at all of the costs of operating Philo—which increase over time—consolidating into a single $20 package was the best way for us to maintain the same offering we have today without raising prices for everyone, or having to cut back in places we strive to excel, like our customer support...Again, nothing is changing for anyone who has already subscribed by May 6—you will keep the package you have and will continue to be able to switch between our two existing packages.

Philo TV is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
