Philo is now offering five weeks of its streaming service for $5 as a Black Friday promotion.

But there’s something you need to know first. The service normally charges $25 a month. However, if you insert the code, THANKS, when clicking the Redemption Code button here, you will get 80 percent off the first month. That means your first month will cost just $5.

In addition, Philo offers a free seven-day trial so you get five weeks for the $5.

Philo offers more than 70 ‘basic cable’ channels such as AMC, A&E, TV Land, OWN, Paramount Network, Lifetime, Comedy Central, MTV, Game Show Network and BET. You can see the complete list here.

At $25 a month, Philo still has the lowest price of all major live streaming services, including Sling TV, which this year increased its base price to $40 a month. Philo can charge a lower rate because it does not carry any sports channels, such as ESPN, Fox Sports, or regional sports channels, or any local network affiliates. The decision to omit sports channels and network affiliates allows Philo to charge less because both groups are very expensive to carry. (ESPN, for instance, arguably charges more in carriage fees than any other channel.)

Philo isn’t the only premium net or streaming service that is running a special price promotion during the Black Friday week.
