How to Record from Philo TV

With new and incredible services online offering the opportunity to binge-watch some new and groundbreaking movies and exclusive series, it’s great to know that it’s still possible to watch some of our very favorite channels online, without limits. With cable packages offering endless bundles of channels that you would never watch, and at prices seriously run amok, it’s no wonder that more and more people are making the switch to watching some of their favorite channels online. With Philo TV, you get all of your favorite entertainment and lifestyle channels, for a pretty great price, and not only that, there are a bunch of other perks that it comes with as well.

What’s Great About Philo TV?

Philo TV is an online subscription TV service that works from any device. Originally it worked only with Roku, but has since joined the big leagues of Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV, just to name a few. It’s a great place to stream and watch some of your favorite programs on over 58 channels (Hello, Food Network!), so you’ll always have something to fit your mood. With Philo TV, you can capture all of your binge-worthy programs, and watch them live, later or binge them all at once. Unlike network or cable TV, you don’t have to wait each week for a brand new episode!

One of the coolest things about the service? It gives you unlimited recording in-app, so you don’t have to limit yourself to only the shows you want to save. You can pretty much save any offering they have, and to make it even better, you can stream from three separate devices simultaneously. No more fights over who gets to have the remote.

With all that great stuff, it can’t go wrong, can it? Well, that depends. While it’s great to have in-app recording, it’s not really unlimited. You can record anything, but the recordings only last for a maximum of 30 days. That means you can carefully curate your absolute favorite shows, and create the ultimate playlist, only to lose everything after a month.

But what if you want to keep them longer? Replay Media Catcher has you covered. You can stream any of your favorite shows online, and save them, no matter what, so no matter how much time passes, you’ll never miss a thing.

How do you do it? Replay Media Catcher makes it so easy!

How to Record from Philo TV

You don’t have to miss a single show from Philo TV with Replay Media Catcher. All you have to do is follow these easy steps:

Step 1:

Open Replay Media Catcher for Windows or Mac.

Step 2:

Select “Auto Monitoring” to turn on.

Step 3:

Log in to your Philo TV account. Next, find the show that you want to save and start playing it. Once it begins, Replay Media Catcher will download it in a matter of seconds!

5 Reasons to Always Download Netflix Movies

When it comes to the hottest movies, or your must-watch series, Netflix is king. It has changed the way we watch movies and our favorite shows at home, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing. Our viewing habits have changed in big ways thanks to Netflix, which through it’s new releases and groundbreaking blockbusters, is making it possible to watch loads of content nearly immediately.

Thankfully, with Replay Video Capture, the power is back in your hands. You can download and save your favorites at anytime, to watch anytime, thanks to the software’s powerful technology.

Looking for some reasons to download your movies from Netflix? Here are a few of our biggest:

1. Outlast Netflix’s Rotating Catalog

Probably the number one reason to always download your Netflix favorites is because of what makes Netflix great… Their endlessly rotating catalog. Netflix is great at staying current and offering the freshest releases because of their incredibly narrow catalog and it’s pretty constant rotation. When you have Replay Video Capture, you really don’t have to worry about losing those movies in your queue that you’ve been dying to watch before they leave Netflix for good.

2. Create Your Own Personal Playlist of Amazing Movies

It’s hard to think of a better reason to download movies from Netflix than building your ultimate playlist of favorite movies. While traditionally, it was common to have a collection of pretty great DVDs, now most people are building a collection of their absolute favorite videos on a playlist. It’s fast, mobile, and now it doesn’t have to take up a ton of space to have your all-time favorites at your fingertips. Capturing your favorites from Netflix has really never been easier than with Replay Video Capture.

3. Watch Your Favorites While You Travel

Nothing beats finally taking an incredible vacation. There’s the infinite possibility of exploring somewhere new, coupled with the ability to get in some quality time with that highly-anticipated movie on your Netflix queue. But beyond reaching your dream destination, there are still lots of things to think about, especially if a long journey is involved. But nothing is more disappointing than finally reaching your destination only to find out that that coveted Netflix queue is actually not available in another area! With Replay Video Capture, you can download and save your favorites so you can watch your favorites while you are traveling by air, by train, or by sea.

4. Watch Your Favorites, No Wifi Required

Netflix is one of the best platforms for getting the freshest movies and series that come out. There is a whole catalog online for you curl up with on basically any day and watch for hours on end. The only thing better? Being able to watch your favorites without having to stay tethered to a Wifi connection or use up your phone’s precious data. With Replay Video Capture, you can download an unlimited amount of your favorites and watch them offline.

5. Keep Your Favorites Forever, Even After They Are Long Gone

Netflix isn’t just movies. It’s actually known for some of it’s incredible original shows. But just because you love it and want to keep watching it for years to come doesn’t mean that it will stay around. In fact, Netflix is known for cycling out obvious fan favorites in favor of bringing on new programs. It’s not a bad thing, especially if it means fresh series are on the horizon.

But if you have a favorite that gets cancelled, where does that leave you? Fortunately, with Replay Video Capture, you won’t get stuck with losing your favorite shows. Keep your favorite storylines alive for good by downloading and saving your favorites.

There’s no reason to lose track of your favorite movies and series. Netflix has a fast rotation, but you can be faster… Especially with Replay Video Capture behind you. You never have to miss a thing, and you can keep your favorites to watch over and over, no matter where you are. Ready to get started?
