Philo may have left it late to launch its Black Friday 2022 deal, but with 80% off the first month, it is a good one. This year has seen plenty of Black Friday discounts on subscription services and devices. However, there haven’t been many for those looking to reduce the cost of live TV.


The standard Philo subscription costs $25 per month, making it one of the most affordable live TV services around. For that price, subscribers get access to more than 60 live TV channels, an unlimited cloud DVR, and access to a on-demand library of movies, shows and more.

To celebrate Black Friday, Philo is offering new users an 80% discount on their first month. As a result, it is now possible to sign up for the base live TV plan for just $5. This is a huge deduction on what is already a cheap price for live TV, making it a deal worth checking out. To take advantage of the promotion, head over to the Philo website, and sign up using the THANKS promo code, making sure that the cost of the first month does lower to $5 before completing the sign up.


It should be kept in mind that the Philo $5 promotion does only apply to the very first month. After which, the subscription will automatically renew at the usual $25 monthly rate unless canceled. The ability to sign up at this lower rate will remain available through Cyber Monday and will eventually end on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022.

For those still unsure of whether this is the right service for them, the decision will most likely come down to the channel lineup. Philo doesn’t carry local or sports channels but does include Paramount Network (yep, Yellowstone), As well as AMC, Discovery, Food Network, Lifetime, and Hallmark, among others. If the selection of channels meets a home’s needs, its hard to find better value at $25 per month, let alone $5 for the first month.
