The Perfect Pair

When combined, the basic packages from PlayStation Vue and Philo will total $60.99/month. For that, you’ll be able to watch everything from primetime TV on the major channels to hidden gems on niche channels.

PlayStation Vue has a lot to offer. You definitely won’t be missing cable when you can sit down to watch your favorite Thursday night lineup of primetime shows. Philo works well alone but is even better when paired with a service like PS Vue that has the mainstream channels. Philo fills in the gaps with lifestyle and entertainment content.

Each service has their own Cloud DVR, so you’ll be able to save all of the content you’ll want to watch later. With solid mobile apps, you won’t have a problem switching between the two to get through your entire watchlist when you’re away from home. At home, you’ll be able to easily switch between the two user-friendly services to watch live or on-demand content.

With a good collection of channels in nearly every genre, live and on-demand content, and unlimited Cloud DVR storage, this combo could be your perfect pair for a complete cord cutting system.
