Any fan of the A&E show 60 Days In knows it’s essential that participants maintain their cover stories.

There’s unlimited Cloud DVR and you can activate apps for A&E and many of your favorite channels.
Philo works on a Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or Android TV device.

Philo: Best Way to Watch 60 Days In Season 6
Philo is the least expensive way to live stream 60 Days In as each new episode airs on Tuesday night.
You can watch on up to three devices at once. You just need to use a Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or Android TV device like a NVIDIA Shield TV. Even if you’re someone who isn’t going to watch new episodes until the weekend, Philo is still your best deal.
You can record the shows using your Cloud DVR account. And Philo currently has Season 5 on demand. You’ll be able to activate the A&E app with your Philo account to watch Season 5 on the A&E app. But I prefer Philo’s on-demand library.
Philo also has AMC, Animal Planet, Comedy Central, Viceland and Sundance TV as part of its channel bundle.
I’ve been subscribing to Philo for more than a year now, and I’ve been very happy with the picture quality and channel selection. You can read my review of Philo, or sign up for a free 7-day trial. Unlike cable TV, there is no obligation to keep the service. Just cancel online if you don’t like the service.

Hulu is the best way to catch up on previous seasons of 60 Days In. Hulu’s on-demand library now carries Season 1 through Season 5.
You can sign up for Hulu’s on-demand service, especially because it’s super cheap at $5.99 per month.

You can try out Sling TV for free for seven days, and just cancel online if you decide it’s not for you.
