Can You Get a Philo Free Trial Without a Credit Card?

The answer is no - you cannot get a Philo free trial without a credit card. That is because you cannot subscribe to the Philo trial unless you provide a future form of payment, and the only available option is to fill in your credit or debit card details.

However, keep in mind that you can cancel at any time in order to avoid being charged if you think the service is not suited for your needs and don't want to subscribe after all.

Will the Philo Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Subscription?

Yes, the Philo free trial automatically renews into a subscription, so when your free trial period is over, your Philo account will automatically switch to a paid membership unless you cancel before that happens.

Most of the time, these services ask for a payment method upon subscribing to a free trial in order to make the transition to a paid subscription seamlessly after the free period comes to an end. This means the card you entered will be charged the standard price for your first month of the Philo base plan and also for any subscriptions you've added to your Philo membership upon subscribing. The date when your free trial ends will become your monthly billing date from now on.

How Much Does Philo Cost After the Free Trial?

If you decide not to cancel the subscription after your free trial comes to an end, you'll be charged the standard price for the base plan and any add-ons you selected while subscribing for the trial. The amounts you will pay are the ones shown for the plan and the add-ons you chose at the moment you subscribed.

If there's no promotion on display, the standard price for the single Philo plan is $25 per month (+ tax). However, if you got the T-Mobile TVision Hub offer for new subscribers, you will be charged for the first two months when the 7-day free trial ends, meaning you will pay $50 after the trial and then $25 per month starting with the third month.

The add-ons also have a 7-day free trial. This means the Philo trial and the add-ons trial end at the same time when the following amounts will be added to your $25 monthly subscription fee:

How to Cancel the Philo Free Trial?

If you feel like Philo isn't the streaming platform you were looking for, you can always cancel the trial before it ends so that you won't get charged for the service.

Here is how to cancel the Philo free trial:

  1. Open the Philo app or go to Philo on a web browser.
  2. Visit your Account page.
  3. Click Cancel my account at the bottom of the page.
  4. Then, click Submit cancellation to confirm.

You can cancel anytime during the 7-day free trial, and you'll still be able to watch Philo for the remainder of your trial period. By letting you cancel in advance, they spare you the stress of constantly checking for the trial expiration date.
