If you're interested in affordable live TV, finding out about the Philo TV channels should be your first step in making a buying decision.

Philo does things a little bit differently from the best live TV streaming services. It only costs $25 per month, much less than the $60-$70 you're shelling out for rival services, but for your money, you get far fewer channels.

Deciding if Philo TV is right for you, then, comes down to finding out whether your favorite channel is offered by the service. 

While there's not much sport on Philo TV, and a limited amount of news, the 81 channels you do get do include some biggies like the Hallmark Channel and Nickelodeon. Plus, there are some add-on packages that bag you more channels — for a price.

To help you decide whether Philo TV is suitable for you, here's the full list of channels.
