Hello and welcome to Philo! We are glad to have you join us on our journey to create a better way to watch television.
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT GOVERNS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND PHILO (REFERRED TO IN THIS AGREEMENT AS "PHILO," "WE," "US," AND "OUR") AND YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES.
THIS AGREEMENT INCLUDES AN EXPLANATION OF HOW DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US ARE TO BE RESOLVED, INCLUDING THAT ANY DISPUTES MUST BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION AND THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY CLASS ACTION (see Section 14, Dispute Resolution and Arbitration).
THIS AGREEMENT ALSO INCLUDES DISCLAIMERS OF CERTAIN ASSURANCES ABOUT OUR SERVICES (see Section 15, Disclaimers; No Warranty), LIMITATIONS ON OUR POTENTIAL LIABILITY FOR THE AMOUNT AND TYPES OF DAMAGES (see Section 16, Limitation of Liability), AND A LIMITATION ON THE PERIOD OF TIME YOU HAVE TO START A LEGAL ACTION AGAINST US (see Section 14(p)), Dispute Resolution and Arbitration).
By using our Services, you agree to be legally bound by this Agreement. We may amend this Agreement from time to time, and it may be necessary for you to agree to additional terms and conditions to continue use of our Services. Your use of our Services after it is amended means you agree to the amendments. Amendments will be effective immediately or, if required by law, 30 days after notice to you, which may be given by posting the amendments on our Services, by SMS message or by electronic or conventional mail. If you do not agree to any amendment, you may not use our Services, and you may receive a pro-rated refund for any of your pre-paid fees for our Services you do not use by contacting us through philo.com/contact within 30 days of the effective date of the amendment.
This Agreement covers these Services: (a) the philo.com website and all corresponding domains, subdomains, and web pages associated with it (collectively, the "Website"), and (b) our video streaming service that provides live and time-shifted television programming (the "Video Content") delivered over the Internet and the applications on consumer devices to which the Video Content is delivered, including desktop computers, mobile phones, tablets, and connected television devices. The Services also include our proprietary, IP-based content delivery platform that provides a suite of related features and functionality, including digital video recording (DVR) capabilities, program guides, video-on-demand features, social networking functionality, notification services, and other content and resources.
The Services do not include websites, applications or other services or products that link to other terms of service, including without limitation, the Philo Edu service that provides video streaming over private networks to college campuses, which is subject to the Philo Edu Terms of Service. You are authorized to use our Services only if and for so long as you agree to abide by all applicable laws, rules and regulations and this Agreement.
You are solely responsible for all uses of your Account, regardless of whether you authorized such use, and for ensuring that all use of your Account complies fully with this Agreement. You agree that you will maintain and promptly update your information so that it remains current, complete, truthful, and accurate. You are solely responsible for your own losses and losses incurred by Philo and others due to any unauthorized use of your Account. In our discretion, we reserve the right to deny the creation of any Account, and the right to deny use of our Services for any reason. Cancellation of your Account for violation of this Agreement may result in the loss of data or purchases associated with your Account.

Your mobile or wireless device carrier's message and data rates may apply to any messages sent to you from us and to us from you, even for Services for which Philo does not charge a fee. You are solely responsible for any carrier fees or charges incurred in connection with our Services. Your consent to providing your mobile number and receiving text messages is not a condition of purchase.

Subscriptions, Auto-Renewal and Cancellation
Please review each product description, the cost, applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges, and subscription term carefully before ordering or paying. At the beginning of each new subscription term, the cost of each subscription plus applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges will automatically be charged to your Account without further notice. The price of your subscription may change, and we will notify you of any changes. You may contact us through philo.com/contact to request that we email you a receipt of each month's charges.
After completing your subscription order, you will receive a confirmation of the transaction and auto-renewal. You consent to receiving the confirmation via email to the email address, or if you have not provided an email address, the mobile number, connected to your Account. As with all transactions, you may print and retain a copy of your confirmation for your reference. You may request instead to receive a hard copy via regular mail.
By creating your Account, you are agreeing to pay for all transactions made through your Account, including recurring charges for subscriptions that are not cancelled prior to their automatically renewing, and authorizing us to charge your payment card for these transactions. Unless we are required by law or you do not agree to this Agreement, we will not provide a refund or credit for any reason, including without limitation, for any period remaining in your subscription after you cancel your subscription. The price applicable to your transaction will be the price that was in effect at the time of the transaction. Special products, prices and promotions are no longer valid once they expire or are changed.
Prices listed do not include sales tax. Applicable sales tax will be calculated and added at the time you complete a transaction.
Subscriptions are month-to-month and renew automatically unless you cancel by contacting us through philo.com/contact to request a cancellation or by signing in to your Account page, and following the cancellation instructions. For certain third-party billers, e.g., Amazon, Roku, or Apple, you will be directed to their application or website to manage your subscription and cancellation. Cancellation will take effect at the end of the then current subscription term. You can view your subscription renewal dates in your Account settings. For certain third-party billers, the cancellation will not be reflected in your Account until you reach the end of your billing cycle.
Further information about managing your subscriptions is available at help.philo.com.
Your use of our Services requires compatible devices, a high-speed internet connection and certain software that may require periodic updates, and our Services may be affected by the performance of these devices, connection, and software. You are responsible for obtaining, maintaining, and paying for all devices, connectivity, and software needed to use our Services.
When you sign up for an Account, our Services may begin with a free trial period. During the trial period, you will be asked to provide additional information, which may include your name, email address and/or mobile phone number, billing zip code, and payment card information. At the end of the trial period and each subsequent billing period, if you have not cancelled your subscription, you will be charged for the Service. To avoid any charges, you must cancel your subscription prior to expiration of the free trial period. There is a limit of one free trial per household. See complete Philo Free Trial Offer Terms and Conditions here.
Promotional Offers & Discounts
From time to time, we may make promotional offers. These offers may be available only to select subscribers or subscriptions, may be limited in time and/or geographic area, may require you to make a minimum purchase or to purchase a particular subscription, or may exclude particular products. For example, we may offer a discount coupon in a stated amount (e.g., a discount off your first month's subscription), or we may provide a promotional code (which must be redeemed as part of the offer), or a discount for a limited time (e.g., a lower rate for the first 2 months of your subscription). We may provide promotional offers to you directly or through third parties; if from a third party, you will be subject to any additional terms and conditions prescribed by the third party, including their right to modify or cancel that offer. Typically, promotional offers cannot be combined; however, certain offers may be redeemed in addition to any free trial period. Although additional or alternative terms and conditions may apply to a particular promotional offer (and will be stated in conjunction with that offer as applicable), please see these Promotions Offers Terms and Conditions which apply to all of our promotional offers.

Some Video Content may be objectionable or age-inappropriate for some viewers. The Services are not intended to be used by children under 16 without approval of a parent or guardian. As the parent or legal guardian, you are responsible for the use of your Account and our Services by your children.
Video Content and Video Streams
Video Content on our Services may be viewed only through your Account and cannot be transferred outside of your Account. Each Account can view up to a maximum of three video streams concurrently. Certain variables are out of our control, including, among others, availability of Video Content from our third party providers, the speed of your broadband or network connection, compatibility between the Video Content's format and the device you use to access it, and any restrictions that may be imposed on the Video Content by our third party providers, and these variables may cause delays, technical difficulties, or an inability to view the Video Content. Digital versions of some Video Content may be different from the original formatted content or previously released versions of the same titled content.
Video Content may be available as a live or near-live stream ("Live Stream Content") or as a licensed stream supported by advertising or promotional materials that may be for a limited duration ("Ad Supported Content"). Video Content is subject to digital rights management rules and may be subject to other restrictions and limitations depending on the type of Video Content or the device you use to access Video Content. Some of these restrictions are described below.
Live Stream Content comprises live or near-live transmissions of live events and may be viewed at the time of, and simultaneously with, the occurrence of the events themselves and may also be available for an extended period past the occurrence of the event. When you access Live Stream Content, you may be unable to view any part of it that occurred prior to the start of your viewing. We have no control over the start, duration or end of the event or its content (including, among other things, its quality or suitability).
Ad Supported Content is Video Content that contains advertising, marketing, or other promotional materials (together, the "Promotional Materials"). Ad Supported Content may include Promotional Materials that may delay or interrupt its playback. You may not be able to skip or fast forward through Promotional Materials. We do not endorse any third-party Promotional Materials in any manner and give no warranty or other assurance in relation to any products or services featured in Promotional Materials.

From time to time we may offer a free trial of a Philo® subscription package for a stated period of time ("Trial Period"), redeemable at www.philo.com ("Trial Offer" or "Offer"). Philo reserves the absolute right to withdraw, cancel, early terminate, or modify any and all Trial Offer(s), or any element thereof, at any time and for any reason. After termination, Philo shall not be obligated to redeem such Trial Offer(s).
A Trial Offer is offered to new Philo subscribers only in the 50 United States (and its territories) ("U.S.") who are U.S. residents 18 or older. You may only use this Trial Offer once per household. If you have subscribed to Philo or have taken a free Trial Offer previously, you are not eligible. Current paying Philo subscribers are not eligible.
Free Trial Offers may differ. Generally, you will be asked to provide your mobile number or email address and payment information in order to activate a Philo account and start the initial free Trial. If payment information was not provided at sign-up, after you have enjoyed Philo for free for a time, you will be asked to provide payment information either at the end of the free Trial Period (when you will be charged), or in order to continue the remaining days of the free Trial Period (you will not be charged at that time). Philo and/or Philo affiliates may advertise an Offer via URL in various media to certain customers, or may send a URL link directly to customers; customers may start their free Trial by going to the stated URL, or by clicking the link, entering their mobile number or email address, and at that time will be asked to provide payment information immediately (again, you will not be charged until the end of the free Trial Period). IMPORTANT NOTICE: At the conclusion of the applicable Trial Period, the free Trial Offer immediately expires and your account automatically converts to a paid subscription for the Philo services (plus taxes) on a recurring monthly basis. If you do not cancel during the free Trial Period, you will be charged. To cancel your subscription, visit your Account page and select cancel subscription at the bottom of the page. If you are using a third-party billing platform, you must cancel through the third party. Subscriptions automatically renew each month until cancelled. Cancellation takes effect on the next monthly billing date. There are no refunds or credits for partial monthly subscriptions.
A free Trial Offer is not transferrable or assignable. Offer may not be combined with other promotions, discounts or offers unless expressly permitted and stated by Philo in conjunction therewith. If for any reason an Offer, or any element thereof, is compromised or not capable of running as planned, due to virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, cheating, technical failures, any force majeure event, artifice or any other causes similar or dissimilar, Philo reserves the right to cancel, terminate, or modify the Offer or any element thereof at any time. Void where taxed, restricted or otherwise prohibited, and to employees of Philo. Philo’s decisions are final and binding.
These Promotional Offers Terms and Conditions apply only to the general Philo video streaming service that provides live and time-shifted television programming, and do not apply to the Philo Edu service that provides video streaming over private networks to college campuses. Philo reserves the absolute right to withdraw, cancel, early terminate, or modify any Offer, or any element thereof, at any time and for any reason. After such time of termination, Philo shall not be obligated to redeem that Offer.
Eligibility: Each Offer is available in the 50 United States (and its territories) ("U.S."), and open only to U.S. residents 18 or older.

General Offer Terms: If for any reason an Offer, or any element thereof, is compromised or not capable of running as planned, due to virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, cheating, technical failures, any force majeure event, artifice or any other causes similar or dissimilar, Philo (or its affiliate or third party if applicable) reserves the right to cancel, terminate, or modify such Offer or any element thereof at any time. A waiver of any provision herein by Sponsor does not constitute a future waiver of that, or any other provision. Any invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be deemed severed (to the extent of its invalidity) and these Terms shall be construed and enforced without it. If you violate any Offer Terms, such Offer will be invalid. Void where taxed, restricted or otherwise prohibited, and to employees of Philo. Philo’s decisions are final and binding.

Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Any Entry that appears to be noncompliant or inappropriate will not be eligible and will be disqualified. Promotion may be advertised via more than one Social Media Platform; however, Entries will only be accepted via the email link to the survey specified herein. Entries may only be submitted by a single registered Philo base account user; submissions (suspected of being) received from, facilitated by or through ineligible individuals/entities, third party couponing/free-sample or similar third-party websites (whether or not paid), or group or commercial submissions are invalid and will not be eligible for participation in the Promotion. Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same device, account, IP or email address. By entering, you agree to be contacted by Sponsor (and its authorized representatives) with communications and reminders relating to the Promotion. Promotion Entities have the right to verify Entries and/or Entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, and on the basis of the investigation, to disqualify any Entry/Entrant at any time during or after the Promotion Period. Without limitation, Sponsor reserves the unfettered right NOT to provide Entry, or prize award, in whole or in part, if doing so may result in public disrepute, scandal, or may have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, Promotion Partner, this Promotion, or any of Sponsor’s and/or Promotion Partner’s brands, products or services (as determined by Promotion Entities in their absolute discretion). Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor shall have the right at any time, where necessary, to undertake all action including, but not limited to, voiding/canceling the Promotion, subject a winner to disqualification, prize forfeiture and/or immediate prize return (from a previously confirmed winner, if applicable) and/or require further information as is reasonable to protect any one of the Promotion Entities against fraudulent or invalid claims, potential public scandal, ridicule, or disrepute in awarding the prize to any Entry, Entrant or winner. Incomplete, invalid, illegal, unsuitable, unauthorized, or otherwise non-compliant Entries (as determined in Sponsor’s absolute discretion) will not be eligible.

Any Entrant who is suspected of cheating, using fraudulent means, unauthorized Entry methods, attempting to participate multiple times with multiple e-mail, accounts, and/or addresses under multiple or false identities, or engaging in or benefitting, directly or indirectly, from artifice of any other kind, as determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, will void all such Entries, and disqualify any Entrant suspected of using/benefitting from such methods. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an online Entrant, the authorized account holder of the Philo account used in connection with the Entry will be deemed to be the Entrant. Potential winner(s) may be required to show proof of being the authorized Philo account holder, or otherwise eligible.

RANDOM DRAWING/ODDS/PRIZE NOTIFICATION: At the end of the Promotion Period a random drawing will be conducted by Sponsor (or its authorized representative) on or within approx. fifteen working days to select ten (10) potential Grand Prize winners from all eligible Entries received during the Promotion Period. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible Entries received during the Promotion Period. Potential winners will be notified via email address approximately ten (10) working days from the drawing. Potential winners must respond within the time and in the manner specified in the notification, or they will forfeit the prize and an alternate potential Grand Prize winner may be randomly selected in Sponsor’s sole discretion. If a potential winner is unable for any reason to accept the prize in its entirety, refuses the prize, fails to timely respond, fails to (timely) provide or satisfy required documentation or follow instructions within the time specified by Sponsor, or is otherwise non-compliant, or found to be ineligible, they will forfeit the prize and an alternate potential winner may be randomly selected in Sponsor’s sole discretion. One additional attempt to notify an alternate potential winner will be made; thereafter, the prize will be forfeited. Promotion Entities shall have no liability for any prize or prize notification that is returned, intercepted, not received, not delivered, misdirected (i.e. into spam/junk folders), not timely acted upon, or otherwise not responded to by a potential winner for any reason whatsoever, and prize will be forfeited. Returned prizes will not be re-awarded. There will not be a second chance drawing.

Promotion Entities are not responsible for any undelivered calls, messages, e-mails, or any other communications, including but not limited to those that are not received because of any privacy, junk or spam filter settings that may divert any notification, prize or other Promotion related e-mail to a spam or junk folder.

Winners agree that prize is personal to them, and may not be assigned, exchanged, transferred, donated or otherwise conveyed.
