If you’re a fan of shows like Yellowstone and The Walking Dead, you may want to know about Philo’s free trial to stream AMC, Paramount Network and more channels for way less than normal cable subscriptions.

For those who don’t know, Philo is a live TV streaming service that offers more than 60 channels and cost $25 per month. (That’s less than half than what competitors like Fubo TV and Hulu+ With Live TV cost.) “We’re working to reinvent the television experience for the modern age and create a service you’ll love as much as the shows you watch. In short, we’re making the television experience we’ve always wanted for ourselves and everyone else who loves TV but hates the way it works,” Philo’s about page reads.

According to a report by NScreenMEedia in 2021, the number of people who have cut the cord on their cable subscriptions has more than tripled since 2014, going from 15.6 million people to 50.4 million people in 2021. Since the decline of cable TV, many viewers have turned to streaming alternatives like Philo as way to watch their favorite shows like but without the commitment of a traditional cable plan, which are more expensive, require a physical cable installation and often come with a contract. (Philo, on the other hand, can be cancelled at anytime, so users can test out the service without having to commit to a longer plan.) So how long is Philo’s free trial and what else does the service offer? Read on for what to know about Philo’s free trial ahead and what 60-plus channels are included.
