Next, we have Philo, one of the simplest and cleanest OTTs on our list. With only two bundles to pick from and no customization options, Philo makes things pretty easy for everyone. The two bundles are suggestively named 40 Channels and 49 Channels, so you know exactly what you’re going to get. BET is present in both bundles, so you’re going to have to pick one of the two – the first is $16 per month, while the second is $20 per month. You can read all about Philo in our review.

We hope our guide was useful in cutting down your research time on what OTT to pick once you’re rid of that pesky cable contract.
