Great for college students! Make an Apple TV App.


For the most part, this service is awesome. Occasionally there are some glitches, but overall it as an awesome commodity that schools provide for their students. The app works super well on iPad and iPhone. Although you can AirPlay to an Apple TV, it would be much easier if there were an app you could download onto your AppleTV instead. A must have app if you’re at a participating college.



This app never works. Not on my iPhone or iPad. It never gets to the loading screen even. I have full WiFi in my dorm hall because I’m able to watch Netflix on all my devices. But whenever I try to give this dumb thing a try it doesn’t even load. I haven’t even been able to see what is on TV. I’ve had this in our building for 8 weeks and I’ve never been more disappointed with something at my College. 0/10. Never get this. Philo Edu should be illegal. I hate it with a passion. If zero stars was possible then I would give it that.



Philo is a great service for students. It works well for me and the fact that recordings are just stored in the cloud and not on your phone is nice. You can record as much as you want or watch live tv. The app has occasional glitches. I would really love to see an Apple TV app or an Xbox app to watch it on a tv
