Philo TV

Philo is a streaming TV and DVR service that lets students who live on the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses watch and record their favorite shows whenever they want.

Students may use Philo anywhere on the campus that is their official residence at Fordham University. (Philo is not available off campus and does not work over a VPN connection.) Students who use Philo should review the terms in our policy on acceptable use for wireless devices at Fordham University. Also, due to licensing conflicts beyond Fordham's control, there is no DVR capability for ESPN or ABC/Disney channels.

Philo works on most devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

For a complete overview of Philo's features and how to use them, consult the Philo Usage Guide.

Philo is provided by Fordham University in partnership with Privatel cable service.
