Every day, more and more people are getting fed up with cable and deciding to cut the cord. And for good reason. Back in the day, your only alternatives were to somehow steal a free cable hook-up, or to rely solely on broadcast TV. Neither option was ideal. But luckily, in the streaming era, you have plenty of great (and legal) alternatives to choose from. And one of the best is Philo. And right now you can start a free week of the service with just your phone number.
Philo gives you access to 58 different channels, streamed live, right to your TV. This includes channels such as AMC, BBC America, BET, CMT, Comedy Central, Food Network, Game Show Network, History, IFC, MTV, and many more. But all this content costs a mere fraction of what the cable company would charge.
More precisely, Philo is only $20 per month. If you’ve ever paid for cable, you already know that’s a great deal. But live TV is not the only killer feature in Philo’s arsenal. If you feel like you’re addicted to your DVR and can’t live without it,, Philo also includes unlimited recording and storage of all your shows for up to 30 days. Plus, it comes with a complete on-demand library of programming. And all of this can be used on up to three devices at the same time.
While that’s an impressive deal on its own, right now Philo is also throwing in a couple extras to sweeten the deal. The first is that you can start your own seven-day free trial of the service without providing anything more than a phone number. That’s right, you don’t even need to provide a credit card in order to get started with Philo. Instead, you’ll be asked to provide the plastic a couple days into your week-long trial. After the free week, your subscription will begin, but unlike your local cable company it’s easy to cancel your plan at any time, should you decide to do so.
And if you sign up for six months of Philo for $120 up front, you get a 4K Amazon Fire TV Stick absolutely free. So this is a great option if you’re in the market for a streaming device. And of course, if you don’t need a new streaming device, Philo works on a number of other platforms, including those from Roku, Apple, and Android, just to name a few.
Between the low monthly rate, the free risk-free trial, and the complementary Amazon Fire TV Stick, you’re really running out of reasons to stick with cable. So head over to Philo’s official site right now and start your free trial with just your phone number.
